Winter Sports Thanks You

Thanks so much to everyone who came out last night!  It was an amazing crowd, and we all had a great time.  Soon soon soon Josh will post his (and Seth's) incredible pictures from last night, but until then, I at least wanted to put the full menu up.  For all of your holiday liquor needs.  (We all have those, right?? Or am I the only one?)

The Gilded Age.  A generous shot of Lillet tempered by a bit of Chartreuse and balanced with Bubbles and some muddled mint, on the rocks.

The Savant.  Cynar, Gin, Mint, and Tarragon shaken with ice, topped with Prosecco and an Orange twist.  Served like champagne.

Missing Persons.  This was easily the drink of the night, according to Ted and Josh.  A deceptive mixture of Cointreau,  Sake, Bubbles, and Soda, with a bit of Mint and Lime thrown in for good measure.  Served on the rocks.

Conservatory.  Ransom Gin, Cointreau, a dash of Cognac, Lemon, and a Cinnamon Stick.  And hot, like a well-travelled tottie, you know?

Sara also somehow found the time to invent a new drink during the party.. those here for the second half may've gotten to taste the aptly named Fucking Fantastic.  If you didn't, don't worry, I have a hunch it will fill the shoes left by last year's French Ginger, and return again and again as our off-menu drink of choice.

Many thanks to everyone who made it out last night!  We'll see you in 2011.  Twenty Eleven.

Your stylish presence is requested.

Tonight's menu aint quite done yet, but we have some amazing drinks that only lack... drinkers.  No, they just lack names.  So here are some unnamed descriptions to whet your palette.

The Gilded Age.  Unknown Pleasures.   Lillet cut with Chartreuse and Boodles Gin.  Served with a little bit of Mint.
????????  Like an Alchemist's Daughter.  Cynar mixes with Champagne, Mint, Tarragon, and a twist of Orange for some black magic
???????  Refreshing but deceptively strong.. Champagne amended with cointreau and sake.
???????  It's a Hot House.  Ransom Gin, Cointreau, and a dash of Cognac come together with lemon and a cinnamon stick, served hot!

Season II, Episode II

Saturday, December 11.

This season's second installment of Winter Sports commences this Saturday night at 9.   Hope to see you all there! 

I'll be posting the menu soon!  This month we've got a return to Lillet, a little love letter to Cynar, a hot Ransom drink, and a timemachine to the summer with Cointreau, lime, and mint.  Details soon!
