NEW YORK, NEW YORK — Local bartending trendsetter Duane Reece posted the above photo over the weekend, with the caption “Zesty Siesta! #coolasacucumber” And to be honest we’re not sure what to make of it.  Is this anything?


We had out associate editor do some weekend research on the cultural significance of the tiny Japanese Rock Gardens in the Mexican drylands just in case these little boxes the next big thing.


Editor’s Note: We reached out to Duane for comment and he informed us that this cocktail was from a cocktail competition he entered in 2016.  He placed second, and had forgotten the story he made up to justify the presentation.
