First popularized in the 1860s, the Manhattan cocktail has become a mainstay of any bartender’s arsenal. It is a local favorite on the German island of Föhr, and among tourists on the island of Manhattan. No matter where you find yourself today, mixing up a classic Manhattan is a good idea.

Classic Manhattan Cocktail

2 Parts American Whiskey
1 Part Sweet Vermouth
1 to 2 Dashes of Angostura Bitters
Orange Peel
Maraschino Cherries

Method: Place ice in a glass. Add the whiskey, vermouth and bitters. Stir gently. Rub the orange peel around the rim of the glass, add 1 to 2 cherries and enjoy.

The Fox Remembers: The Berlin Wall

November 9, 2014 § Leave a comment

wall

 
The Berlin Wall stood for 28 years. From 1961 to 1989 the wall divided Germany and came to be seen as a symbol of the Cold War, fear and political oppression. After months of civil unrest and protests during the summer and fall of 1989, the SED Politburo decreed on November 9th, 1989 that East German refugees, and even private travelers, could freely exit the East. Following this announcement, the wall slowly began to crumble over the ensuing months as mauerspecht (or wall peckers) on both sides of the wall began to chip away at it piece by piece. The first East Germans to push through the overwhelmed SED forces were greeted with champagne and celebration.

The Fox’s Travels: A Walk in New York

Seven days can really move fast in the city. The Fox has been all over the five boroughs, visiting the home of Bret & Jemaineangry dancing in Seward Park and making new feline friends in shops. He’s been eating Halloween doughnuts in Brooklyn and sampling some of New York’s finest bagels & tofu schmear. Picnic-ing and practicing his chess skills in Central Park was a highlight, as well as sampling vegan goodies all over Manhattan, The Fox has had a blast. He even got to spend an awesome Halloween enjoying margaritas, some of Manabu Ikeda’s greatest pieces at the Japan Society and seeing his favorite film, The Nightmare Before Christmas, in theaters again.

Cheers to another great week ahead.
