New Port Beach (Perfect Meal Today) 3/4/20—This beautiful Newport Beach evening proved to be the perfect opportunity to launch into Spring 2020 to Make Memories Organically with Prairie Organic Spirits. Through Prairie Organic Spirits’ “SPIRIT OF CHANGE FUND” the #1 Organic Spirit in the USA is dedicating 1% of sales back to fund the next generation of farmers to encourage and support growing organically. Every purchase of Causemo benefits this program in education and scholarships through the Rodale Institute.
Media guests were invited to celebrate the partnership of Prairie Organic Spirits and True Food Kitchen (TFK) with innovative craft cocktails and beautifully styled, sumptuous food offerings.
The sparkling ruby red Causemo caused quite a buzz with comments like “it’s so beautiful”, “I love the tantalizing red color”, and “this drink has just the right amount of sweetness”. The eye-catching drink took just a few minutes for the very adept bartender to prepare using Prairie Organic Vodka, Fresh Lime Juice, Prickly Pear Syrup and Fresh Pineapple Juice (see recipe below). Served next was the light and refreshing Prairie Organic Cucumber Gin with Grapefruit Juice and cucumber slice – perfect for a 2020 spring drink.
Recently, customers at Total Wine gave Prairie Organic Vodka a Five Star rating.
Another accolade is the Gold Medal – San Francisco Spirits Competition. Best Craft Vodka Distillery – USA Today Readers
Sumptuous small bites from the TFK kitchen included guacamole dollop on chips and elegantly thin-crust pizza squares followed by a buffet of sliders and a panoply of wonderfully carved vegetables served with several piquant dipping sauces.
Guests’ first few bites of the sliders produced some puzzled expressions. We couldn’t identify the ingredients used for the patties until one taste-savvy gentleman standing next to me said “The patty isn’t meat, it is minced beets!” The beet sliders were as delicious as they were surprising. The minced fresh beets put a welcome twist on the traditional hamburger slider. This meat-free burger was packed with other surprises such as guacamole, a finely sliced/shaved slaw served on a freshly baked bun.
Guest Host and Speaker Gennifer Rose walked us through a mixology course.
At the end of the demonstrations Gennifer had one more “rabbit to pull out of the hat”: a new bar accessory machine that “printed photos/graphics” on top of the foam of the cocktail in the glass. Now that’s a pretty impressive and fun trick.
Here’s the recipe as promised:
2.0 oz. Prairie Organic Vodka
.75 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
.75 oz. Prickly Pear Syrup
.75 oz. Fresh Pineapple Juice
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled coupe. Enjoy, organically.
