This month back in 1817, the New York Stock Exchange formally began. We celebrate by telling you all about its most famous symbol: The Closing Bell… and then retire to one of America’s best-known restaurants to toast the end of a hard day on the floor.
The Exchange Elixir, as mixed by Dave DiCerbo at Les Halles bistro, NYC:
In a shaker add:
- 2 oz. vodka
- 2 oz. St. Germaine
- fresh lemon and lime juice
- dash cranberry juice for color
- dash grapefruit juice
Add ice, shake and strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with lemon peel. Avoid entirely when taking risks with other people’s money.
