One Toyo Mojito, Extra Salt: Announcing Our Cocktail Recipe Contest
March 12, 2012
The Architectural Digest Home Design Show is a mere 10 days away, and as Pier 94 ramps up for the March 22 opening, we’re ramping up too – for our opening cocktail party. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating architecture and interior design with a special cocktail event whose menu will be decided by none other than… you.
That’s right: we’ve got the liquor (thanks to sponsors Effen Vodka and La Crema), now all we need are some architect-built (or perhaps, architecture-pun-inspired) drink recipes. Are you well-known amongst friends for making a mean Herzog and de Bourbon or an excellent Delirious Manhattan? What about a Gin and Tectonics or a Juergen Bomb? We’re just spitballing here, but our recipe for a Bahama Zaha is as follows:
- 1/2 ounce rum
- 1/2 ounce coconut-flavored rum
- 1/2 ounce grenadine syrup
- 1 ounce orange juice
- 1 and 1/2 ounce pineapple juice
- 1 cup of crushed ice
Blend together all the ingredients until they’ve turned a nice grapefruit color. Garnish with a piece of pineapple that looks like it was modeled in Maya.
Email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration. We’ll pick two, and serve them at the AD Show opening party. Which reminds us: you need to RSVP to attend. Entrance is free through March 15th, after which a small fee will be charged. Registration is essential, so please click here to register.
Also! The next day, Architizer founder Marc Kushner will be leading a panel of architects including Galia Solomonoff (Solomonoff Architecture Studio) and Joel Sanders (Joel Sanders Architect) in discussion on the division between interior design and architecture. The discussion will take place at 4pm on March 23rd, so come by to check it out after you’ve had sufficient time to recover from the night before.
Once again, all these festivities are contigent on registration, so go!
