Xante mixologist Josh Davis, @MrMixologist, tells people to “try something different, try something new, and just put your own spin on it.” That’s exactly what he does with Xante, a liqueur that blends Belgium pears and cognac from French distilleries.

Dinner guests at the swanky Park 52, located in President Obama’s Hyde Park neighborhood in Chicago, were treated to complimentary samples and Xante drink specials on Friday, July 20, 2012. Here, Davis shares two cocktail creations with rolling out. Click the gallery link to see photos from the evening. photos and video–zondra hughes
