by Andy Warhol


For one day only, the public had a chance to see Rock Star Alice Cooper’s multi-million-dollar Andy Warhol - The legendary acrylic and silkscreen ink on canvas, Little Electric Chair outside of Larsen Gallery at Neiman Marcus in Scottsdale, AZ. The Warhol, made available from Larsen Gallery, would be auctioned off to the highest bidder during the 2021 Fall Larsen Art Auction. The Warhol is expected to fetch between $2.5 and $4.5 million and could become Arizona’s highest selling artwork to date. Neiman Marcus hosted a VIP Cocktail Reception for special guests treated to a performance by Indie/Folk Singer-Songwriter Sophie Dorsten from Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock Foundation.

Black Magic Martini

recipe and photo from MEGHAN Y. cake-n-knife.com


Blackberry Puree: 6 oz blackberries, 1 1/2 oz brandy, 1/2 oz lemon juice, 1/4 tsp black food coloring

Thyme Simple Syrup: 5 sprigs fresh thyme, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water

Cocktail: 4 oz Absolut Elyx vodka, 3 oz blackberry puree, 1 oz thyme simple syrup, ice, crushed dry ice


To make the thyme simple syrup, combine thyme, sugar, and water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat and cover. Steep for 30 minutes. Remove thyme sprigs and let cool completely.

To make the blackberry puree, combine blackberries, brandy, lemon juice and black food coloring in a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth. Set in the refrigerator until you make the cocktail.

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add Absolute Elyx vodka, blackberry puree and thyme simple syrup. Shake well and strain into a martini glasses. Top (carefully!) with a small spoonful of crushed dry ice for the smoky effect!

Note: use caution when consuming the beverage with dry ice in it - Let it smoke and get cold, before removing dry ice chunks that didn't melt away at the bottom of the glass.
