Le Blé - Packaging 

(by Yani Arabena & Guille Vizzari

«Le Blé» is a deli restaurant kitchen, homemade and French, with several locations throughout the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. We designed a new line of paper bags and packaging, along with a series of illustrations and lettering that accompany the experience of the place.

L'Arc-en-Ciel (The Rainbow). Jules Cheret French (1836-1932). Original lithograph from “Les Maitre de L'Affiches” series, 1896.

“Cheret’s mastery of colour lithography is evident here; he gets every shade of the ‘Rainbow’ (L'Arc-en-Ciel) for this revue (ballet-pantomime) by using three stones (stone lithography): blue, red and yellow. (Rennert PAI-VIII, 62). The Folies Bergère program consisted mainly of ballet, pantomime and tableaux vivants. 

French studyblrs!!

Bonjour à tous! Je pensais que ce serait chouette de réunir en un post tous les studyblrs français, que j'ai par ailleurs un peu de mal à trouver. Je vais commencer la liste en nommant ceux que je “connais” déjà. N'hésitez pas à rebloguer et modifier la liste en ajoutant d'autres blogs!

Manhattan Punch

  • Whiskey - 1 oz
  • Dry Vermouth - 1 oz
  • Angostura Bitter - 2 dashes
  • Lemon Juice - ¾ oz
  • Superfine Sugar - ½ tbsp
  • Shake everything with ice and strain into an ice-filled medium tumbler. Garnish with fruits.

From George J. Kappeler’s Modern American Drinks.

Without the lemon juice and sugar, this would have been just a Manhattan Cocktail (a Dry Manhattan Cocktail to be specific); and without the vermouth and bitters, this would be plain Whiskey Sour. Kappeler basically combined the two drinks together to make the Manhattan Punch. Like all Sours involving dry vermouth, I kind of like the bitter tartness that came along with the vermouth, adding more complexity and depth.

For the whiskey, choose between bourbon and rye.
