The event turned out successfully! I have been waiting to share these recipes with you for a few months. My cocktail was going to be this pineapple basil-infused simple syrup concoction and I thought, well this doesn’t quite fit the bill for me! Instead, the drink turned out to be a refreshingly sweet, floral bubbly beverage. Feminine and light for summertime, just as I would drink year-round. The Perfect Puree of Napa Valley and Pomp and Whimsy Gin in partnership with The Women’s Cocktail Collective were awesome enough to offer their product for my creations.
I was even asked to create another recipe using what I chose to be the Pear Puree from The Perfect Puree of Napa. With that, I created a ricotta pear crostini with smoked sea salt and candied ginger. A little zing and a little ping! And of course, everything was topped with a micro mum flower.
The event comprised of female-driven brands like Babbo, Felidia, and Lupa Osteria who was tossing fresh tonnarelli in cacio e pepe. Dinner reservations were made there shortly after my first bite!
