Welcome back to the table! We want to inspire everyone we know this season to get back to what matters and back to the real fun of the holidays.
Mind on my money? Money on my mind? Nah, not for us. But we’ll take the gin and juice! Here’s a holiday treat for your party guests, or just something to sip on while lounging at home.
You’d have to be a real Scrooge not to feel the holiday spirit with the Bourbon Bubbler. Everything from the way it looks, to the warmth it creates with every sip just beckons us to come back to the table, back to the celebration with loved ones. It’s a beautiful thing.
There’s something about the flavor of peach we find very wintery. It’s usually more closely associated with summer, but there’s something about its mild sweetness and delicate taste that make us think of a cold winter’s day. And so, we set out on a mission to create the perfect winter peach cocktail.
Some of the most memorable American holiday traditions revolve around food. When we think of the holidays, we conjure up visions of turkey and gravy, roasted ham and mashed potatoes, or even sugarplums that dance in our heads.
As we’re inching closer to this holiday season, we can’t help but feel inspired. We’re inspired by those consummately American traditions this time of year: family meals with all the staples, family get-togethers with drinks and memories, trees, wreaths, the whole shebang. But just a few weeks ago we were also inspired by our friends with the Lee Initiative.
It is unseasonably cold for early October in Austin. Just last week the heavy warmth of a late summer still lingered, but today the air is crisp and clean as rain clouds shade the sun from our eyes. It’s still early as Chefs Ben Runkle of Salt and Time Butcher Shop & Salumeria and Todd Duplechan of the critically acclaimed Lenoir restaurant pull up to Boggy Creek Farms to ensure they have the first pick of today’s produce. As soon as you pull onto the small gravel road leading up to the farm, it feels like all of the reality of Austin melts away. Here there are no traffic lines, no flashing lights, no advertisements or billboards, just the earth and people who have devoted their lives to healing and encouraging the land.
This year’s Echo Park Rising Music, Art & Community Festival was a phenomenal experience. We not only enjoyed being a supporting sponsor, we also enjoyed the energy meeting all of the wonderful people who collectively make Echo Park one of the most unique neighborhoods in Los Angeles.
