This Bloody Mary Is Made With Fresh Tomatoes

2 jung-best-newport

After a recent pilgrimage to Block Island, I can still hear the lovely sisters at the Darius Inn chiming, “There’s a reason for every season.” It’s a refrain that won’t seem to quiet in the back of my mind. They’re right – certain activities and flavors are best left to certain times of the year.

1 tomato-puddingstone-bitte

In August, fresh tomatoes speak for themselves, and I′m getting ready to harvest, slice, crush, can, and – yes – drink my weight in tomatoes. Fresh tomato juice may, in fact, be one of the reasons I was put on this planet. It′s silky, savory, and mysteriously light compared to off-the-shelf bottled varieties. Sure, a tomato from the grocery store will do the trick, but not during the late summer months.

Gold Rush, Green Zebras, Black Krim – heirloom tomatoes are an exceptionally poetic lot. In winter, I dream about their peculiar shades and organic shapes, deeply creased and delightfully blotched with color. Ask me in February what varieties of tomato I’ll be growing later that year and I′ll spout off the lyrical list: Early Girl, Brandywine, Purple Cherokee. I deeply look forward to August and its fruitful bounty. And all those tomatoes, of course, mean Bloody Marys…

4 GRILL-vegg-newport

The drink was purportedly invented by Ferdinand “Pete” Petiot at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris after World War I, when canned tomato juice first hit the market. Pete added vodka, a dash of lemon, and a few spicy seasonings, and the rest is history…

It’s the Summer of Mezcal, and This Is the Frozen Raspberry Drink of Your Dreams

11-garnish-frezcal

“A good berry picker moves with her hands, not her feet.” The words have been emblazoned into my mind from years of driving up the dirt road to the berry patch at Macomber Farm. I can still see Mr. Macomber whizzing down the path on his clunky mountain bike, all wheels and spokes, a cloud of dust trailing behind him to meet me by the fence and the “Pick UR Own” sign. Strewn on the picnic table, an inviting stack of green paper baskets would be waiting to be filled to the brim with the ripe berries of the moment.

Even today, as I approach a different farmer, questions dart through my mind: Will he have any strawberries left? Are the raspberries ripe yet? When do the blueberries usually come in, again? How many berries is too many to eat in the field? Damn it, did I leave my sun hat in the car? Yes, I am sure I did…

6-raspberry-fingers

My favorite mezcal cocktail is the Raspberry Frezcal. I know it sounds Seussian, but it’s the name that’s stuck, summer after summer, when the fresh berries come in. Frezcal is like the older sister of frosé (yes, that’s frozen blended rose) that only leaves the house in kitten heels – vibrant, pink, frothy, and a bit of an ice queen. I love Raspberry Frezcal….

Meet Daisy

Adrienne Nicole’s Lavender Daisy – Photo by Chip Riegel

Laid Back With Lavender

Muddle and pour: the two simple actions involved in building a Daisy, a style of cocktail dating back to the mid-19th century that employs a base spirit, fresh lemon juice, sweetener and a splash of soda water.

The Lavender Daisy, is an utterly refreshing, botanical take on a spritzy sour with a sweet snappy tartness and bold floral character. Fresh muddled blueberry and lavender blossoms reach new complexity, footed by notes of the lemon zest, angelica and almond present in Bombay Sapphire Gin. Honey syrup and fresh lemon juice form a sweet-sour acidity that cuts the perfume of the lavender, seducing the sipper with its honeyed tendrils. The magenta hue of the Lavender Daisy recalls a pink sunset prism and beckons a seat with an ocean view.

The classic Pimm’s Cup receives an update with a shot of gin, fresh herbs & edible blossoms

Ah summer! It always brings our favorite things, like sitting on the porch, wearing plaid at polo matches, sunsets on the lawn, pink shorts, boat shoes, Wimbledon, and, of course, the Pimm’s Cup.

An exquisite vehicle for fresh summer fruit, herbs, and produce, the Pimm’s Cup reigns as one of the best cocktails to ring in the golden hour. Categorized as a “long” or “tall” drink, this classic cocktail is… Read on for the full story & recipe
