Cocktails at New York Botanical Gardens

Yesterday, I told you about my recent visit to the New York Botanical Gardens (NYBG) and I gave you a little tour of The Martha Stewart Culinary Herb Garden.  I was supposed to meet my 400 guests at 7PM, but I was stuck in horrible traffic in Manhattan.  There was a United Nations General Assembly taking place that day and many streets were closed, causing me to be a bit late.  However, with a little help from some of my talented gardening staff and from my good friend and herb grower, Sal Gilbertie, the crowd was kept happy until my arrival and the evening was a big success.
