Behind #MayorThurston's campaign cocktail at @DeliNYC: The #WhiskeyThurston


Last Wednesday evening, my friend and opponent, Jennifer @Magnolfi, and I met on neutral ground at Village Tart to discuss the issues in the campaign and to come together around a few initiatives for the betterment of Delicatessen.

I was impressed to discover that the Magnolfi Campaign commissioned a custom, Prosecco-based cocktail which is rather refreshing in these high temperature times.

Not to be outdone, I worked with longtime Delicatessen bartender Barry to conjure up a drink for the Thurston campaign. We call it The Whiskey Thurston

It's:

Maker's Mark
Honey
Lemon juice
flaming orange zest. yes, flaming.

Cause my campaign is HOT!

We're teaching the other bartenders to make it, though they may all have their own interpretation, which is great and wonderful
