Another photo assignment during my recent week in Paris: Le Mary Celeste!
Le Mary Celeste, or LMC for short, holds a special place in my heart. I attended the Brooklyn Brewery launch party there with a huge group of friends, which involved copious amounts of free craft beer. (Tests indicate that free craft beer will win you my friendship and admiration approximately 100% of the time.)
I also had the opportunity to interview chef Haan a few months ago, and I’ve got to say that his food just keeps getting better and better — not to say that I didn’t miss that incredible cauliflower dish they had on the menu a while back this time.

Can I be honest with you, reader? I think I might have overdone it a bit last week.
I was shooting at some of my favorite bars in Paris. Which meant, of course, that I was drinking a lot of cocktails. How could I not? Expertly mixed by charming barkeeps with far more sophisticated palates than mine, bourbon and rye and gin was coursing through my veins nightly.
Still, there is something to be said for a simple, seasonal drink that you can make at home without the assistance of an expert — and this one is sneaking it at juuust the very end of peach season.
With a little egg white for that foamy cap, and some basil for fresh herbiness, this cocktail begs to be paired with a hearty brunch.
