On a clear, cold winter evening, underneath fairy lights twinkling from the bare branches of tree-lined streets on Atlanta’s super chic Westside, fourteen ladies in lipstick and high heels kicked off SuthinGirl’s SuthinSoirées with The Winter Wine & Dine!
Hidden behind a pair of heavy velvet drapes deep inside Cooks & Soldiers is an art-filled room where the restaurant’s coveted Chef’s Table faces out onto the energy and excitement of Atlanta’s bustling Westside. Every inch of that long table was covered in small plates of food inspired by Spain’s Basque cuisine. We oohed and ahhed and said things like, “That’s gorgeous! Oh, wow! Look at that! There’s so much food! We’ll never be able to finish it all!” Famous last words!
2 oz Silver Tequila
3/4 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz Fresh Lime juice
1/2 oz Cocchi Americano Rosa (Italian aperitif wine)
1 oz Fresh Grapefruit Juice
Club Soda to Fill
Serve Over Ice and Garnish with a Lime
Some of SuthinGirl’s Cooks & Soldiers faves…
Chuletón: 1 kg. bone-in rib eye, Tempranillo bordelaise, ensalada verde (SuthinGirl Tip: Order the Chuletón as soon as you are seated…it takes about an hour to prepare!)
Fideuà ‘Paella:’ Georgia white shrimp, Mediterranean mussels, sobrassada, fideuà, saffron panna cotta
Bikini: White American grilled cheese, Jamón Ibérico, black truffle, white bread (I love the irony of the name. Cause you ain’t gonna be wearing a bikini right after eating a plate of these, lemme tell you. But oh myyyyyy, they are so worth it.)
There’s no more wonderful winter activity than a cozy wine tasting with your best girlfriends and a master sommelier who is also happens to also be a gorgeous girlfriend!! Perrine Prieur, French native and owner of Atlanta’s award-winning Perrine’s Wine Shop, was our hostess for a VIP tasting tour around the grapes of California and France. Her shop is as warm and inviting as she is, and filled with gifts and goodies to accompany all the delicious bottles for sale.
Sweet Oliver has a nose for wine. *wink
These girls are my everything!!!
I went home with a few bottles of the 2014 Cane & Fable Sauvignon Blanc…my fave from the tasting!
These clever little pens are a dream come true for anyone who likes to drink their wine with friends! We had so much fun penning sassy nicknames onto our crystal stemware with Wine Glass Writer markers. They come in gorgeous metallics like gold and silver, and in an array of solid colors…there’s literally one to match every décor and personality!
Write your name or something fun on your glass and you’re freeee! Free to mingle, chat, dance…it’s easy to find your glass again when you’ve made it your own with Wine Glass Writer! And the next morning, no headaches for you! Wine Glass Writer ink is non-toxic and washes off easily with a sponge and soapy water.
