Recap: Fashion's Night Out with Macy's

New York City was alive and kicking on Friday night with the second year of Fashion's Night Out. I held down the fort at The Cellar in Macy's Herald Square, where I shared some of my tips for entertaining at home and signed some copies of "New American Table".

It was awesome to see everyone out on the town, dressed to the nines, and I loved getting to meet those of you who joined me at the store. We all nibbled on some sliders and green curry shrimp, and folks got to try the "Uptown Girl". This refreshingly fruity drink is the kind of cocktail you can expect to find on Red Rooster's menu. Here's the recipe so you can try it out at home yourselves:

1 oz Vodka 1/2  oz Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur 1/2 oz Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice Pomegranate seeds Sparkling water or tonic

Combine the vodka, ginger liqueur and grapefruit juice. Muddle a few pomegranate seeds and add to the vodka mix. Strain and pour over ice in a double rocks glass.  Top with club soda or tonic. Garnish with a grapefruit peel.
