A Tropical Twist on Eggnog

posted on December 20th, 2018 by Dani Fogel

Over the last millennium, spiced and spiked eggnog has taken its spot as a classic Christmas drink. Love it or hate it, the creamy cups of cheer usually make their way to holiday parties as a way to raise spirits. Traditionally, eggnog is made with egg yolks, rum, and warm spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. This year, we’re introducing a tropical twist that may just get naysayers to change their tune: mango. Before building the beverage, it’s important to find a ripe and juicy mango. Our best tip is not to judge by color, but actually by feel. A ready-to-eat mango will have a slight give, much like ripe peaches or avocados. Then, it’s time to get the party started. Tropical Eggnog Ingredients: 1/4 cup spiced rum 5 cups of milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup mango puree 12 eggs 1/2 lb sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon Directions: Separate eggs and set whites in the refrigerator. In a mixing bowl, whisk yolks until creamy. Gradually add ¼ lb of sugar, beating at… Read More

Dark fruit and sweet-savory spice are central themes in this generous, soft-edged Bordeaux-esque blend.

Wine for the Weekend: The Calling Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

posted on December 13th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

The Calling Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 91 points Wine Spectator 2015 Here is another unbelievable Pinot find that can adorn your table, make a great stocking stuffer, a surprise gift under the tree or a simple indulgence while cooking the holiday feast. Fruit of this vintage was sourced from several locations in the Russian River Valley, each vineyard site contributing critical, unique aspects to the complexity of the resulting wine. Vineyards located in the warmer end of the Russian River Valley contribute ripe fruit elements. Vineyards from the cooler areas lend a strong minerality and structural backbone, and vines at altitude with sandy, well-drained soil add complexity and structure. This Pinot Noir shows aromas of Bing cherry, cranberry and a hint of white pepper. On the palate, lush raspberry and strawberry complement excellent acidity and a lingering finish. Happy Holidays Sale price is $19.99 Save $15.00! Suggested Retail $34.99 Purchase 6 or more bottles and… Read More
