Remember those stories about the Garden of Eden that you have heard? Supposedly, it wasn’t an apple with which the serpent tempted Eve, but a Pomegranate. Maybe even a Pomegranate cocktail.

Originally native to parts of China, India and the Middle East, the pomegranate made its way into western civilization with the onset of trade. Celebrated by ancient Egyptians but purposely avoided by early meat loving Europeans, the word pomegranate means seeded apple. Pomegranates gained popularity in more recent years with its identification as an antioxidant rich “super fruit” and remains one of the few fruits that are nearly impossible to find out of season.

Lucky you, pomegranates are in season during November and December and serve as a great addition to a multitude of culinary adventures, from salad dressings, homemade jellies and that’s right, cocktails. Read More

I spent three and a half months living in Venice, Italy when I was twenty, in the fall of 2007. It was a rare and fascinating experience considering most people breeze through the city for a week or two to hit the tourist spots and take a gondola ride.

I was still there after the tourists got too hot, the weather got too cold, the water got too high. In my weeks spent wandering the streets, exploring different neighborhoods, and trying to get beyond the frustrating layer of tourists, I found a sliver of the authentic Venice. Read More

March Madness Cocktail Recipe

When the first green shoots of spring break through frozen soil, I like to break out a crate of strawberries and a bottle of mezcal for a refreshing cocktail. Tequila’s bad boy cousin mezcal brings a smoky, savory element to this drink that works well with tart, fruity strawberries. Sip it while filling out March Madness brackets or starting a new gardening project.

The Sour, Bitter, & Sweet Cocktail Recipe

By Lindsay Hunt | February 11, 2011

Two weeks ago I shared my recipe for Grapefruit Bourbon Sours with Honey Simple Syrup. It’s combination of tart and sweet makes for a refreshing cocktail, but since then, I’ve been craving the addition of something bitter.

 

While many people shirk at bitter’s punch, I find the taste addictive and perfect in a cocktail.  Campari’s bright color and bitter flavor pairs well with lemon’s sour pucker, and both benefit from a bit of the same Honey Simple Syrup.  For a lighter cocktail, forgo the Bourbon and add an extra 1/2 ounce of Campari.

Cheers!
