Yum, We Love . . .

January 9, 2015

Last year Karen, Erica and I were invited to attend an intimate event hosted by Woodford Reserve. we got to the chance to meet/drink with a number of spirit journalists and enthusiasts, in addition to Master Distiller, Chris Morris. Woodford was debuting the latest from their Master’s Collection: Sonoma-Cutrer Pinot Noir Finish – a mature Woodford Reserve bourbon finished in Pinot Noir barrels from Sonoma-Cutrer Winery. Needless to say, it was a fabulous evening of wine and whiskey, but most of all, friends. You see, despite our proximity here on the site, Karen and I are a whole golden state apart. Sure, there are trips back and forth, but we’re both pretty settled in our hometowns. So today for happy hour, I busted out a bottle of this splendid whiskey, along with a few pairings (aged gouda, chocolate covered cherries, and smoked salmon to name a few) and toasted the memory of that warm summer night in beautiful San Francisco.

Despite the cold, and the fact that strawberries, rasberries, watermelons are not in season, winter is tasty! Hearty soups, sauce covered pasta, hot tea, Delicious!

Love all of these, especially another weekend of football playoffs and your happy hour toasted to friends. Thanks for sharing the links, all great finds!

Todd, you are the sweetest! Thanks for the link to my wings AND for the well-wishes as we prepare to welcome baby #2 to our family table 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend! xo

Oh my goodness…those wings, those wings, my kingdom for a plate of those wings (sorry Shakespeare/Richard III). And I’d also have given my kingdom to be a guest at your Woodford tasting party. Woodford is my go-to bourbon and that sounds incredible. Gonna have to search for a bottle at one of my local stores.
