Our friends over at ShakeStir have asked the nearly 2,000 (and growing) bartenders in their community to submit signature cocktail recipes for potential coverage on The Daily Meal. Each Wednesday**, the drink that snags the most 5-star ratings (according to his or her ShakeStir peers) will be featured on The Daily Meal — along with a recipe, photo, and link to the selected bartender's profile — as part of the new weekly "Hump Day" Cocktail series. This week's winner is Frederic Yarm from Sommerville, Mass., and his creation, the Tanglin Club. And what is it a riff off of? The very famous Pegu Club. Says Yarm about the drink, it's "named after another prominent gentleman's social club started in the 19th century to serve the British — namely the Tanglin Club in Singapore." Thanks to our bartender friends at ShakeStir for contributing, and stay tuned for more Hump Day Cocktails! **We know it's a bit late, but we all could use a drink after the Wednesday holiday!

the young american
David Bowie once said, “I am an instant star. Just add water and stir,” so as NYC prepares to celebrate his life and music at this week's tribute concerts, The Wayfarer is taking its cue from Bowie's own words and stirring up original, handcrafted cocktails inspired by the star's catalog of music. Available at The Wayfarer through Monday (April 4, 2016) is a special menu of five Bowie-inspired cocktails: The Diamond Dog, The Ziggy Stardust, The Tin Machine, The Heathen and The Yo​ung American cocktails (each $14) at both the restaurant’s main bar and upstairs lounge. In memory of Bowie, $2 from every Bowie cocktail served will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. As fans gather to celebrate Bowie for the all-star tribute shows this week, concert-goers and Bowie-admirers can stop at The Wayfarer nearby to raise a toast. And to help get your weekend off on a youthful note, here is the recipe to The Wayfarer's Bowie-inspired "The Young American" cocktail.

One way to send off summer this weekend? With an ice wine from Inniskillin. Made in the Niagara peninsula, these wines made from frozen grape clusters will give you a sweet chill. Naturally, in a cocktail, these ice wines add an intense flavor, like in this Inn & Juice cocktail made with aged rum and pineapple.
