If you stop by the bar at Dunville's Restaurant in Westport, Connecticut, you can order a beer and shot, if you want. But the owner there, Stephen Carpentieri might encourage you to be a little more adventurous - maybe ordering a cocktail that combines the flavors of cucumber and lime with a few different kinds of spirits.
