My husband’s uncle had a big birthday bash at Red Rooster in Harlem over the weekend and we were so sad to miss it! In his honor, I created an illustration with a recipe for his favorite drink, the Fritz. Equal parts gin and vodka with cocktail onions- this guy doesn’t mess around! The drink recipe was displayed on the bar for guests to try and printed out as a party favor. Red Rooster is such a fun New York spot. I have had the honor of photographing Marcus and his delicious food a few times. Above is a photo I took of him at The James Beard House back in 2009. Cheers and Happy Birthday, Uncle Fred!
