What we drank:
My favorite cocktail from Eleven Madison Park was a perfect fit to a summer Mad Men garden party. Can't make it to NYC? Pick up a copy of Danny Meyer's book Mix, Shake, Stir and have all his best cocktail recipes on hand.
Add 1 cup honey and 1 cup water to a saucepan and bring to boil.
Remove from heat and stir in 3 tablespoons chopped ginger. Let cool.
Strain out ginger and chill.
Fill a cocktail shaker w/ ice. Add:
1 1/2 oz gin or vodka
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
3/4 oz ginger-honey syrup
shake and strain into ice-filled glass.
On the menu:
Delmonico steak, grilled romaine salad (w/ bacon, onion, blue cheese and a strawberry balsamic dressing) and grilled lemon asparagus. My goal was not to cook in the house. Everything had to be grill-worthy. score!
