Twist is a part of Mike's on the Avenue, a hip, Asian-Cajun fusion type restaurant, but the night was not about food. The wedding was not only a sweet moment of doggy-I-do's, it was the culmination of several events benefiting the Southern Animal Foundation. In fact, there were "Top Dog" awards given to the winning celebrity bartenders who raised the most money at their turns behind the bar. One of the winners happened to be my good friend and local "Food Goddess" Lorin Gaudin...congratulations Lorin!
The second libation was not so generous, but quite delicious, a little concoction they dub The St. Mojo. Obviously spinning off of the favorite summertime cocktail, the Mojito, this rendition added St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur (yep, there it is again!) and fresh, muddled ginger along with the usual suspects.
