Last Friday, The Patty and I attended a Food and Beverage Sampling in NYC called Cook, Eat, Drink, Live. One of the presentations was by Leo Robitschek, who made some cocktails from the book Mix, Shake, Stir. I was very impressed. I got a copy of the book, signed of course.
New versions and twists on Classic Cocktails and some great new metro-style cocktails as well.
Worth checking out. The author is restauranteur Donny Meyers.
Interesting notes about bar tools, glasses etc.
