Rain should really be called for in this. I know it doesn't make a huge difference, but as a Bostonian it's a key point. Plus, this drink is how No.9 gets a bunch of the BT antique collection every year - they threaten to start using a different vodka, and they make so many of these that the distributor relents...

Didn't know that about No.9 and BT, awesome. Done.
