The Manhattan Cocktail Classic is not just about crazy drinks, it’s about awesome food to be consumed with drinks. For a Campari event at the Lower East Side bar/performance space The Box, both bartender and chef were presented with both a challenge and a muse. The muse? Ms. Padma Lakshmi, Top Chef hostess, star of sultry TV commercials, and author of the cookbook Tangy, Tart, Hot, and Sweet. The challenge? To come up with a cocktail and food pairing that was either tangy, tart, hot, or sweet. Chef Sean Scotese came up with this sweet ceviche to be paired with the classic Negroni.
