Just below the Coyote Cafe on Water Street is the DEN, a really luxurious bar that is spacious and visually chic - low leather couches, a long, slim electric fireplace above the bar, cool graphics on  charcoal walls, and a savvy bar menu that literally lights up when you open it. How crazy is that? 




 The cocktails (no food) on this snazzy menu are tantalizing, creative and amazing.


Calvin - the very savvy bar keep, suggested that I try the SAMURAI. Intrigued I got my camera  and captured this master cocktail maker at work... 


Glass and shaker at the ready...



The glass gets dusted with  Saigon cinnamon - considered one of the finest  in the world. Rich, pungent and intensely sweet, this spice has a high concentration of oil which makes  it spark  when touched with a flame


A diminutive Fourth of  July in a cocktail glass...





The flames are extinguished when a lovely mingling of Mandarin Vodka and
Blood Orange juice are poured...




A BLAZING SUCCESS!
