Macao Trading Company, NYC –
Dushan Zaric, the cocktail mastermind behind Macao Trading Company in NYC (as well as Employees Only), was our cocktail muse. It was an absolute privilege to be the recepient of his creative and intelligent cocktail wisdom, as well as his considerable charisma.
The seminar was titled “Handcrafted Cocktails – How to Create Homemade Ingredients, Syrups, Cordials, Infusions & Accompaniments”. POM, the pomegranate juice company, was the sponsor and provided great swag. It was a good thing my recent lesson of learning not to polish off the contents of every glass handed to me, was fresh in my memory. Because it was game on – five amazing craft cocktails were shared with each of us, along with tastes of all the handmade syrups, infusions, bitters and cordials. Each one a truly memorable combination of flavors.
I learned it is quite challenging to take decent pictures in a dark bar while I am drinking! My daughter-in-law Eileen did an admirable job of snapping this photo of Dushan and me afterwards. What a very nice man.
