Jeff Berry, aka Beachbum Berry, is the author of several cocktail books, including Potions of the Caribbean: 500 Years of Tropical Drinks and the People Behind Them, and owner of Beachbum Berry’s Latitude 29 in New Orleans. On his beachbumberry.com website he writes, “A proper Mai Tai has a deep amber hue, because it’s the liquor that should dominate the drink, not the sweeteners.”
Fleur de Bees, the signature cocktail for the 7th Annual Best of Taste Bash, combines Barr Hill Gin, mango puree, lemon juice, honey, ginger & mint syrup, making for a delightfully smooth and refreshing creation to celebrate all of the 2017 Best of TASTE winners.
This flavorful dish makes the most of summer and late fall vegetables. Use any kind of ravioli; spinach goes well with the lamb. The ratatouille and yogurt may be prepared in advance and stored in an airtight container, refrigerated.
