So I lost my camera on Friday night. Thankfully, I found it tonight, wedged between the passenger seat of the car and the door! Thank goodness, because me without camera = sadness.
Bill’s drink special: Balcones Flip. Made with Balcones Rumble (distilled from honey, figs and sugar in Waco), allspice dram, lime, bitters and a whole farm egg. So delicious.
Justin’s drink of choice: Vieux Carre, made with Rittenhouse Rye, Pierre Ferrand Ambre, sweet vermouth, benedectine & bitters.
A little gift from the kitchen: crostini with beet tzatziki… perfectly beety and delicous… and such a wonderful color!
Fried anchovy-stuffed olives (of course).
Tapas special for the night: polenta croquettes with piquillo peppers and a caper aioli. This reminded me of suppli, as the polenta was soft and creamy on the inside.
Chorizo, Leek & Petit Basque Coca with fried egg (my favorite).
Soup special: an amazing seafood bisque… I can’t remember what was in it now, but it was amazing.
Dessert: Vanilla mousse tart with morello cherries and a cherry-rose water sorbet… yum.
The Manzanal: Laird’s Straight, Nux walnut liqueur, maple, golden raisin & bitters. So perfect for a chilly fall night.
Another perfect night at FINO. :)
