What We're Drinking



With the James Bond movie Spectre being released today, no time could be better to drink Bollinger. The most suave spy in the world has been sipping on Bollinger since Moonraker in 1979. While we can’t all drive a fully loaded, customized machine gun having Aston Martin, we certainly can chill down a bottle of Bolli! The 2004 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne ($109) is as good as Champagne gets; all barrel fermented and full of masculine, Pinot Noir power and high class elegance. We even have a few bottles of the limited 2009 Bollinger "James Bond 007" Brut Champagne ($195) in stock for the diehard fan of Bond & Champagne!

A Thanksgiving Cocktail

Photo courtesy of White on Rice CoupleLet's face it, Thanksgiving can be a little stressful. All that traveling, all that cooking, all that family. So why not warm everyone up with a cocktail or two? And of course, since this is Thanksgiving, shouldn't that cocktail be based on the quintessential American spirit: Kentucky Bourbon?

The Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon, which is currently on sale for $19.99, comes from America's oldest distilling site and has been named Wine Enthusiast and Malt Advocate Distillery of the Year numerous times since 2000. The whiskey is smooth, with mellow toffee notes, and is perfect for mixing.

If you can get your hands on some fresh tangerines, I'd highly recommend mixing up the Kentucky Sidecar proffered up by the White on Rice Couple, but if they're scarce, I'd mix up the Grapefruit Moon from the Cocktail Chronicles. (And, frankly, if you could work some Tom Waits into your Thanksgiving feast, you'd be my new hero.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We'll be back next week.

Talking Turkey: An Ex-Pat Thanksgiving

Editor's Note: Everybody celebrates Thanksgiving just a little bit differently, which is why we've been hitting up some of our winemaking friends for some of their Thanksgiving recipes and wine pairings, which we'll be featuring over the next week. To me, no Thanksgiving meal is more intriguing than that of an American abroad--with all the inherent tweaks to incorporate local food customs and wines. Michael Affatato of Bordeaux's La Gatte was quick to share his family's tradition. And while Michael prefers older Bordeaux at his Thanksgiving table, we think his wines, with all their classic Bordeaux character, would make excellent pairings, too.

Boozy Confections

Dear Sprinkles,

This is the hardest letter I've had to write, so I'm just going to get straight to the point. After countless carrot, red velvet and coconut cupcakes I'm leaving you. You see, I'm in love. And this time my sweets are spiked.
