Episode 77 – Julie Lanzillo – Pairings Cigar Bar

This episode features Julie Lanzillo of Pairings Cigar Bar.

In 2014 Julie, Debbie and Gary dined at one of their favorite spots.  They were going to a show as they lamented that it would be nice to enjoy a cigar after dinner.  They longed for the summer and the opportunity to smoke on the back deck where they could savor a cigar or two.  It was December and there was snow on the ground.  They discussed the possibilities but there is nothing in the area.  “A cigar bar in the Media area, that’s an interesting idea”, proclaimed Julie.  As Debbie says, “the universe doesn’t make mistakes”.  On October 21, 2016 they opened the doors.  In that time they have created an anchor for the community.  A place for the seasoned cigar aficionado and the novice alike.  Enjoy a fine spirit and pair it with your favorite or something new.

Episode 51 – Sourland Mountain Spirits – Ray and Sage Disch

This episode features Ray and Sage Disch of Sourland Mountain Spirits.  “Be a maker, not a taker.”We truly had a fantastic time sitting down with Ray and Sage.  Back in the early 90’s Ray was inspired by a story that he heard on the radio about a husband and wife who worked as commodity traders in Chicago.  They left their high paying jobs to open a craft brewery in Chi-town.  Leading the charge and laying the groundwork, Ray helped to sponsor legislation to help to change the laws for New Jersey breweries.   In 1995 Triumph Brewing Company introduced craft beer to the masses in Princeton, NJ.  Fast forward to 2015 Ray along with his wife Erica made the decision to open a craft distillery in their hometown of Hopewell.  It is a family affair at their farm distillery.  What you hear is that Ray brings people together.  He builds teams and develops an environment of creativity and excellence.  He shares the fascinating journey to create their award winning Gin and their portfolio of first class spirits.  Sage discusses what’s next for the distillery and how he is helping to guide them onto a bigger stage.

National Margarita Day

Today is National Margarita Day! The margarita is a cocktail that consists of tequila, triple sec and lime or lemon juice. It is one of the most common tequila-based cocktails served in the United States.

Margaritas can be served on the rocks (shaken with ice), frozen (blended with ice), or straight up (without ice).

A standard Margarita recipe is :

  • 1 ounce tequila
  • Dash of Triple Sec
  • Juice of 1/2 lime or lemon

Pour over crushed ice, stir.  Rub the rim of a stem glass with rind of lemon or lime, spin in salt—pour, and sip.  (Wikipedia)

Bartender specialists have gotten creative mixing dried herbs, infused sugars and exotic salts to intensify both the flavor of the cocktail and
the presentation of the glass. A few of the more popular flavors include Strawberry Margarita, Mango Margarita, Limeade Margarita, Watermelon Margarita, Pomegranate Margarita, Raspberry Margarita and Blackberry Margarita.

With the 1977 release of Jimmy Buffett’s song “Margaritaville”
margaritas began to grow in popularity.

Pay tribute and honor the margarita on this special day by visiting your favorite distillery, restaurant or just by making your own at home.
