it was for art. carter gallery around the corner hosted my friend sarah baker's show le fan fan and whose idea was to have cocktail in the finishing party and as i always like to be involved in interesting and alternative happenings, i naturally said yes!
from my previous experience with bright light bright light event, i decided not to go overboard with stock and use my existing, as i am getting the hang of it and have plenty left; business woman, innit? more like little money, plenty of brains! ha!
the list contained gin daiquiri, which, as i have said before, an exquisite drink and a total joy to make, ginger mai tai, with ginger sirop i wanted to get rid of, giving it a delicious kick for the sweet tooth and perfect manhattan, because i knew a lot of folk, sarah included, were bourbon drinkers!

i was listening to bittersweet symphony for the second time as i was clearing up, which put a smile in my face, for reasons all mine to relish...
