Pinkies Up! - Come Sail with Me!

Ahoy! The Anchor bar is aptly titled as it indeed has been firmly anchored in Soho for over six years now. Savvy nightlife folks Gunther Bilali and Jason LaGarenne are the smooth operators, offering up a revolving roster of punch bowls that really pack a wallop! Look to vodka-based Spring St. Punch, the Anchor Power Punch with high octane rum, and perhaps for something a little kinder, the Sea Shanty Punch with fizzes of Champagne.

I think however that the Murricane, named after regular Bill Murray, is requisite. Sail away to The Anchor or set a course for adventure and make it at home!

2 oz fresh watermelon
4 or 5 basil leaves
1.5 oz bourbon
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
3/4 oz St-Germain elderflower liqueur

Combine the watermelon and basil leaves in a mixing glass or shaker and muddle. Fill the shaker with ice, add the bourbon, lemon juice and St-Germain, and shake with vigor. Strain into a highball glass and garnish with freshly cracked black pepper and a juicy watermelon wedge.

And here's a pic of the punch--all aboard! 

The Anchor is located at 310 Spring St (b’twn Hudson/Greenwich Sts) in New York City.
