Last week we held a private event here at our shop with the lovely people from drink who brought over a full bar and mixed up some delicious cocktails. As you can see above, they were fully enjoyed… maybe a bit too much.

A local spot, located on Congress Street, Drink is more about the art and experience of enjoying an after work cocktail than just “grabbing” a drink. They are infamous for not having a menu but tailoring each beverage to the customer. At drink you will be probed with questions about what alcohol base you like, do you prefer sweet or bitter? Then create your own customized libation just for you. To top it off the quality of every ingredient is top notch. The bitters, extracts, ect. are all homemade. Glasses are kept chilled, at room temperature, or warmed for your liking. Drink has a great speakeasy, prohibition kind of vibe that we dig. It’s a great spot so be sure to check it out. You can hit up their site HERE.

When the chance at bringing in Drink for a party at Stel’s was presented, it was a no brainer. We jumped at the opportunity and the results were fantastic. Everyone has had a great time and it was surely a night to remember. We kept it small and intimate with good friends and colleagues, amazing food, good drinks, and intriguing conversation. Our friend, Mike Russos, made a great playlist of mainly old soul music mixed in with some of our favorite contemporary artists. Misty and John from Drink served up the spirits. My favorite was the Buck, an intoxicating mix of Bourbon, honey, ginger, lemon, and a bit of soda water. At the end of the night the remaining Buck was poured into a silver bowl and we were all handed straws (as you can see from our pictures, we all got into the fun). Our friends pictured are Paul Grant, Liz Natola, Justin Molina, and myself.

Jackie Jenks (above) is pictured with the food table. By the end of the night, that table was empty.

I want to thank John, Misty, and the whole Drink team for extending their hospitality to us here at Stel’s The party was a complete success and they were so accommodating and kind!

Thanks guys!
