The Year of The Cocktail
So Francis had a great time in New York with dinner at Hearth and Cocktails at Angel's Share. Mark on the other hand was hoping to have a nice dinner with his lovely wife Jen. Staying close to home (what with four kids) Mark and Jen went to a nearby (nameless) Italian restaurant where:
They were not seated for their 9 pm reservation until 9:55 (no apologies or explanation),
Mark was seated in the aisle where he was repeated kicked by passing waiters (no apologies), and
They were presented the bill with the appetizers and wine they had and paid for at the bar added a second time to their dinner check (no apologies).
Sounds like Francis had the more enjoyable evening!

Trends in cocktails include making your own ingredients such as syrups, tinctures and infused spirits; and using herbs in cocktails such as a gin & tonic with tarragon.
