A BEVERAGE BON VIVANT

A short-story writer, poet, dramatist and literary trail-blazer, Dorothy Parker's quirky remarks (and crass opinions) have helped to influence generations of women who have followed in her footsteps. To celebrate her birthday, some of New York City's top female mixologists have created a menu of fanciful gin cocktails, fit for the gin-love wisecracker herself.

The list of libations — all based on the formidable Dorothy Parker American Gin (distilled right here in NYC @NYDistilling) — are available from August 22nd through August 28th exclusively at Center Bar, Chef Michael Lomonaco’s ode to the classic cocktail lounge and bar overlooking Manhattan’s Columbus Circle.

So grab a cocktail, raise your glass and toast to the legendary literary icon!
