Cocktail and Cocktailor


Barrelhouse Flat‘s Stephen Cole created the Bitter Giuseppe and mixed one for Imbibe magazine.  Outtakes + available light = fun with GIFs!  (in some browsers you need to click on the above image to get to the animated version)

I photographed Stephen putting together the Bitter Giuseppe’s

2 oz. Cynar

1 oz. sweet vermouth

1/4 oz. fresh lemon juice

6 dashes Regans’ Orange Bitters

A lemon peel garnish

And that beautiful, beautiful ice.

The whole is, as you might guess,  greater than the sum of its parts.

One of the portraits and more of the process:







Hard to resist making another GIF:


and the drink, of course:
