The Stinton: A Cocktail Inspired by Stacy London and Clinton Kelly's Addiction to Manhattans

What do you get when you put Clinton Kelly and Stacy London in a room together? Not just the chemistry to pull off ten transformation-filled years of What Not to Wear, but one fantastic cocktail, too: The Stinton (get it?). An homage to our addiction to drinking Manhattans while filming Season 7, this drink’s got sweet, sass and always tells the truth. Just like us. P.S. Stacy’s got a new project on TLC, a “make-under” show called Love, Lust or Run. Check it out!

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
