A generous and tech-savvy group of Edible readers joined our editorial staff to help organize our archives. Here’s a reading list that we dug up during the “recategorization-palooza” to help inspire you this Thanksgiving season.
Brooklyn’s first dessert and cocktail bar will be at our What’s Cooking event this Wednesday! Do we have to ask you twice to check out these luscious pies?
Tomorrow and Thursday, Edible teams up with eight liquor shops throughout Brooklyn for a Hendrick’s Gin Tasting. Lucky us — we’ve got the Hendrick’s gin cocktail recipe that Ayana Suknanan from Gnarly Vines Wines and Spirits will make!
Local, seasonal cocktails sound hard to come by, until you realize you live in a city that’s surrounded by sweet corn and tomatoes. White Pike Whiskey, located in the Finger Lakes, does all the farming, milling, distilling and bottling to create their smooth, clean whiskey. Lucky us, Steven Ljubicic from White Pike gave us his recipe for the perfect fall cocktail: the Bloody Mary.
The Forrest Gump cocktail from Nick and Toni’s Cafe features Brooklyn’s own Cacao Prieto Cacao Rum, which we wrote about in Edible Brooklyn. It goes down easy with some Valentine’s chocolate, just saying…
This cocktail calls for beet kvass, a slightly fizzy, naturally fermented drink from the Old World. Find it at Zabar’s made by Brooklyn-based company The Gefelteria.
This weekend St. John Frizell, owner and bartender at Red Hook’s fab bar and restaurant Fort Defiance, will be teaching a class called “FIRE IN THE BOWL!: Hot Drinks for Long Nights” at the Intercourse, also in Red Hook. We’re big fans of hot punch, ‘specially this time of year, and thought we’d pass along the class description.
Combine equal parts urban farmer and cocktail connoisseur, add a jigger of underground DIY sensibility, and you’ve got yourself an illicit liqueur CSA.
