December 13th, 4-7 p.m.
Vanguard Properties
The Barlow  6790 McKinley Street #120

Reconnect with your Slow Food friends and family over locally produced, globally inspired cocktails and bites provided by Chef Jenni Emory and the SFRR Leadership Team.

Darlene Hayes, who blogs at allintocider, will demonstrate cider cocktails from her new book, Cider Cocktails: Another Bite of the Apple, and serve the Dr Walker cocktail (p. 24 of her book) with local persimmon puree, West of Kentucky, a bourbon whiskey from Sonoma County Distilling, honey, and Troy Cider, a tart, dry cider from Half Pint Ciders.

Other cocktails made with Black Jack 21 cider, a Gravenstein cider made by ACE, and booze from Spirit Works Distillery (their Vodka, Rye Whiskey, and Sloe Gin) will be available too, all included in the admission.

Please add to the spread by bringing your favorite holiday finger food, sweet or savory to share. Darlene Hayes will bring the cherry cider chutney timbale (p. 46 of her book) with Cherry Cider from Red Branch Cider in Sunnyvale.

We’ll also hear about our chapter’s connections to the global Slow Food Community in honor of Terra Madre Day.

And as an added bonus… Spirit Works is conveniently located right next door and  has offered to host a special after hours tour and tasting for those who want to imbibe a little more of the holiday spirit! ($20 add on). The tour starts at 4 p.m. and then you can join the party after.

At Spirit Works, the milling, mashing, fermenting, stripping out of the alcohol with the still, and finishing runs through a 21-plate batch rectification column are all done in-house, much of it by hand.  Read this story about the distillery at Tales of the Cocktails.
