Handcrafted Classic Cocktail Recipe: Florodora

Written on July 21, 2014

Available through July 30, 2014

Florodora was one of the first successful Broadway musicals of the 20th century.  The show opened in London in 1899, and then to even more popularity in New York in 1900.  The show was famous for its chorus line of “Florodora Girls.”  The runaway hit, “Tell Me Pretty Maiden,” sung by the “Florodora Girls Sextet” was very popular, and provocative, for the time.  The cocktail was created to commemorate the show, and we know it was served at the infamous Waldorf-Astoria bar.  With such staying power for both the musical and the drink itself, we know that you will love it.

Handcrafted Classic Cocktail Recipe: Florodora

Ingredients

1.5 oz Hendrick’s Gin

1 Strawberry, de-stemmed and cut into quarters

Red Wine vs White Wine

Written on June 24, 2014

We are in the midst of the world’s greatest soccer tournament, but we have a different type of score to settle: #TeamRedWine vs #TeamWhiteWine. We know there are strong feelings about one or the other, so today is the day they go up against each other. What team are you on? Watch the comments on Facebook today, you will ultimately decide.

Red Wine vs White Wine

#TeamRedWine. Red wines are the preferred choice in countries like Italy and France. These wines have rich flavors due in part to the dark red and black grapes, including their skins. In fact, the antioxidants found in the skin gives this variety heart-healthy qualities. The most popular reds are Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Syrah and Zinfandel.

VS

#TeamWhiteWine. Most white wines have a light and fruity taste, but there are other varietals with a richer flavor. Just to name a few – Champagne, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier – are familiar types of white wines. Did you know that Champagne has been found to be as beneficial as cocoa?

Who do you think should win? Leave us a comment on Facebook!
