As team Salt & Wind, we see eye-to-eye on most things; really, there are few things that divide us. But, of those things, nothing divdes us as much as how to make a classic Cadillac Margarita Cocktail!
You’ve probably noticed that we’re big fans of brunch — it’s one of our favorite ways to celebrate the weekend. As such, we’re always searching out new brunch cocktail ideas, preferably something simple, sip-able, yet standout like this Sparkling Sage Grapefruit Cocktail.
We’re always fans of any and every reason for a celebration, but here we are: in that shoulder season between the holidays when there’s not a ton to celebrate. Of course, we’re not going to let that stop us so we say gather your friends and just celebrate celebrations. For the occasion, we’re teaming up with Hangar 1® Vodka to help kickoff Vodka Picking Season and to share our favorite brunch cocktail of the moment.
It's time to talk Martinis. Our key to mastering holiday entertaining is to put a festive twist on a classic cocktail, perferably one that can be just as easily make for a party of ten as a party of two.
Can we all agree on something? We travel for food first and foremost. Sure, the sites, resorts, beaches, and people are just as amazing but, if you’re like me, you travel to taste a place. I mean, that’s why you’re here on Salt & Wind, right? Because, like us, you’re always in search of the best meal a place has to offer and how to recreate it back home.
With all the beaches, Redwoods, and Golden Gate, it can sometimes slip our minds that California has a crazy amazing wine country, too. But come August and September, it's hard to imagine doing anything but spending an afternoon in the lush vineyards plotting our second lives as winemakers. Evening harvest dinners with copious friends and wine and the backdrop of a rustic-chic barn up against a California sunset? We'll take two, thank you very much.
If your neck of the woods is unbearably hot, we feel you. Triple digits can get miserable if you don’t have a plan to beat the heat. If you're cooling off in the pool, under the air conditioning, or just standing in your unmentionables with the freezer door open, we've rounded up a collection of drinks that will make the dog days of summer way more doable.
Picturesque scenery, local cuisine, and endless rows of vineyards: no, I'm not talking of Bordeaux or Napa but the Prince Edward County wine scene. A short hour drive from Toronto, this wine region (aka The County) lined along Lake Ontario has become a go-to weekend getaway in my neck of the woods.
Look, I don’t know if you have been to Brazil, but I felt it high time we discuss the best thing to come out of Brazil besides Caetano Veloso – the caipirinha. Though the original caipirinha is a delicious mash of limes and cane sugar, I thought I would add a brunch-appropriate twist, with this S...
My best friend is about to marry a drummer for an up-and-coming SF-based indie band, Geographer. We joke that she finally gets to live out our angst-y teenage daydream of being band aids, attending shows, and tossing about cheesy phrases like, "I'm with the band."
A simple recipe for the most popular Italian cocktail of them all: The Aperol Spritz. This wine-based cocktail from Northern Italy has a slightly bitter and sweet flavor with hints of orange, herbs, and rhubarb. Here is our recipe and tips for making a great Aperol Spritz every time!
This cocktai is a total wild card, which is all the more reason you should try it out. Tamarind is one of those flavors I use for Thai food or vinaigrettes but almost never in cocktails. I combined it with some pear juice, and Prosecco, for a drink that's a total wild card but also a total winner.
