Chinoiserie Cocktails

Maybe it's just me, but all that drinking on Mad Men has me in the mood for cocktails, and since this blog is passionately devoted to Chinoiserie, what about some Chinoiserie cocktails? If you have never indulged in this Yazi ginger vodka, allow me to introduce you. Yazi is made from ancient aphrodisiacs using four different species of ginger, plus lemon, orange, cayenne, and red pepper. It is named after a Chinese Dragon, a symbol of strength and confidence. The dragon is etched on this show stoppingly beautiful bottle. Enjoy it on the rocks or in one of these recipes. And if you missed this post of mine on Domaine de Canton ginger liquer, please click here. You will want to display both these gorgeous Chinoiserie bottles on your Chinoiserie bar-here are some great looks to get you inspired. Cheers or "gan bei."

Love Domain de Canton! It is a must for the Chinoiserie bar. It is a really versatile liqueur. Makes the best Negroni.

My local liquor store has ordered a case of the Yazi for me. It's going to be holiday gifts for my girlfriends. I just love the bottle. You find some of the coolest stuff!
