A Toast to Sea Inspired Libations

Coastal living invokes thoughts of bathing in the sun and times spent swimming in the surf of ocean water.  Standing in line for ice cream, staying up late to admire the stars and wearing a hat most days to shade from the sun are all part and parcel of summer on Nantucket.  However, not all coastal conditions are created equal and neither are the libations that come from them. Sea-shanty worthy drinks are an expression of their watery sources, no matter how far and distant in between.  Take a liquid adventure as you discover with Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie a handful of libations worthy of your next oceanic experience. AN ORGANIC OCEAN You are what you eat, or drink in this case, and wouldn’t it be nice to know that you are putting only the best ingredients in your body while also being eco-friendly.

You’ve heard the phrase before, “Go Big or Go Home!” Yes, the person who walks into the party with a large size format of wine definitely gets the host’s attention, along with all the other guests, and for the right reasons. But what if you want to drink that bottle of wine you brought as well? When bringing wine as a hostess gift, you can never be sure if your ‘gift’ will be consumed that night or just tucked away into the wine cabinet with all the other bottles that have been brought for such occasions. Often times, your host will already have a theme in mind for the event and their beverage selections procured ahead of time in order to fall into suit. With all this in mind, you may decide to save that bottle of wine you want to sample for an evening when you are guaranteed to get a taste. But what can you bring as a...Read More >
