Hot! Cocktail Lovers Gathered to Toast Brian Van Flandern

Assouline Publishing Celebrates Its New Book "Craft Cocktails" In The Presence Of Famous Mixologist And Author Brian van Flandern At Pegu Club

If you know anything about us, you’ll know that we love a good glass of champagne and a well crafted cocktail– we even have a weekly feature devoted to the art form. So, when we received an invitation to attend a party for three-star Michelin rated mixoligists Brian Van Flandern’s newest book Craft Cocktails we jumped at the chance.

At the celebration, which was held last night at Pegu Club, bartenders, cocktail aficionados, and other media types gathered for a low-key evening naturally including delicious cocktails featuring Cointreau. In attendance, were Cointreau Brand Ambassador, Kyle Ford and Crown Bartender, James Menite who mixed up some delicious libations including The Cointreau Rickey, The Secret Garden and The Standard (recipes below) and even  Craft Cocktails publisher Prosper Assouline.
