A Drink and Things: A Three Ingredient Cocktail June 10 2016, 0 Comments

Hi all! It's been an exciting week here at Stewart & Claire. Our Negroni lip balm pre-sale went live on Monday. And our Summer lip balm is now available as well! 

And now, let's get on to this installment of "A Drink and Things."

 First up, A Drink:

The above cocktail is called the Adonis. It has a mere three ingredients (four, if you count the ice), and making it is a good excuse to use up the sweet vermouth I made you buy last week. Check out the recipe below. 

And things: 

It was my daughter's birthday this week, so I made this chocolate cake. It's dead easy and alway's good. 

Speaking of my daughter, as a parent, I love this series about parenting around the world. Did you know that in Germany, preschools take three-year-olds on three-day trips (without parents!) to foster independence? Sign me up!

After searching high and low for some great outdoor plates, we opted for these simple enamelware dishes

Is anyone else excited by the fact that chef Zac Pelaccio is cooking southeast Asian food again? Time for a trip to Hudson, NY. 

A friend recently started working for Sun Basket, a meal kit delivery service that focuses on fresh, sustainable, ethical ingredients from the West Coast. Now we can all cook like those smug Californians. ;)

Have you heard about frosé? Are you yay or nay?

Finally, the Recipe: 

Adonis

This low-alcohol aperitif is a classic, but this version comes from Komi restaurant in Washington, DC, and was published by Food & Wine magazine in 2010. 

1 1/2 ounces fino sherry
1 ounce sweet vermouth
2 dashes orange bitters
Ice

In a cocktail shaker, combine fino sherry, sweet vermouth and orange bitters. Add ice and stir well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
