Recession Proof Mixology at Ten 01 - Tonight

Things I like:

1. The kind of sandwiches that come wrapped in cellophane. For instance, you can get a turkey sandwich with cranberry sauce, wrapped in cellophane, from the Elephants on Wheels window outside of Macy's.

2. Reading Kelley Swenson's cocktail menus. This list of tonight's Recession Proof Mixology drinks at Ten 01 is the most interesting thing I have read so far today. Also interesting is the fact that all of these cocktails are $5 at Ten 01 from 5:30 to 8pm. That is three hours from now.

Aperol Smash
Hand pressed green grapes and fresh local mint kissed with Medoyeff Vodka, Aperol Italian bitters, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and a touch of Simple Syrup to balance.

The Viking of Sixth Avenue

Hand pressed hothouse cucumber bathes in an ocean of Krogstad Aquavit, Yellow Chartreuse, freshly squeezed lime juice. Finished with an insightful whiskey whisper

The Jimmy Blanc Cocktail

Aviation Gin stirred swiftly clockwise for exactly 20 seconds with accents of Lillet Blanc and Dubonnet Rouge Made complete with a single magical dash of Regan’s No.6 Orange Bitters

The Last Word Cocktails

Aviation Gin, Green Chartreuse, Maraska Maraschino Liqueur, and freshly squeezed lime juice.

The Florodora

Hand pressed fresh raspberries drowned in Aviation Gin, freshly squeezed lime juice, ginger ale, and Angostura Bitters
