NY (October 9, 2002) - How does one spice up that dusty drinks repertoire? StarChefs suggests the perfect forum - an English drinks party. Not unlike its pig-in-a-blanket serving cousin the cocktail party, the finest English drinks party includes hip music, haute hors d'oeuvres and a stellar cocktail menu. StarChefs’ article, “Drinks Party”, features four easy-to-create drinks from restaurants and bars that know how to shake things up for the holidays. Party-goers will emulate these recipes for seasons to come.
Move over Cosmo. Lychee Martini may sound strange to many, but this sweet, fragrant drink is sure to convert all those weary of the foreign fruit. Beth Cleary, Bar Manager/Wine Buyer at Pigalle, Boston's acclaimed Parisian restaurant, introduced us to this chic new drink.
Apple Martini. It’s been done before, but rarely does one find such a pure and natural take on this green goddess of a drink. Edwin Santana, bartender and drink designer extraordinaire is behind the bar at Masat in Manhattan.
Tuscan Lemonade beautifully unifies 43 flavors of Citrus, herbs, and spices. This sophisticated cocktail is the inspiration of Tommy Benedict, Bar Manager at the renowned Italian Trattoria, Beppe in New York.
Hawaiian Martini. The next best thing to Hawaii in December. Famed “Hawaiian fusion” chef Roy Yamaguchi infuses liquor with pineapple, days in advance. Make it by the pitcher and leave the pouring to your guests.
