Hospice du Rhone Update

Sondra, John and Amy, our Wine Buyer at the girl & the fig, just returned from a fabulous, albeit slightly rainy, weekend in Paso Robles where they attended one of our most favorite annual events: Hospice du Rhone.  If you’re not familiar with the event, Hospice du Rhone is a three day long gathering of international Rhone wine producers and enthusiasts and is packed full of seminars, tastings, special events, and a live auction.

In case you missed it, here are some highlights from this year’s event courtesy of Sondra’s Twitter feed:

* 1st seminar about to start.  Picture. 9:09 AM May 1st from Tweetie

* Aftermath from Rhone lunch.  Picture. 6:13 PM May 1st from Tweetie

* People are filing in for the Riedel tasting. About to taste compare the glassware with great wine.  Picture. 9:06 AM May 2nd from Tweetie

* Translate messages of wine to the senses. Well said. Riedel.  Picture. 9:20 AM May 2nd from Tweetie

You should also check out Hospice du Rhone’s Twitter feed for more highlights as they happened.

Be sure to view our Facebook page for more pictures from the weekend and the Hospice du Rhone website for more information on the organization.

We’ll see you there next year!

Featured Cocktail: The Aviation

This month we will highlight the classic cocktail, The Aviation. John Wilson, the day bartender at the girl & the fig, introduced me to this drink a few months ago and it has become one of my new favorites.

1.5 oz of London dry gin (I chose Beefeaters)
.5 oz of Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
juice of half a lemon
splash of simple syrup* (.25 oz)

Shake all the ingredients and pour into a well chilled martini glass.  Garnish with a lemon twist.

*Simple syrup is equal parts sugar and water boiled lightly then cooled.

This cocktail is light and refresing, a nice balance between tart and sweet and has a great aroma that should really be experienced.

Hope you enjoy one of my favorites.
