trade restaurant | boston | cocktail shoot with tenzin

Isn’t that such a beautiful cocktail?  It’s called Norbu Lingka or “Jeweled Park” (scroll down for the recipe). Ahhhhhh……I was back in Boston early this month and was so happy to once again get together with friend and Trade’s head bartender Tenzin Conechok Samdo to to shoot another one of his gorgeous cocktail creations at this fabulous, eclectic restaurant in downtown Boston which is spearheaded by James Beard award-winning Chef Jody Adams of Rialto fame.  Tenzin was recently featured – and well-deserved – in a Zagat article noting the nine up-and-coming bartenders you need to know in Boston.  You can find that article HERE. We started in right away on the cocktails (and wine for Lafe and I as well lol) with a Chamomile Tea Soaked Bulleit Rye Sazerac cocktail that Tenzin whipped up while we were perusing the lunch menu.  Yikes and wow.  Yes, I sipped this baby and I’m not much of a hard liquor drinker.  Whee!  But seriously, the levels of flavors were outstanding.  I moved right on to ordering lunch before any more sips and decided upon the Summer Squash and Zucchini Panzanella with Herbs and Pecorino which of course was delicious.  Then it was down to serious cocktail creating…..

This drink is a “farm to glass” creation…love the edible flowers, chervil, and figs for the garnish.  The edible flowers are from Blue Heron Farm in Lincoln, MA. Russian_Caravan_Tea_blog_board
