Default New York July 13

It was an ominous Friday the 13th when I found myself regrouping after a night out in New York City that included a ti punch in a bar I discovered through the back door of a telephone booth in a hot dog stand. No it wasn't late, actually that was only my second drink of the evening, and I was delighted to see one of my old friends behind the bar with a good selection of spirits in this cool place to get out of the heat.

As someone who doesn't live in Manhattan, I'm still a little surprised to meet people I know in this mega city, and it happened again at 433 East 6th Street at Death & Co, where I met Avery Glasser who had judged a cocktail contest with me in San Francisco a few months ago and is now living in Manhattan with his wife. It turns out Avery is one of the geeks behind Bittermen's Cocktail Bitters. So it wasn't long before I was drinking a 6th Street Swizzle made with some of Avery's bitters. I won't post the recipe because I'll surely get it wrong and disappoint Avery and Phil, who made the drink. But suffice it to say that I'll be back for another 6th Street Swizzle.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

Ed - it was great bumping into you as well. I think the last time we had a cocktail together was back in March at the Matusalem competition at Rye in San Francisco. Who would have thought that we would bump into each other months later on the other side of the continent!

Janet and I have been putting the Neisson Negroni through its paces with Joaquin over the past week - and the current recipe is working extremely well
Neisson Negroni
1 oz Neisson Reserve
1 oz Campari
3/4 oz Carpano Antica Vermouth
1 dash Xocolatl Mole Bitters
Stir and serve up in a cocktail glass
Garnish with a fresh wide orange peel
Hopefully Phil was able to pass along the bottles of bitters while you were both in New Orleans so you don't have to wait to return to Death and Co. to try one.

See you the next time you're in NY!
