Michaelle Saintil Works at: Patron, straight up Brittani Octeau Works at: The Abbey Favorite drink: Stoli and soda John MacAndrew Works at: A traditional martini is gin and vermouth, stirred and served with a twist. Along the way, bartenders and patrons both began to see that the cocktail could take on its own role in an evening of dining.
Bartenders began emphasizing gin over vodka. Spirits categories such as rye whiskey began to rise up from obscurity as bartenders combed old bar manuals.
They began to incorporate foreign spirits such as cachaca, pisco and mezcal into their cocktails. A Jamaican liqueur called allspice dram is lovely with aged rum and tiki cocktails, and it was nearly impossible to find in the United States until a couple of years ago. Genever and Old Tom Gin are making comebacks. Very few bars need traditional absinthe service, with the fancy spoons and fountains, but any wellstocked professional bar should have a brand or two of absinthe for the delicious cocktails that require it.
The one thing I want to see more of is aged gin. Germain and rhubarb bitters? I prefer when people call me a bartender. The classic mixologist knows everything from technique proportions, shaking vs. There are so many amazing micro-distilleries, esoteric cordials, unctuous vermouths and boutique bitters out there that have only become available in the last few years.
If you use the tried and true ratios of the classic libations in conjunction with these new products, the possibilities are endless. Recently, some people have even been taking classic cocktails like a Manhattan or Negroni and barrel aging the drink itself, mellowing and blending the flavors of the individual spirits together in the oak barrel.
This really blurs the line between old and new. So many great, new drinks these days are just variations of old recipes. Take the Old Fashioned for example. Traditionally, an Old Fashioned is simply defined as spirit, bitters, sugar and water ice. Ordinarily you see it with some kind of whiskey, Angostura bitters and sugar. But if you want to use mezcal, agave nectar and chocolate mole bitters, go for it. If you switch the Chartreuse for Lillet, the maraschino for Cointreau, lime for lemon, and add a drop of absinthe you have a Corpse Reviver 2.
Twist lemon oils over the drink and drop the twist in. You can also go with whiskey and you have an Improved Whiskey Cocktail. Gomme syrup is rich simple syrup with the addition of gum arabic, which gives it a unique texture.
You can always use 2: A tiki revival is popular in New York and California right now, with new tiki bars popping up in both areas. Find a cocktail you really like and learn how to make the hell out of it at home. My favorite example is always the Sidecar.

In the case of the Sidecar, the base is cognac and the citrus is lemon. Get a good cognac I like Pierre Ferrand and a bottle of Cointreau.
Play with the ratio of cognac to lemon to triple sec. Swap out one brand of cognac for another. Try it with apple brandy instead of cognac. Try Meyer lemon juice instead of regular lemon. Experiment and have fun. This is the Boulevardier.
The Negroni is a classic cocktail comprising equal parts gin, sweet vermouth and Campari bitter liqueur. The Boulevardier is a lesser-known companion to the Negroni, but just as good. I like to think about the basics and then use them as building blocks in creating my final cocktail. I look to the season and the moment for my inspiration. There are countless cocktail recipe books out there that I could follow, but it seems more interesting to me if I let myself go and make new things up.
This past fall, we played around with many house-infused syrups for the drinks, from a cinnamon, black peppercorn and nutmeg syrup to a biscotti syrup made from toasted almonds, star anise and raisins. This upcoming summer and fall, I plan on creating a line of infused spirits made from produce coming from our rooftop garden on the Peerless Building.

There is something fun about these projects, and I know the guests always find interest in things grown and produced locally. Where is my mindset? Zhang, born inremembers watching his grandmother go to the temple and burn incense before a statue of a Buddha. In his adulthood, he went regularly to temples; even after moving to New York inhe studied every weekend with the venerated monk Sheng Yen at the Dharma Drum Mountain Center in Queens and later donated statues to the Chuang Yen Monastery, designed by I.
Pei, in Kent, N. Yet it is his embrace of Tibetan Buddhism, a rare choice in Chinese contemporary art, that distinguishes him from other artists. Ina trip to Tibet irrevocably altered Mr. He said he was amazed by the sight of pilgrims crawling to the site in the middle of traffic, in a seeming clash between modernity and ancient tradition.
He also witnessed the Tibetan Sky burial, in which a monk eviscerates the human corpse, leaving the flesh as food for vultures and smashing the bones into a grainy dust.

The process is supposed to liberate the spirit from the body for peaceful transport into the next life. But if they are dead, they will buy them.
A Hallucinatory Blaze, via Tibetan Ritual. With his career having taken him from Anyang in his native Henan province to Beijing, New York and Shanghai—transforming him from a pessimistic iconoclast in the early s to a Newsweek cover boy in —and his practice ranging from oil painting to performance, photography, sculpture, installation and, most recently, set design, it is difficult to pin down consistent themes in his work.
Born in into a family of workers, Zhang developed an early interest in the arts. His graduation piece was a painting entitled Red Cherrieswhich portrayed a mother peacefully nursing her baby next to a bowl of cherries. After concluding his studies, he remained at Henan University, teaching for four years in the art department.
When he moved into Dashanzhuang—the ramshackle collection of some 65 farmhouses bordering a garbage dump that came to be known as the East Village two years later—there was very little in the fabric of his life that might have predicted the violence and masochism of the performance work that was to establish his career.
He then kneeled to pick up an assortment of plastic baby doll parts, which he reassembled into a complete child before heading into the exhibition hall where he tied the doll to a rope.
Critics have interpreted the performance as a protest against various forms of state-inflicted violence, from forced abortions to the traumas of modern Chinese history. The East Village cast of characters quickly came to include Ai Weiwei, who had just returned to Beijing in after living in the United States for just over a decade. Ai was admired for many reasons: On June 2,Zhang performed 12m2, which remains perhaps the most iconic performance of his career.
Naming the work after his own body weight, Zhang suspended himself with chains—naked and facing the floor—from the ceiling of an East Village home, where he had three doctors from a nearby hospital insert a plastic tube into one of his veins, allowing his blood to splatter and burn on a hot-plate on the ground below.
In addition to the East Village artist community, a wider group of art critics and photojournalists had been invited. Ma began by cooking fish in front of an audience, but instead of eating it, he attached a long plastic hose to his penis, then sucked and blew through the other end.

Both of these nude performances shocked what was otherwise a small community of migrant workers. The fallout from the weekend was severe, and the police arrested Ma and forced others, including Rong Rong and Zhang, to abandon their modest homes and go into hiding. A brutal anonymous attack the day before the 45th anniversary of the state on October 1 put Zhang in hospital with head injuries, and when the shaken East Village community re-emerged months later, its members settled in various locations across the city.
But although this marked the end of the two-year existence of the East Village in its Dashanzhuang incarnation, the community grew as word of its experimental practices reached similarly invested ears elsewhere in Beijing.
Zhang emerged naked on the side of a slow highway in the middle of the night, laughing hysterically. Standing up and falling down until he reached the edge of the road, he jumped down into a corner beneath the highway, where he stuffed handfuls of earthworms into his mouth, and then lay motionless on the ground, allowing them to crawl out before he finally turned over on his side and sobbed.
I felt that I had experienced a state between life and death. Nothing is more precious than being alive.
