Here at B/SPOKE, we like to celebrate our accomplishments (and our favorite holidays, and our favorite people). Celebrating usually means a party, and a party isn’t a party without a signature drink. If you’ve attended any of our studio parties over the past two years, there’s a chance you’ve sipped a B/SPOKE original cocktail handcrafted by Alejandro Alvarez of The Event Society.
Alejandro is not only a great friend and dedicated member of the B/SPOKE community, he’s also an the event planning and mixologist extraordinaire behind many of our studio events and many major events around the city. Alejandro is the recipient of several awards and accolades, including GQ Magazine’s “Most Inspired Bartenders”, Stuff Magazine’s “Boston’s Sexiest 2011” award and 42 Below’s “World Cup Champion”. He’s agreed to share the recipe behind one of the signature cocktails he’s crafted for our events, The B/SPOKE 75:
What you’ll need:
- 3 parts Hendrick’s Gin (2.25 oz)
- 1 parts St. Germain (.75 oz)
- Splash of fresh lemon juice
- Champagne to taste
- Cocktail shaker
- Champagne flute
Shake gin, St. Germain and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker with ice.
Once thoroughly shaken, strain into a champagne flute and top with champagne to taste.
Alejandro is gearing up for a big summer and fall with B/SPOKE, so be on the lookout for our next event. Can’t wait for the next B/SPOKE party? Feel free to reach out to Alejandro about planning your next corporate or non-profit event at firstname.lastname@example.org.
