Thanks to everyone who came out and supported our 2011 Literary Debutante Ball. We had a blast celebrating the first books of our five debutantes and honoring Dani Shapiro with the One Story Mentorship Award. Volunteers made sure guests had a drink in their hand as they rode the unique elevator at the Invisible Dog Art Center, artists lined the walls with beautiful work for our silent auction, Isaiah Sheffer from Selected Shorts kept everyone laughing as our MC, and Lapis Luna had everyone on the dance floor. Couldn’t make it to the benefit? Mix yourself a “Six Poisons” cocktail and click through the pictures below. After a sip or two, you’ll feel like you’re partying with us Brooklyn!
The Six Poisons Cocktail: 2 oz. BULLDOG Gin, 2 1/2 oz. Cranberry Juice, 1/2 oz. Orange Juice, Ice, Orange Slice for Garnish, Club soda: Shake first three ingredients with ice. Strain into an ice-filled cocktail glass. Garnish with orange slice. Top with a splash of club soda.
