Mother Earth Libations

Now how many times in your life have you spent the day in the garden thinking about what great cocktail you are going to harvest today? Maybe never! But absolutely great Gardentails are just sitting there waiting for the pickin’.

She's Hot Mary

BloodyYaki

Start this Hot Mama out with some Garden Infused Vodka.

Jalapeños, Habanero Chiles, and Fresh Basil, and Limes fire up this Gardentail. 

I like to make home made Tomato Basil Soup using my fresh San Marzanos and use as my mix, along with a little horseradish. Mix in about 4 tablespoons of Barbeyaki Spicy and you are ready to take off. Then pour in that infused vodka and garnish with olives, picked cucumber spears , and a piece of crispy bacon. Goes real good with a big bowl of your favorite Gelato.  This recipe curtsy of Barbeyaki Master Chef John Woods.

The Chamtito

The Chamjito

On the refreshing side of things, try out the Chamjito. Champagne with Mojito. Muddle some of your fresh mint, limes with some sugar water and Silver Rum.  Strain and pour half a flute mixed with the other half of Champagne. The garnish with fresh raspberries, blueberries, and tiny leaves of mint. You better make a bunch of this because you can’t stopped drinking them.

The Flower Child

The Flower Child

This Gardentail is for all of you Flower Folks. Infuse some Titos Vodka with Elderflowers, Buffalo Grass and Basil. Mix together 65% Rose wine and 35% of your Floral Concoction. Garnish with Blueberries.

And last but not least, the Delta Punch

Delta Punch...and It's Packed

Midnight in Paris

Foreign Cinema is a true emprise of food exploration. Not only is this one of the most fascinating menus I have encountered, you actually get to watch a French Film while you dine. It is hard to believe that Gayle Pirie (Zuni Cafe) and John Clark (Chez Panisse) pair a menu with a French film each month.

You would swear you were back in 1930’s Paris. When FC opened in the late 90’s there was no mention of a restaurant inside the building. You just had to stumble upon it or hear through the culinary grapevine about it. For me the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence and the great cheeses throughout the menu truly make this a must dine while in the city.

The Foreign Cinema Courtyard

Foreign Cinema is also known for their Sunday Brunches. The only way I know how to describe the dishes for the brunch is to visually show you. Words cannot do it justice.

Not Like You Have Ever Had Eggs

Brown Sugar Glazed Bacon

Strawberry Pop Tarts

Indian Spiced Bloody Marys

If that doesn’t make you jump in your car and head to the airport, then nothing will. San Francisco shopping next.
