Here’s my take on each of the guests:
Friday the 13th Part II!!!
Finlandia Vodka, Strawberries, Basil, Jalapeño Syrup, Lime
Milagro Tequila Blanco, Lime Juice, Chili Syrup & Regatta Ginger Beer
Gran Sierpe Pisco, St. Germain, Lychee, Orange, Lychee Syrup
The cocktails were really nice…similar to La Diva’s cocktails for my small bites, BIG DRINKS class that utilizes flavored sugar syrups for customized full flavors.
Here’s what else we had, straight from the menu with my comments in parentheses:
Valdeon Blue cheese, Marcona Almonds (Classic, comforting and melt-in-your-mouth delicious)
Spinach, Feta OR Jamon Serrano, Manchego (We had the ham and cheese, melty-cheesy-crispy-crunchy-fried-goodness!)
Arroz Negro (Black Rice) (Calamari was incredibly tender grilled over creamy black rice. Must try making this myself one day…)
Long Stem Chokes, Lemon-Coriander Dipping (Again, if you fry anything it’s good but to fry something I love like artichokes? DIVINE, darlings! And the mayo dipping sauce was decadent!)
BBQ Eel, Apples, Soy, Apple Butter (Honestly, La Diva got a bit “left out” on this dish. I didn’t have any marrow on my bone! While everyone else was “oohing” and “aahing,” La Diva looked on, still not sure what the whole bone marrow fascination is all about!)
Spicy Chocolate Dip (TO DIE FOR! Who doesn’t like fried cake with a warm and spicy, chili chocolate sauce?)
Rum Sauteéd Bananas & Figs, Fig Walnut Ice Cream (OMG, figs n cream n rum n bananas n nuts….mmmm)
The fabu CFM choos hubby bought me for our anniversary! 4.5 inch heels…..and Diva didn’t fall once!
