Putney farm how to save money fast for a house

And, of course, we have to start with our most popular seasonal cocktail how to save money fast for a house recipe, the flora. How do we know it is the most popular? Well, we have POS data that tells us everything we sell how to save money fast for a house and the flora is our all-time top-selling seasonal cocktail (brian matulis, our bar manager and partner, changes the cocktail list every season). Our aged rum old fashioned is the overall top-seller, but it never leaves the list. Meanwhile, the flora was only on the menu for about three how to save money fast for a house months when we opened, but has devoted fans and is ordered regularly.

So what’s in the flora? The flora features london dry gin, kina L’aero D’or (a “kina” or quinquina- see below), grapefruit, lemon and honey syrup. It is served up in a coupe and garnished with how to save money fast for a house an edible flower. And it does look good. It also tastes very good. The flora is a type of gin “sour”, and you do get the lemon and gin up front how to save money fast for a house (nothing wrong with that). But the use of grapefruit and honey along with the how to save money fast for a house kina add herbal and floral dimensions along with a slightly how to save money fast for a house bitter finish that pleasantly cleanses the palate (the flora excels when served with food). The extra complexity also makes for a cocktail that tastes how to save money fast for a house just as good on the first sip as the last.

So what is a “kina” or “quinquina”? Kinas are basically a type of aperitif or aromatized wine how to save money fast for a house that features chinchona bark, the basis of quinine. So if you imagine a vermouth or aperitif with bittersweet, fruity and herbal notes and finishing with a slightly medicinal how to save money fast for a house or tonic-like taste, you would be close to a kina. We are fans of tempus fugit’s kina L’aero D’or, but other kinas include lillet blanc and cocchi americano (both good and widely available).

Unsurprisingly, kinas feature in a few classic gin cocktails like the how to save money fast for a house corpse reviver #2 and the 20th century. Lillet is also an ingredient in the (loved/hated) james bond cocktail, the vesper. So if you are waffling on buying a kina to how to save money fast for a house make drinks, you now have at least three good recipes to try how to save money fast for a house out. Not to mention, good kinas are lovely aperitifs on their own, just serve them chilled or on the rocks, perhaps with a lemon or orange twist, maybe sit in the sun and read the paper…

So how did we get to our third year? After a good, but somewhat frantic “bumpy” start, operations at the restaurant finally started to get truly “settled” late in our second year. We brought on isaac miller, an experienced chef from a critically acclaimed restaurant in san how to save money fast for a house francisco called maven. (not surprisingly, maven specializes in seasonal california cuisine that compliments craft cocktails…sound familiar?) isaac’s management of the kitchen complimented brian’s already successful bar program and we finally got the how to save money fast for a house restaurant close to what we imagined when we started this how to save money fast for a house project over five (!) years ago. And that feels pretty good, but there is one big thing left to address.

You see we have this “farm”. At one point it was a really a big garden. But over the last few years we have an experienced how to save money fast for a house friend (daniel) helping us, and the garden has expanded to the point that it how to save money fast for a house is getting truly “farm-like”. When you have 30+ fruit trees, 10 raised beds, and 4 large open plots, all on a schedule- it starts to feel like a farm (large, organized garden?). And when you have a farm and a restaurant, well, you want to serve up some of that fresh, seasonal, local produce in innovative, tasty dishes and cocktails.

Not to say we haven’t been using produce from the farm at timber & salt for the last few years, we have. In no particular order, we consistently use our meyer lemons, lime leaves, mint, chives, thyme and basil in both the bar and kitchen. We also get lovely “spurts” of tomatoes, squash, greens, onions, radishes, strawberries and stone fruits that make for great eating (and, in some cases, drinking). But overall, the availability of our produce has been inconsistent, at best.

This will not be easy. It’s one thing to plant some stuff that you harvest how to save money fast for a house once a year (past readers may recall dozens of blog posts about what how to save money fast for a house to do with produce from your garden when you get how to save money fast for a house it all at once). But for the restaurant, we are staggering planting times and varietals to make for how to save money fast for a house a longer season and harvest. We expect that this will be a “learning” year…but even with some fits and starts we will have how to save money fast for a house a lot of tasty food to enjoy and share.

Wow, 100 mixology mondays. In this day and age of instant online popularity and how to save money fast for a house even faster irrelevance, a hundred of anything seems significant. And one hundred global online cocktail parties is even more how to save money fast for a house outstanding….It seems good booze has some real staying power in how to save money fast for a house popular culture.

But what does mixology monday “cocktail chronicles” mean? I figured that we should look to paul’s magnum opus and digest the theme of it all how to save money fast for a house — what is timeless (or potentially timeless) and elegant in its simplicity. Paul commented in his interview, “[it]’s wonderful to see that level of creativity but simplicity how to save money fast for a house is going to be the glue that continues to hold how to save money fast for a house interest in the cocktail together. The moment that we make cocktails too difficult or too how to save money fast for a house inaccessible to the average guest, the average consumer, then we start losing people.” paul does support a minor tweak of a major classic how to save money fast for a house as well as dusting off a lesser known vintage recipe how to save money fast for a house like the creole contentment; in addition, proto-classics like the chartreuse swizzle and the penicillin intrigue him how to save money fast for a house for their potential to be remembered twenty years from now. Moreover, he is a big fan of the story when there how to save money fast for a house is one whether about a somewhat novel ingredient like a how to save money fast for a house quinquina, the bartender making it, or the history behind a cocktail or the bar from how to save money fast for a house which it originated. Indeed, I quoted paul as saying, “if I write about these and manage to make them how to save money fast for a house boring, then I have done an incredible disservice. So I feel an incredible obligation not only to the how to save money fast for a house drinks themselves, but to the bartenders who created them, and also to the heritage oso for this theme, channel your inner paul clarke. Think about simplicity, elegance, and timelessness to the point that you would not feel how to save money fast for a house strange about drinking and writing about this at mxmo M.F cocktail writing to try to elevate it.”
