2. COCKTAIL PAIRINGS
In “The Evolution of the ‘Culinary Cocktail’”, Punch explores the burgeoning partnership between the kitchen and restaurant bartenders while investigating boozy drinks that are meant to be paired with your dinner.
3. TAKE TWO OF THESE
It seems each year, we learn of another reason to enjoy wine in moderation (besides its status as the perfect complement to a meal, of course). In “Red Wine Consumption Could Fight Dementia,” Wine Spectator reports on a small study out of California that found the grapes in wine could slow processes that lead to diseases like Alzheimer’s. Cheers to that.
4. BBQ VS. GRILLING
Seems like it’s going to be an early Spring, so this super in-depth look at what real BBQ means from Modello contributor Corey Mintz is well-timed. Check out “Get a ‘cue” to find out why most people confuse BBQ with grilling.
5. SOUTHERN TREAT
After the Veneto region of Italy, where Modello is produced, New Orleans is certainly the place we associate with conviviality and living the good life. So cheers to Food52 for introducing us to the Ramos Gin Fizz, “The New Orleans Brunch Cocktail That Can’t Be Tamed.”
