You may or may not know or care, but one of the things I write about is drinking for The Reference Council (http://www.thereferencecouncil.com/). The column is called A Drink A Day and is best summed up by saying we are sharing our wide spectrum of enjoyable liquids through our community of international friends. As Humphrey Bogart once said: “The problem with the world is that everyone is a few drinks behind.” So we’re doing our bit.
A few months back we were asked by the kick ass folks at Design Bureau to create a summer drink that is influenced by architecture for their July / August issue. A new drink I had been tinkering with came to mind and the rest is history. The drink is called The Olmsted and is inspired by the great architect behind Central Park, Prospect Park, and the landscaping for the 1893 Worlds Fair in Chicago. The issue is out now and ready for you to buy, so please support this great publication. More info here http://wearedesignbureau.com/. Click the images to enlarge and read!
