When an aerialist is pouring drinks you know it's a good party. This proved to be true at the launch of Chambord Vodka at the new Gansevoort Park Avenue. It's an interesting brand extension from a spirit dedicated to flavor v. vodka, a distinction that the brand manager as quick to make. I used the raspberry flavored spirit as a foundational element in a fall sangria that I made when entertaining several friends recently. It was a hit. Try this holiday season and do pop by the new Gansevoort - if only for the views of the Empire State building. Very cool.

As a Drink Editor I receive a lot of requests for restaurant, bar and nightlife recommendations. So I started a blog to chronicle Chicago's social scene which eventually morphed into New York's drinking and dining scene. After years in Chicago, I'm now a full time resident of NYC, the East Village to be exact. Look forward to sharing the latest and greatest from the wine & spirits world, straight from the Big Apple.
