Good Spirits

One Great Drink: The Manzanotta Tequila Cocktail

While bartender contests are usually not our scene (don’t you HATE it when you get a recipe that calls for three things you’ve never even heard of, let alone have in your pantry?), there was one drink at the Don Julio Tequila cocktail competition at Good Spirits we tried that we absolutely have to, and can easily, make at home.

This Week on the Event Calendar: Forecasting the Year Ahead in Food, Farm Policy and Politics

Predicting the weather is Punxsutawney Phil’s domain. Predicting what’s going to happen when it comes to food, farm policy and politics? That’s where the NYC Food Almanac 2012 comes in. On January 24th from 6:30 to 9 pm at 632Below, a group of experts (including Edible’s own Brian Halweil) will predict what will happen and call for what should happen with a panel discussion and Q&A.

This Week on the Edible Calendar–Cocktail Party Tickets, Killer Cookies and Slow Wine

As February approaches, we’re getting more and more excited about this year’s first edition of Good Spirits, our seasonal cocktail event held at 82 Mercer on February 28. (Which just happens to be the birthday of our events director Sam Seier, so when she runs past you to make sure there are napkins at The Beagle table and ice for the guys making drinks with El Buho Mezcal, please wish her a good one.) We can’t wait to see what places like The Beagle or Monument Lane and Fort Reno will feed us, or what “good spirits” we’re going to drink made from El Buho, Privateer Rum or Bache Gabrielsen. It’ll all be great, for sure, so headed over here to purchase your $45 ticket to join us (and wish Sam a happy birthday).
