The Gintleman cocktail.

Dorothy Parker was famous for her sharp wisecracks, hard-as-nails criticism, as well as for being one of the founding members of the Algonquin Round Table, the ultimate who’s who of scribes in New York City. While she ultimately grew dependent on alcohol, Parker would forever embody the independent woman of the ‘20s who wasn’t afraid to put men in their place with her quick wit and talent for the written word. Today, patrons can pay tribute to Parker and her Round Table at Pounds & Ounces in New York City, where they highlight the Gintlemen. Naturally, it features a wonderfully refreshing recipe capturing the reckless indulgence of her legendary era.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
