One of our favorite chefs shares a refreshing Summer cocktail.....
Marcus Samuelsson, winner of Top Chef Masters Season 2, is an Ethiopian-born, Swedish-raised chef and owner of Red Rooster Harlem in New York City.
"Part Ethiopian, part ginger beer, and all parts mouthwatering, the concoction is paried with Cocci Americano, a citrusy and cinnamon packed apertif, some pineapple juice and ginger beer."
