Lucky enough 6 more weeks ahead await for Rubin, Bruna and I. Very few places in the world give me so much peace and happiness.

Apothéke Mixology and Prescriptions

20130825-122712.jpgApothéke Mixology and Prescriptions | New York, United States | Inspired by the history and rise of the apothecary in Europe as well as the artistic influence of absinthe dens in 19th century Paris, Apothéke is the first of its kind. The entire experience from wandering down a hidden street to find the entrance, to tasting the first sip of a specialty cocktail made with exotic herbs and fruits – is a privilege. I have only experienced such take on mixology before at The Alchemist in Manchester, UK.
20130825-122855.jpg At Apothéke, the presentation of a cocktail is just as dramatic as the cocktail itself. The bar is no longer a bar. It’s a stage. A chemistry lab. A theatre. A unique-shaped Austrian crystal glass is carefully selected for each cocktail, and into it, is poured a beautiful, jewel-colored liquid. This is much more than a cocktail bar – this is a cocktail apothecary.
20130825-123147.jpg My choices for the night, three of them… Well two different cocktails, and one repeat ha ha. Call me crazy but anything that has cilantro and is combined with ginger and the word Buddha in it, I am down with it, so two of those drinks were a Sitting Buddha, Absolut Vodka, Lemongrass, Fresh Pineapple, Cilantro, Ginger, Lillet Blanc, Lime, Skin Tincture. And then one The Matador, Olmeca Altos Reposado Tequila, Bell Pepper, Cantaloupe, Habañero Bitters, Pink Peppercorn, Sea Salt Rim.
20130825-123300.jpgJust arriving on the taxi and going by Doyers St alley and seeing all the cool people walking by and around looking for the little door, right in the heart of Chinatown, with the trash truck wondering around, the low lights and smells classic of this neighborhood, and all of the sudden walk through the door, after you make it through the invitees list… WOW just so many flashbacks on my late fun nights in Asia in Hong Kong, Bangkok or Chiang Mai. Thank you Anthony and Denise Vasi. Best of luck at the VMAs tonight, and check the red carpet for some Rubin Singer moments. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

Kayaking Salt River in Sonoran Desert

Kayaking Salt River in Sonoran Desert by www.carlosmeliablog.com Kayaking Salt River in Sonoran Desert  |  Phoenix, Arizona  |  This morning at 8AM I was picked up by John my expert outback guide by AOAArizona Outback Adventures, and we drove for almost 45 minutes East from Phoenix along McDowell and Superstition Mountains and the stream of the Salt River and the Sonoran Desert as the background, to reach Salt River Park, starting point of our Kayaking in Arizona experience.

Float down the Lower Salt River on a guided kayak tour or guided rafting trip and discover a scenic and relaxing desert oasis. While drifting on this class 1 river you are surrounded by spectacular, unobstructed 70-mile views into 4 different mountain ranges. Flowing from the mountains in Northern Arizona, the Salt River is captured by four dams and released for use by Phoenicians and farmers year-round.

A reliable source of water, the Salt River attracts a variety of wild life, making it common to enjoy close encounters with animals enjoying their natural habitat. Some favorites include; groups of wild horses ambling along the riverbanks, Great Blue Herons and the majestic Bald Eagle hunting for prey.

Kayaking Salt River in Sonoran Desert by www.carlosmeliablog.comSuch a relaxing and rewarding morning, learning about the Sonoran Desert, local native Americans, the desert ecosystem, while floating and paddling along the Salt River. Won’t take you longer than a full morning, and if you choose booking the option which includes transfers in/out, you will be back at your hotel before lunch, unless you really enjoy the outdoors and opt for the full day option. Josh, my guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I went for the private tour option, but prices for the regular tours start at USD 100 per person on. MUST Try. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommen
