Cheese and Beer 4Eva
It’s late October, the Halloween decorations
are up, and I’m craving a spooky potion.
Enter the Witch’s Flight, a spellbinding spin on the classic Aviation cocktail:
gin perfumed by lemon, violet, and maraschino liqueur,
all kissed by the green fairy.
It’s a bright, refreshing concoction with a ghoulish glow,
conjured up to pair with Purple Haze from Cypress Grove.
Herbaceous and citrusy gin cocktails play so well with fresh goat cheese.
But this combination is particularly bewitching.
It’s fall, y’all! I’m sad that summer is ending, but there’s just nothing
like a cozy evening spent with a whiskey drink and a wedge of fine cheese.
Especially Humboldt Fog from Cypress Grove, so dense and cake-like
she begs for something slightly sweet and soul-warming.
So I conjured up a simple, sweet, autumnal cocktail.
Enter the Maple Manhattan.
A wedge of cheese and a cold beer is my favorite easy meal.
I love unwinding from the day with something so satisfying and simple to prepare.
Crisp, refreshing ales are choice in the summertime,
which is why I reached for the One Tun Pale Ale from Colectivo Keg Co. in Wisconsin.
A shot of straight Bësk is like a punch in the palate, but it’s refreshing and citrusy when mixed into a cocktail – like this delicious martini with notes of grapefruit, licorice and nectar. It’s also easier to pair with cheese when served in this format. Try it with an goat milk gouda, such as Midnight Moon, Beemster or even one from Trader Joe’s
