For (Indonesian) Fashion's Sake


I'm in Indonesia again, people. I was just mixing up a few drinks the other night at Blü Martini for a fashion show featuring the work of local designer Kleting Titis Wigati. Yeah, I know her name's a mouthful, but besides designing cool clothes, she has over a few thousand followers on Twitter, which is a few thousand more than you have, so stop snickering. They wanted something unique, a bit different—and so I gave it to them.

Here's one of them. I call it BB-Me and it's a twist on a madras—made with vodka, cranberry and orange marmalade mixed with crushed ice, specked with cranberry gelée, and finished with a carbon dioxide rosemary fog.

I'm off to Viet Nam next, but wherever you happen to be sipping, do it slowly. Enjoy.

About this blog:

This weblog is intended for responsible legal drinkers of legal drinking age and older.   It's about cocktails.  It's about spirits. It's about mixing things up, pouring them into a martini glass or over the rocks, and taking a sip.  Sipping slowly.  If you're under the drinking age of your locale or simply not interested in consuming alcohol, please take a look at my non-alcoholic blog: sip.  In the meantime, please be rational when it comes to drinking.  It's simple, really.  Just sip slowly.
