In the Rock Bottom

November 16, 2014

In 9 days we will be heading to the One of a Kind show in Toronto to set up our Studio50 booth and this concrete hand display which will showcase to all the holiday shoppers, "Yes, the flask lifts out of the concrete base!" We thought we better test it out before "hand" and decide what would be filling it up.  Since the response to the sangria picture posted on our Facebook Page was huge what better beverage to "grasp"  how cool the rock bottom vessel is than...Sangria. Here is a very easy and oh so yummy recipe for a Cranberry, Rosemary White Christmas Sangria on the cooking stoned site, by Jerry James Stone.

As Jerry mentions in his post, the very "Martha Stewart" step of dipping your rosemary in sugar for that frosted effect is totally worth it...very impressive.

We opted not to add the club soda to our mix because we thought the bubbles would interfere with the melt in your mouth raw, vegan, lactose free, organic key lime fudge and dark cranberry bark we were savoring from forever chocolate.  WARNING the key lime fudge is highly addictive and paired with this sangria may cause over consumption.

A simple and perfect paring for the upcoming holidays.

The knife block is a quintessential piece that lives on the counter top of most kitchens. Usually its function outweighs its form… a utilitarian object that accompanies knife sets. You have to imagine that manufacturers use them merely to sell knife sets.
