This Sunday July 26 at The Alembic in San Francisco is the monthly Savoy Cocktail Book Night where the book is the menu. Pick a drink and the bartenders will do their best to make it. This event grew out of Erik Ellestad's Savoy Project, in which he's making all the recipes in the book in order.
One recipe that you simply must try is the Milk Punch that Ellestad has been making. If you didn't know it was milk in the drink it might take a while to figure out what the unique flavor and texture was. It's amazing and delicious. Come down and try it.
