The Opening Act

OpeningAct_0654 Happy Labor Day Weekend! While the calendar might say there are still a few weeks left of summer, the city returns to its usual impossibly hectic pace post-Labor day weekend. So if you are also hanging onto these last few warm summer days, you might as well have a phenomenal cocktail in hand, right?  This cocktail features Domaine de Canton, a ginger liqueur, who exhibited this particular cocktail at the 2011 FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen. I would patiently wait until the last few minutes of the afternoon Grand Tasting, then bolt straight to their table for a taste of this delicious drink. Shake up a few this weekend and kiss the lazy summer days good-bye.
