Mad Men Monday - The Remedy & Delmonicos

I realize it's Tuesday, but there was no way I was posting on the third (and best) day of a 3 day weekend. What a kickoff to summer! And what an episode of Mad Men.
Oh Joan! Oh Peggy! No she didn't. Oh, yes she did.

What I wore:

dress: LOFT
cuff: Tory Burch - wide lucite
earrings: Amrita Singh - east hampton earring
sunnies: LOFT
wedges: Target - teresa espadrille
ring: Banana Republic

What we drank:
The Remedy

My favorite cocktail from Eleven Madison Park was a perfect fit to a summer Mad Men garden party. Can't make it to NYC? Pick up a copy of Danny Meyer's book Mix, Shake, Stir and have all his best cocktail recipes on hand.

The Remedy - the key to this drink is the delightful honey-ginger simple syrup. Easy to make and keeps in the fridge for about a month. Use in this cocktail or add to iced tea or club soda for a refreshing sipper.

Honey-Ginger Syrup
Add 1 cup honey and 1 cup water to a saucepan and bring to boil. 
Remove from heat and stir in 3 tablespoons chopped ginger. Let cool.
Strain out ginger and chill.

The Remedy 
Fill a cocktail shaker w/ ice. Add:
1 1/2 oz gin or vodka
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
3/4 oz ginger-honey syrup
shake and strain into ice-filled glass.

On the menu:
Delmonico steak, grilled romaine salad (w/ bacon, onion, blue cheese and a strawberry balsamic dressing) and grilled lemon asparagus. My goal was not to cook in the house. Everything had to be grill-worthy. score!

Looks like a tasty feast and you were fab as always!

Kimberly said...

Thanks :) I totally stole the grilled salad from Table 45. It might be Chris' new fave. Just a few more days till the Birthday!!

Darling, you (and that salad!) look delish!

Best. Shoes. Ever. They scream summer to me. Heading to Target at lunch...

Kimberly said...

These were a huge surprise.
I never buy shoes from Target as I wear lots of heels and if they're cheap they're never comfortable. But these are a dream! No pinching or rubbing. I've worn them for hours downtown and this weekend all over the grass and my feet were happy.

Mom said...

I agreed about the shoes! If I were younger...I would be wearing them! Also loved the earrings! How about a recipe for the grilled salad? Your salads are always delicious and I can never duplicate them.

Kimberly said...

easiest salad ever!
Halve a romaine heart (keep the bottom stem intact!) then drizzle a little olive oil and grill it, cut side down, for about 3-5 mins.

Top w/ crumbled bacon, blue cheese and red onion and drizzle your fave dressing.

I do not think that meal could look any more delicious!

the Remedy sound DELICIOUS. This week's episode made my head explode at least a million times. Such a great show!

Kimberly said...

and only 2 episodes left! I need more than a 13 ep. season.

Amy said...

Amazing! I bought shoes at Target once. I returned them within 24 hours because they broke. I'm glad to know these are above expectations.

Christina said...

I was disappointed with Joan's decision. Love the white dress with colorful pops of accessories!

Kimberly said...

Me too! I might still be in denial.
