Move over margarita. There's a new drink in my life. It's a fine mix of Nolet’s gin, kumquat syrup and lemon juice in St-Germain elderflower liqueur-rinsed coupe glass. Cheers to @FSSantaBarbara!
Our foodie friends recommended it and we wholeheartedly agree. The Shake Shack at Madison Square Park in New York City turns out some awesome burgers.
Sure. Around lunchtime you’re likely to wait in line a while. But take advantage of the time for some juicy eavesdropping among fellow patrons as you contemplate your best burger move.
When we stopped by a rustic roadside fruit stand on the outskirts of Manzanillo, Mexico, I wasn’t expecting to eat anything, much less a spiked fruit the size of a large watermelon called a jaca.
Our guide Donato told us when you open a jaca, also known as jackfruit, you never know what flavor you’ll get – coconut, papaya, mango, pineapple? When I tried a taste, it reminded me of all of those fruits, but was distinctly its own.
When the tall basket of produce arrived on our table we thought, “Really?”
Yes, we really were expected to pull out that hard-boiled egg, cucumber, tomato, celery stalk and other veggies of choice and get to slicing, dicing and cracking. That’s the usual make-your-own-salad drill at Le Maschou in Cannes, France, and we loved it.
