DRINKS I like 'em simple + savory. Steer clear of sugary concoctions, syrups. To win my heart muddle fresh fruit, herbs, maybe a pepper?

A glass of wine at Lakewood's The Wine Therapist, which recently moved to a new location across the street from its old spot. Love the new place! They always have a great, wide-ranging selection of wine. And you can taste until you find what you are looking for. Very knowledgable staff. I like my wine very dry.

cocktail with cilantro seeds
cocktail with cilantro seeds

Yumz. A simple, summer cocktail I made the other day. I had some cilantro flowers fresh from Good Earth Organic with seeds on them. Popped some Tanqueray Rangpur gin into a shaker with seeds, ice and a little club soda. Shake shake shake. Into glass & more club soda added. Seeds in pic for effect - I strained them to drink. Though, they are edible and tasty but the skin gets caught in teeth!
