Cheers to all of us, we made it, it’s Friday! My fizz-spiration (if you will) hit me while my wanderlust was satisfied at Edible Manhattan’s Edible Escape last week. As I strolled through the offerings of locavore purveyors, I noticed somebody had put baby in the corner. Hudson Baby Bourbon. A single grain bourbon made from 100% New York corn, the first bourbon whiskey to be distilled in New York. Her smooth consistency is calm, convivial and warm all the way down. I’ll be pairing it with this baby, a printed leather midi dress, just as fluent in texture.
A few days later, my bourbon luck multiplied when a friend suggested Char No. 4 as a meeting spot for dinner. There is no way I can say Salute without giving you a double dose of Frocks and Fizz this Friday.

A look above the bar reveals an homage to the practice of aging bourbon in barrels. The light coming from the cylindrical pendants highlights a perfection of an aged whiskey spirit and complements a frock as caramelized and sweet as bourbon itself.
