Mark and Lynn take back the holidays for the adults with Barefoot Bubbly...

Barefoot Wine has consistently been our favorite day in day out wine throughout the year and the holiday season is no exception with the 2011 Barefoot Bubbly Brut Cuvee release a great offering  for the holidays with an unbelievable price point (10.00) and great, festive flavors including jasmine and apple as well as a crisp finish.   This can be enjoyed throughout the entire season au naturel but for a great crowd pleasing cocktail try the Jingle Bellini-directions below

Jingle Bellini
4 oz. Barefoot Bubbly Brut Cuvee 1 oz. raspberry liqueur 1 oz. raspberry puree (muddled berries) Thyme sprig
  • Muddle fresh raspberries to create berry puree
  • Combine puree with Barefoot Bubbly and raspberry liqueur in a cocktail shaker with ice
  • Roll contents, then strain into chilled champagne flute
  • Garnish with fresh raspberry and thyme sprig

(Who says the holidays are for kids?)

The Paintings at Painters in Brookhaven, NY

Besides being one of our favorite restaurants week in and week out, Painters in Brookhaven, NY has one of the most eclectic collections of art on Long Island.  The variety is astounding and to the place's credit they are as willing to exhibit something of questionable taste as they are something sublime (sometimes there is some overlap with regard to this).  In any event, it gives the restaurant one of the most distinctive "looks" of any place in Suffolk.
