A New Literary Libation: Expat Harem Martini

Thursday, March 29th in the bohemian district of Istanbul, Joe McCanta, the cutting-edge mixologist at Saf Ecobistro & Martini Bar, debuted his newest organic cocktail: The Expat Harem Martini.

McCanta --a veteran of the East Village’s organic wine & martini bar
Counter—created this literary libation after reading our locally-grown, internationally bestselling anthology. Sipping the crisp and spicy concoction (vodka, cucumber, ginger beer and green apple juice) along with the collection’s editors and writers Katherine Belliel, Eveline Zoutendijk and Trici Venola were 50 literary fans from eight countries and four continents. With Saf branches opening in Geneva, Stockholm, London and Munich, it’s easy to see how the Expat Harem’s intoxicating effect will continue to spread!
