Award-winning actor, performer, author, and photographer Alan Cumming is ridiculously charming—and, obviously, multi-talented, so it’s hardly surprising that he’s now the owner of a bar. Club Cumming is an East Village gem that captures the same spirit as its owner’s storied dressing room parties, where everyone is welcome, and the atmosphere is super laid-back and fun, so everyone’s sure to have a good time. Generously poured drinks never hurt, either. This one, called the Up and Cumming, is a rosy blend of tequila, pineapple juice, sweet orange-flavored triple sec, lime, and cranberry juice. Follow along with the video if you want to shake up a casual portion for two (or maybe even three!), or if you prefer precision, you can find more reasonable measurements at left.
