I don't know what is sexier this 'Limoni' cocktail or the bartender Valentino or @jholano's video magic 🔥🔥🔥 Blanco Tequila, Coconut Infused Martini Bitter, Cocchi Vermouth, Lemon Sherbet
When a drink has a limit of “2 per traveler,” for a lightweight like me, that means trouble. Probably one of my favorite cocktails, though (Shackleton’s Urn - old Tom gin, navy strength gin, Jamaican rum, green chili, aperol, passion fruit, cinnamon, peach, and lime)
It’s just a Wednesday in August. Maybe you’re sitting in a chair at a desk, or on a park bench watching the pigeons scavenge for food scraps. Who knows, maybe you’re on the subway hoping to get home soon, take a break, and recharge for Thursday morning. Regardless of where you are now, what you should be doing is taking a first moment to reflect on your week, to learn from it. Then, you should take the second moment to remember a joyous occasion, to smile and partake in the memory. To achieve a perfect set of moments, let your third focus on Rosy Cheeks. This delightful nectar was hand-crafted by @panzerwolf from @vidaverdenyc in collaboration with Keep It Crafted, @gozatequila, and @atthemeadow. It is the highlight of anyone’s day, guaranteed. Read on to learn how to mix this drink on your own and to celebrate yourself for a few moments.
1 oz Blanco Tequila @gozatequila
3/4 oz Rose Cordial @portlandsyrups
1/2 oz Lime Juice
3 dashes Honeyed Apricot & Smoked Hickory @mister_bitters
4 oz Brut Cava
1/4 oz Raspberry Liqueur @stgeorgespirits
Shake tequila, rose cordial, lime juice and bitters with ice. Pour over rocks in a Collins glass, top off with cava, and float raspberry liqueur with the back of a bar spoon. Garnish with lavender sprigs and a lime bow tie.

There’s a world upstairs, beyond the one we know down here. I’m not talking about heaven, I’m talking about something better: Banzabar. Upon entering through the unassuming sliding door above the restaurant downstairs, at the end of an alleyway, you’re met by @jbrowbrow and team in their candle-lit, antique-laden speakeasy. You’ll take a look at the menu and become entranced as it takes you through a simpler time in history—when pirates and the Kraken were the dangers of life. Do choose what you like, but undoubtedly order Shackleton’s Urn (described below). And don’t worry that they limit it to two per patron. The fantastic @erynreece designed a menu that will satisfy all of your wants and spirits.
Shackleton’s Urn from @banzarbar is a unique craft of its own.
Old Tom Gin
Navy Strength Gin
It’s not just a drink. It’s a piece of liquid art held in porcelain for you to imbibe upon.

Super orgoglioso e fiero della mia prima ricetta originale:
Il sultano venne tradito dalla moglie, scatenò allora la sua rabbia su tutte le future spose, uccidendole dopo la prima notte di nozze. Ma la bellissima e intelligente Shahrazad placò la sua ira: ogni sera gli raccontava una fiaba, svelando però il finale solo il giorno seguente, rimandando il macabro cerimoniale. E così, dopo mille una notte, il sultano si innamorò di lei. Le note mielate e i gusti della frutta secca del classico dessert medio-orientale e nordafricano baklava, ispirano questo after-dinner. Perché la dolcezza dell'amore vinca sempre sull'odio. • Frangelico
