The second cocktail installment in our Spring Cocktail Series is this ruby red stunner. I’m all about margaritas – always on the rocks, no salt – but rarely deviate from the traditional. This grapefruit margarita adds a fun twist to the mix, without compromising the components of a traditional margarita that I love so much. The perfect balance of sweet and tart, it’s a refreshing drink for the warmer weather months, and one you’re sure to make time and again.
A couple of weeks ago, we spent a leisurely Friday morning mixing up some craft cocktails for our Spring 2013 Cocktail Series. First up, this Cucumber Rosemary Gin and Tonic is a great way to kick things off.
Generally when the days get long and the temperatures spike, a gin and tonic is my go-to cocktail. It’s simple, refreshing, and reliable – all qualities I appreciate in a cocktail. With a squeeze of lime, it’s hard to beat – unless you start to dress it up with herbs and other subtle flavors.
We’ve already shared with you the table setting from our Hi-Rise spring dinner, but today we’ve got something even more exciting: the menu! Hi-Rise Bread Co. owner Rene planned and prepared the entire menu for the dinner, which was delicious from beginning to end. Given the springtime theme, he chose to feature a variety of in-season produce, including asparagus and rhubarb, which he incorporated into the main dish and dessert. Read on for the menu, but don’t blame us if you’re drooling by the end!
