When it comes to alcohol, cocktails are in a class all of their own. Tony establishments usually come with a signature cocktail as well as a cocktail menu, a good cocktail maker is known as a mixologist and most people know that James Bond likes his martini “shaken, not stirred.” Cocktail history buffs can visit The Museum of the American Cocktail in (where else?) New Orleans and learn about theManhattan, the Moscow Mule and the Mai Tai. And for a mere $22 a drink, one can now “drink” their spa treatment being offered up at fashionable club in (where else?) New York. The claim is that the “Teddy Bear”, for example, with strawberry, cucumber, lime and a shot of vodka, will work on your clogged pores, while Raspberry Pepper Heat with tequila will help “diminish fine lines”. For me, I’m with the sceptical dermatologist quoted in the article who suggests that restraint at the bar is better for your skin than sucking back alcohol with your antioxidants.
