despite the cold it was another great evening of cocktails at the ferry building, with infusions, foams, and even homemade gummy bears. the first farmers market happy hour of the season featured all female bartenders, as well as women-owned spirits pur and square one. jennifer seidman’s “indian summer” punch, featuring oxley gin and pickled beet juice, was the first drink i tried and my favorite of the night – i just love pickles so much! the bites were all delicious, but being the sucker that i am for meatballs and soup, my standout favorite (i may have had four or five) was claudine’s meatball soup.
a day on set with square one organic rye based vodka. i’m already a big fan of square one vodka, and have been ever since my first sip of square one cucumber. it was a real treat to get to assist on this shoot, meet the owner, and enjoy some cocktails. all four of their products are stand-out, ingredients are all organic, sourced directly from farmers, and their distiller is certified organic.
