St. John Frizell, owner of Fort Defiance and passionate cocktail extraordinaire, had a fabulous reason to celebrate last week!
He became the proud owner of a special item…a cocktail shaker once used by the Godfather of cocktails and author of The Gentleman’s Companion, Charles H. Baker Jr.
Cocktails were flowing! And once the shaker was permanently mounted in it’s new home, a hand-made art deco box, everyone cheered!! St. John may have shed a tear and I got to mingle around a packed room snapping the below photo set. ENJOY!
