Your gorgeous turkey is in the oven, the mashed potatoes are velvety smooth, the gravy is simmering on the stove, and your table is set to perfection. What’s missing? Ahh – you forgot the wine. Don't let your Thanksgiving dinner be served with the White Zinfandel your "favorite" cousin brought. I have enlisted the help of my friend and Certified Sommelier, Rumesha Ahmed, for some tips to picking out the wine to compliment your Thanksgiving meal and most importantly, keep a smile on your face.
It's June, my favorite month of the year! The weather is perfect, fresh produce has never looked better, and it's my Birthday month. There are a lot of ways to enjoy this glorious month, and I like to unwind at Vintry, my favorite New York City cocktail bar. For the month of June, Vintry is featuring a summertime favorite - Rosé. They have designed a delicious cocktail, the Rosé Cobbler (recipe below) and have paired it with a couple of dishes from their tasty small plates menu. Vintry - located on Stone St. in the heart of the Financial District, will be donating $1 from each Rosé Cobbler to my favorite charity, the Alzheimer's Association.
