The Citymeals-on-Wheels Crème de la Crème is a charity event where guests come to sample fare created by star chefs as a tribute to food legends. For those of you attending the event tonight at Rockefeller Center, it looks like that some cocktail legends will get tribute as well.
Don Lee of PDT called me early this morning to tell me about his tribute I got a call from Don Lee early this morning saying that his tribute to Dale DeGroff and Toby Cecchini is going to be a pastry versino of a Cosmopolitan. Yes, "Le Croissmo" if you will. The Cosmo was the drink of choice, since "Dale and Toby popularized the Cosmo even before 'Sex and the City,'" Don explained.
It's made with Stolichnaya's blackberry flavored vodka, a croissant and brown butter-infused vodka, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup and creme de cassis.
