Max Wanger.

Everyone is crushing on Max Wanger. And with very good reason – his engagement and wedding photography is stellar. As in super galactic stellar. As in I’d rather spend $100 on my non-existent wedding and a million on a photo shoot with him. Yeah, that kind of great.


Mad Props: April.


On the Rocks: Clover Club Cocktail.

The Clover Club Cocktail has quite a history dating back to at least 1911 and possibly before. Anything that’s hung around for that long has an obvious reason! Make sure to check out the other variations of this cocktail as well – The Royal Clover Club and Bitter Clover Leaf.

– Juice of 1/2 lemon or lime
– 1/3 grenadine (1 part)
– 2/3 dry gin (2 parts)
– 1 egg white

Place all ingredients in cocktail shaker along with ice. Shake well and strain into glass.

Two quick notes on the use of raw eggs in cocktails: 1) There’s nothing to worry about as long as you use fresh eggs from a reliable source. I used fresh organic brown eggs. 2) When using egg whites in cocktail recipes, I prefer to do a dry shake (shake egg white by itself) first for 30 seconds to 1 minute in order to really froth the white, before adding the remaining ingredients and shaking again.
