AUTUMN IS COMING!

My…the temperature has dropped and the leaves are just beginning to turn.  How exciting!   I am starting to see pumpkins being used for decoration and bags of apples ready for pies.

I have been working on some new Autumn martini recipes and of course tasting them….I won’t lie….it’s fun.   Mark has been making some wonderful and interesting changes to the menu as well and yes I have tasted them also.  I can’t wait to share them with you!   

Remember to have fun, go for a hayride or pick apples.  Take time in your busy life to enjoy the season. 

My Mother sent me a letter when I first went away to college and the following is a quote from it that I particularly liked.

“Before the icy, glittery fingers of winter get you in her grasp…may the playful winds of Autumn toss your curls a little.”

Happy Autumn!

LAST DAYS OF SUMMER WHITE FLIGHT

Here we are going into the last days of sun, picnics and warm summer nights.    To celebrate the end of a beautiful summer we are featuring a wine flight to savor the bright flavors of the sun in my most favorite way.  As always we will be linking three different wines…

 Young, fresh & fruity fragrance.   Strawberry fresh & elegant, slightly sweet, light bite.                     

DOMAINE DE LA CHAUVINIERE,   MUSCADET SEVRE ET MAINE, FR., 2011   

Flavors of  honey, quince. citrus, honeydew  & white oleander.  The finish is fresh & clean.                              

ETCETERA, TORRONTES , ARG., 2011        

Intense floral aromas & fresh grassy notes.     Star bright with lemon, lychee, & a hint of cashew nuts.

Cheers,
