Winter Solstice Cosmopolitan

Ingredients
  • 2 1/4 oz (large side of the jigger) Picker's blood orange vodka
  • 1/2 oz ginger liqueur (Domaine de Canton)
  • 1/2 oz pomegranate liqueur (Pama)
  • 1 oz cranberry juice
  • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
  • lime slice, pomegranate & cranberries for garnish
Preparation
  • In a shaker with several ice cubes, add vodka, liqueurs, juices and shake well.
  • Strain into a martini glass or other glass of your choosing.
  • Garnish with all or one of the following: lime slice, pomegranate seeds and fresh cranberries.
Comments
  • Blood orange, ginger, pomegranate and cranberries are all flavors that I look forward to in the winter. This is a great way to combine the best of the season and enjoy the extra darkness!
  • This cocktail can be tweaked easily by switching out some ingredients for your favorites. 
  • Once you can get your hands on those fresh blood oranges later this winter, squeeze some of those to switch with the lime juice!
  • Try making a ginger syrup to use in place of the ginger liqueur or use pomegranate juice instead of the liqueur.
  • Regardless of your variation, we will be serving these daylight or dark by the fireplace here at the Mill. Cheers!

Grilled Summer Vegetable Salad


Ingredients
  • 1qt grilled vegetables, cut into bite size pieces (asparagus, squash, zucchini, peppers, onion, okra, corn, etc.)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves
  • 1T honey
  • 1/2 fresh tomato
  • 1T extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
Preparation
  • Grill, cool, and chop fresh veggies of your choosing and place in serving bowl. Bite size pieces are best.
  • Place lemon, basil, honey, tomato, olive oil, salt and pepper into blender or food processor.
  • Puree until smooth.
  • Add to veggies and toss well to incorporate.
  • Serve at room temperature or slightly warm.
Comments
  • Take care not to over cook the veggies. Looking for the grilled flavor but not cooked all the way through.
  • Home grown tomato will be best in the dressing if possible.
  • Serve with your next cookout! There seems to always be a little heat left on the grill to throw a few veggies on after the steaks have cooked. 
  • Quick and easy, but a great way to enjoy all those summer veggies. Thanks to Chef Jesse for sharing!
