It is finally feeling a bit more like fall over the past few days. With this kind of weather, the patio beckons and one of the coolest patios in town is at Bullfight. I was there with friends this week and tried a variety of drinks. A friend ordered Membrillo (pictured above) which contains Nolet's gin, orange sherry and quince jam. I had a sip and thought it was nicely balanced between the sweetness from the quince jam and the acid from the orange sherry. I ordered the Ahumado which has moonshine, mezcal, citrus, fig syrup and a grating of fresh nutmeg on top. The smokiness of the mescal was what hit me at first sip, but the drink was very smooth, with a nice contrast between the sweet fig and acid in the citrus. The last drink I tried was the Doña Rosa with fino sherry, vermouth, lavender, lemon and cava. The bubbles made this festive and it paired well with the variety of tapas on the menu. Try to pop by during happy hour, Monday-Friday 5:00-6:30 p.m. when beer, cider, vermouth, liquor and snacks are half off.
The love of food and how it can bring people together led to the creation of this blog. As a mother of two grown boys, who have left the nest and occasionally return, I noticed a common occurrence-- there is usually someone at home who is hungry.
