Since karma could never quite taste as sweet, we'd much rather be singing along to the tune of Cocktail Chameleon, Mark Addison's new bar cart must-have for both beginners and cocktail connoisseurs alike. In it, the expert entertainer and master mixologist explores over 140 unique takes on the classic drinks we all know and love. Clearly, he prefers things shaken, not stirred.

In order to toast the new book (and seriously show off his skills behind the bar) Addison joined Assouline and Dirty Lemon at The Drug Store for some healthy sips - that didn't skimp on the booze. As is customary for storefront summertime parties, the cool kid revelers quickly spilled onto the streets of Nolita, pink, rose petal cocktails firmly in hand. And despite the calming formula, guests raged on in the name of celebration.
