If you’re promoting a book of cocktail recipes — do it like Tenaya Darlington and throw a party. The food and drink expert hosted a decadent four-course meal at Russet in Center City to accompany selections from her latest book, “The New Cocktail Hour.”
While attendees sipped and nibbled, Darlington discussed the story behind each of the cocktails, which included their historical significance.
The book, which she co-wrote with her brother Andre over Skype, allows readers to drink their way through history, as it’s set up chronologically. From World War I to the Roaring Twenties, nearly every decade is celebrated through libations.
