One of the most fun parts of putting together our magazine is coming up with the cover idea... we love our signature illustrated look and had a blast with this season's design! Read on for more & for posters of our cover art, head over to Silverwood Home & Gallery.
All about our cover: There are several unique features of summer in Saratoga. Tops among them are jockeys, horses, and sharing carefully crafted cocktails with friends -- whether in a box at the track, at a picnic table with a well-stocked cooler, or from one of Saratoga's beautiful porches. And odds are, while you are enjoying your Saratoga libations, one of the small, jocular gentlemen will be watching nearby. So we put all of the Saratoga summer signatures in a virtual cocktail shaker and voila... the "Jocktail" was born. Instead of their traditional lanterns, our rigid riders hoist a variety of cocktail classics, and their statue-sized "silks" reflect the libation (the Jocktail bearing a giant olive on his jersey has a martini on his tray; ripe red tomato silks are the colors for our Bloody Mary Jocktail etcetera.) While you celebrate summer in Saratoga with friends and family, it's a safe bet one of the petite pilots will be enjoying your festivities from his permanent perch nearby! Happy summer, and keep an eye out for original A la Main Jocktail illustrations at Silverwood Home & Gallery!
