First up is Audrey Johns’ Lose Weight by Eating Cookbook. Obligatory disclaimer: I was provided with a copy of the cookbook

If you’re a longtime reader of the Gourmez, you’re familiar with my tenuous relationship with gin. The verdurous herbs, with that alcoholic kick, often prove too much for my palate. Last spring, on a visit to their Alameda distillery, I discovered St. George’s Terroir gin, only the second gin I’ve ever truly enjoyed (TOPO’s Piedmont

A brand-new site, and my first post is on something brand-new to me: a cookbook review! I often say the Gourmez isn’t a recipe blog—except for cocktails, because who doesn’t enjoy a good cocktail discovery? But when I was offered a review copy (obligatory disclaimer: that means free!) of Heather Pace’s Sweetly Raw Desserts, I

I’m doing two reviews in one today! My friends over at TOPO Distillery have debuted their organic Eight Oak Whiskey, and they were kind enough to send me a bottle for review. This fortuitous gift also provided me with the perfect opportunity to test out a set of Sipping Stones, soapstone cubes designed to provide a

Last week, I stumbled across this old familiar Christmas friend at the Trader Joe’s checkout line. And it reminded me that I’d made a prize-winning cocktail inspired by the chocolate orange just two holiday seasons ago. That was me enjoying the spoils of my victory. Frankly, I’m sure anyone could have won with this as

I have a pair of cocktails to share with you today. Each features the trio of pisco, orange, and a Royal Rose simple syrup. As you may recall, Royal Rose sent me a sampler of their organic, small-batch syrups a while back (meaning it was free!). I’ve been slowly sharing new cocktail recipes that feature

Kahlua Midnight

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Kahlua Midnight Mexico 35% ABV Kahlua Midnight strikes me as the serious older brother of the regular Kahlua we know and love. It’s a mix of rum and black coffee liqueur, and that appeals to me because I don’t take cream or sugar with my coffee, never mind that it still has sugar in there

RumChata

RumChata Wisconsin 13.5% ABV RumChata is a liqueur coming from the Agave Loco brand, and you can bet I squealed when I saw it on the shelf. Why? Because I love horchata, and an horchata made for imbibing sounded perfect to me. My expert background in foodie Spanish means I can translate their horchata con

Clay offers a selection of recipes midweek, then orders can be placed for the next week. Then he purchases the ingredients from Whole
