In anticipation of the red hot red carpet this Sunday, Goodtaste got together with several of our go-to mixologists from the Houston hospitality scene to concoct a cocktail, inspired by their favorite film nominated at the 86th Academy Awards. These recipes can be a lot of fun to whip together for any festive viewing parties! And the winners are…
Cocktails for a top shelf cause! San Antonio’s own Cocktail Conference (SACC) was the first of its kind in Texas. Modeled after the wildly popular Manhattan Cocktail Classic and New Orleans’ Tales of the Cocktail event, this gathering of goblets is back in the Alamo City for yet another go-around, January 16 – 19th.
Open your imagination at Masraff’s in Uptown: consistently one of the highest rated restaurants in all of Houston. I love this place! Sommelier Ben Roberts recently shared some of his picks for winter cocktails that really wow this holiday season…plus five-star fare to pair with.
Wow! That was my reaction to a cocktail that’s almost too good to be true. Master mixologist, Rosie of Masraff’s on the Boulevard has struck gold again with her Pumpkin Pie Martini…it’s so light and captures the best aspects of pumpkin all around!
If you’re like me, Halloween marks the beginning of the holiday season. I love the smell of fall and the taste of all of the Halloween goodies. Tempting treats for costumed companions and hungry party goers alike. Here are some fab munchies to treat your guests to! Get creative and have fun…
It’s totally time to COOL OUT this summer and feel invigorated with a spirit or two to lift your spirit! There are some wonderfully creative and original fruity blends here to try at home…that is, if you can’t make it out to the following fab locations.
Make today a celebratory occasion! Enjoy this beautiful weather and soak in Cinco de Mayo with cocktails you can’t go wrong with. Two margaritas, a Mexican Bloody Mary and a slick Michelada to choose from!
One is a Mexican Bloody Mary, the other a mighty fine Michelada. Two ice cold drinks made for afternoons out by the pool, nights in Old San Antonio and perhaps, most especially, the mornings that follow! Fiesta continues all this week with juicy cocktails like these at the center of the action.
Ahhh! The San Antonio Cocktail Conference 2013 is already approaching THIS week! This four-day, fun-filled event (Jan 17-20) comes complete with daytime seminars, two competitions, evening cocktail parties — and it’s all for a good cause. Last year’s inaugural event was a huge success, raising $57,000 for HeartGift!
My favorite outdoor patio in the Alamo City is at Paesanos 1604. This place is just beautiful. Spend a relaxing evening with friends and be sure to grab a fabulous cocktail or two while you’re at it!
