‘The Age of Innocence’ Wins Fuzzy Novel Cocktail Contest

Studio 360 hosted a Fuzzy Novel competition this summer, collecting more than 100 cocktails mixed by listeners and named after famous books. Brooklyn’s Brett Elms won the contest with the The Age of Innocence cocktail and Cambridge’s Susan Steinway was the runner up with the My Antonia.

Here’s more about the contest: “The judge of our contest is equal parts lit and liquor: Rosie Schaap is a poet, a bartender, and the ‘Drink‘ columnist for the New York Times Magazine. Her upcoming memoir is Drinking with Men. Kurt Andersen met up with Schaap at Ward III, a bar in lower Manhattan.”

Schaap mixed the drink in the video embedded above. Follow this link to listen to the whole episode. If you are interested, this GalleyCat editor created a variation on The Thin Man martini this summer–try our recipe at this link.
