I have had many requests to post this favorite from the April 2008 MIXOLOGY MONTHLY. I created it in honor of the Mills/McCartney divorce. Take a look and please comment. Yes, I know it's irreverent, that's the idea!

The latest issue of CHEERS Magazine, September 2008, features an article by Martha Russis entitled "One Size Doesn't Fit All, The right glass can make or break a quality drink" on page 44. I was interviewed for the "COCKTAIL CLASSICS" segment. Please check it out. As many of you know, I believe that the proper glass form is important when serving classic cocktails. There is good reason they had stood the test of time. Newer styles of libations give room for play and creativity. Practicality and appropriateness should not take a back seat to inventiveness.

Wonderful friends of mine, Jen & Marc, were married this summer in NYC. They hosted a casual rooftop BBQ celebration in honor of their nuptials. I had the pleasure of creating a Signature Wedding Cocktail for the event. When asked what they would like the drink to represent, they said "Fergus, of course!" Fergus is their adorable and very headstrong pup. So, Here's "Fergus in the Grass."
The cocktail featured some great summer flavors, including muddled fresh Kiwi fruit. The garnish was a hand-dipped chocolate & chocolate chip decorated marshmallow; an edible FERGUS head.
Congrats Jen, Marc & Fergus!

Here's an example of my e-newsletter "Mixology Monthly". This one featured "The Three Candidates" (Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama & John McCain) before the Primary Election. Coming in October: "The Veeps".
