Birthday Dedication du Nuit

Dedicated to the Vessel of his Legacy

Recently I spoke with friend that wanted to honor is partner, his friend, and the vessel of his legacy with a Drink du Nuit that captured her spirit for life, her zest for fun, and the beautifully complex simplicity of her continued love. Thinking about his intentions and searching for the right cocktail… I realized that Ms. A is a person that is about sharing joys with friends and family and never being so simple as to be put into one box (or one look for that matter)…so given that her party is a themed indoor pool party, and that she is always about bringing groups of people together in new and fun ways… I present to you, for your imbibing pleasure, and as tribute from Mr. C, a birthday mini-series of Drink du Nuit
