NEW YORK FOLLOWED BY MOSCOW FOLLOWED BY DUBAI. THEN I SHOULD CALM DOWN FOR THE RITZ OPENING
Ambassador Rivken and Susan Tolson were present entertaining "The Friends of the Louvre" for a marvellous cocktail and dinner. The weather was super and so was the event.
It was the first official "sorti" of my prototype shaker.
A shaker that has been designed from the interieur to keep the ice moving as opposed to starting and stopping, starting and stopping.
I made for Ambassadeur Rivkin a special Martin with it. You are going to say shaken not stirred but as the inside of the shaker is egg shaped the ice can turn and does the same action as a mixing glass. I wanted to call it the Rivkin Martini but I never had an opportunity to ask Ambassador Rivkin. Peut etre un jour.
