t says:  I know it’s been a while since we’ve had a substantive post.  Sorry!  I forgot to put up our “we’re going on break” post that we typically do every year around this time – oops!

In any case, I promise that we’ll get back up and running – we’ve just been busy eating at the same places we’ve always eaten (e.g. Talula’s Garden at New Year’s … they totally crushed it), drinking wines with the usual crew (look for our twitter sidebar off to the right, coming soon!), and working hard (booooo!).

We wish you all a great new year.  Bring it on, 2014!

the entire adsz cast

P.S.  In the meantime, amuse yourself with this mixed drink recipe I found elsewheres online … basically, if I could drink bubbles, I’d totally be drinking this:

Chocolate Black Velvet
(From Mast Brother’s Chocolate: A Family Cookbook.)

1/2 ounce chocolate syrup (see below*).
1 ounce stout beer
3 ounces champagne
1 dash Orange bitters
1 twist of orange zest

-Pour chocolate syrup into champagne glass
-add stout.
-pour champagne slowly over the back of a metal spoon into the glass
-add bitters
-garnish with orange zest.

*Chocolate Syrup
In a saucepan, mix 2 cups water, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cocoa powder, 1 ounce dark chocolate, and the seeds  scraped from 1/3 of a vanilla bean. Bring it to a boil, then take off the heat, strain, and let cool.

a says: You make the syrup, I can bring the rest. And I’m pretty sure we’d all drink this, even v!
