What Are We Drinking Now? Quinta Promesa Mencía

Drew is digging this medium-bodied, floral Iberian imbiber. So will you. Mencía, grown in Spain and Portugal, is fairly similar to Garnacha, but this expression shows oaky richness and deep red fruit. Coupled with velvety tannins, it makes a fantastic food wine when paired with peppery meat or earthy mushroom-based dishes. Buy a few and see how it ages. Quinta Promesa Mencía $14.99/btl ORDER ONLINE (Order online if you'd rather not come into the shop.

What Are We Drinking Now? Leopold Bros Aperitivo

Drew has embraced the complexity of Leopold Bros Aperitivo. The Leopolds’ take on a traditional Italian aperitif is beautiful, bright, and best of all…..BITTER. Grapefruit peel and coriander dominate the mix, but this light liqueur is complex. Backed by botanicals such as artemisia pontica, common to vermouth and absinthe, there is heady, herbaceous nuance in every sip. This stuff CRUSHES CAMPARI! Try it in your next Negroni or Boulevardier, or in a simple spritz with sparkling wine. And, second best of all (first best is the bitterness, if we recall — there will be a test), you can buy it [...]

What Are We Drinking Now? A Boutique Tequila: Arette Artesenal “Suave” Blanco

Arette Blanco has been my go-to tequila for years, and this selection from their boutique "Artesenal Suave" line is incredible. The Orendian family has been producing high-quality tequilas in Jalisco since 1900, and master distiller brothers Eduardo Sr and Jaime hand-pick the finest organic agave to be fermented in concrete for their boutique line. The result is a standout blanco — clean and complex with some natural sweetness and fruit tones. HIGHLY recommended if you love the budget-friendly classic blanco in your margaritas — this one is a must-sip! Arette Artesenal "Suave" Blanco $54.99/btl

What Are We Drinking Now? Domaine Modat Le Petit Modat’Mour Rouge

My favorite burger in town is from Bistro Georgette, and whenever I make them at home I attempt to capture that insanely delicious balance of richness and acidity. For me, what that boils down to is a patty of equal parts ground beef and pork, and a healthy hunk of red onion that is pickled, then grilled. I stole that from them. I'll tweak some of the other toppings, try different sauces maybe, but I need the extra fat and some vinegar-y, pickle-y goodness as a foundation. Fries are nice on the side, but this time of year I [...]
