Pear & Thyme Fiz

It’s finally starting to feel like fall and we’re celebrating with this beautiful Pear & Thyme Fiz. The woodsy flavor of bosc pears works perfectly with fresh thyme. One bundle of herbs will leave you with some leftovers, perfect for cooking up our Ras El Hanout Rainbow Carrots as a side or snack.

While the marigold-studded ice cubes are totally optional, they are a guaranteed hit with any guests plus they’re so easy to make.

Cheers!

Turmeric Shrub

This cocktail works double duty with inflammation-reducing turmeric and weekend-inducing vodka or gin. After a short work week, we've been working extra hard to get the job done and this drink will help ease us back into a routine weekend.

We also love any opportunity to bring out this rich Mango Pulp Vinegar, which we found in the open air markets of southern France. Using fresh mango and extra strong spirit vinegar, it develops a more viscous texture and bold fruity flavor. We'll be using the rest of the bottle as a marinade for fish this weekend.
