Paying homage to the classic gentlemen, Rémy Martin, a cognac best known as an after dinner drink, reinvented their time honored spirit and incorporated it into fine cocktails. Gone are the days when Rémy is sipped neat post-dinner - it's a lovely base spirit that can be and should be used as the foundation of a classic cocktail (Sidecar or Manhattan). I'm currently obsessed with the Gold Rush (Remy 1738 Accord Royal, Lime Juice and Honey). The intimate seated dinner at the Lambs Club was an exclusive tasting of Rémy Martin's 1738 Accord Royal hosted by Mad Men's Vincent Kartheiser and the show's Emmy Award-Winning Costume Designer, Janie Bryant. Loved it. For additional deets on the evening check out the recap's from Blackbook and the Wall Street Journal.

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.
