Popular speakeasy-style bar PDT (Please Don't Tell) has come out with a cocktail book with 304 cocktail recipes and mixologist Jim Meehan's bartender secrets. Now, you don't have to make a trip to East Village, stand in a hidden phone booth and wait around to enjoy a quality cocktail. Shake up your own Benton's Old Fashioned right at home. Ooh, please do tell!
We celebrated the launch of the book "The PDT Cocktail Book: The Complete Bartender's Guide from the Celebrated Speakeasy" with Mr. Meehan and other top mixologists in the city at Astor Center on Wednesday night. Sipping on a few select cocktails from the book and noshing on Crif Dogs, including Wylie Dufresne's Wylie dog (a deep-fried frankfurter with WD-50's fried mayonnaise on top), it was quite an indulgent night and a great celebration. Wylie himself was also in attendance.
Cocktail hour at home just got a little better.
