As true believers of the work hard, play hard mantra, we present you with It’s Been a Long Week, a weekly column aimed at awarding some liquid appreciation to you for just being yourself, dammit. Make a glass or two on us, you deserve it.


Queen of the Night’s Queen’s Bush
Enter Queen of the Night—a subversive and sexy take on dinner theatre at New York’s Diamond Horseshoe at the Paramount Hotel—with the Queen’s Bush cocktail. Part vodka and part herby citrus, the drink harkens the memory of the production’s star torching her garden for the masked ball of 1874.



  • 2 oz. Vodka
  • 1 oz. Lemon
  • 1 oz. Rosemary simple syrup
