BITE + SIP : PERSIMMON GINGER FIZZ

11/12/2013
Case Study Image

have you heard of the delightful spirits from Art in the Age?  with an amazing collection including ROOT, SAGE, SNAP and RHUBARB, there’s something for everyone.  a few weeks ago, the kind folks at Art in the Age sent us a bottle of their SNAP to test out.  and let me tell you… it’s incredible.

we’ve been mixing it with everything from hard apple cider to ginger ale and have even drizzled it over dulce de leche gelato and baked it into a cake!  I thought I’d share with you a little cocktail I whipped up today.

PERSIMMON GINGER FIZZ
makes 2 drinks

2 very ripe persimmons, pulp scooped and pureed
3 oz of SNAP
4 oz of apple cider*
1 generous knob of ginger, chopped
fizzy water
cinnamon
apple slices for garnish
ice

shake the persimmon puree, apple cider and ginger really well in a shaker with ice.  divide evenly between glasses and fill with fizzy water to the top.  dash with cinnamon, garnish with apple slices and enjoy!

to find SNAP or any of the other Art in the Age spirits in your area, visit their website here.

*not the hard stuff this time, but it’d probably be really good!  you could swap out the regular apple cider and fizzy water for hard cider.  I recommend Doc’s Pumpkin Cider or Anthem Apple Cider.

Boozy Pumpkin Bread

It's another Monday and I'm back at it again with some sugary-carb overload. Also: yes, it's seasonal! I've officially used two cans of pumpkin, and am gearing up to use more as the leaves continue to change colors and fall. I love pumpkin pastas to the moon and back, but we  all know this vegetable is best enjoyed in a sweet context.

Hot Ginger & Rhubarb Tea Cocktail

11/11/2013
Case Study Image

I like to take this part of the year one holiday at a time. What's the use in getting caught up in all of the stressfulness of the ever-increasingly-more-commercialized holiday season? It's not even Thanksgivukkah yet, people! Relax and enjoy the autumn wind and crunchy leaves. If you need a little help doing so, you're going to want to keep reading and give this drink a try. When the good folks over at Art in the Age saw my Gingersnap Cocktail, they loved it and wanted more. They sent me a bottle of their Rhubarb Tea flavored liqueur to try out and to mix into a new delicious concoction. After a couple of tries, I decided that ginger, rhubarb, cranberry, and rosemary would be a winning combination.
