From The Godfather of Go Go: Go Go Rickey, to Major Bailey’s Bramble, and Sapphire Buck, the Bombay Sapphire cocktail recipes were on full display.
The celebration in Washington DC was a continuation of activities in New York, when Jimmy Jenkins and Ivan Alifan, finalists in the Annual Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series, unveiled their solo shows at the Allouche Gallery. As with other events of this nature, drinks based on Bombay Sapphire cocktail recipes put guests in the mood. Crafted cocktails like Mumbai ’75 and Self-Deception set the mood for the night.
