Although our garden has yet to overflow, we won’t let that stop us from kicking off this season’s Garden to Glass series. Instead we turned to the surrounding juniper trees for inspiration, and sourced local gin, honey, and fresh herbs for this delightful Oregon Rosemary Fizz! To make your own, muddle three one-inch sprigs of fresh rosemary, juice of half a lemon, and a teaspoon of honey (which also helps with allergies this time of year. Filter muddled juices into a lowball or copper mug and fill with ice. Add 1-1/2 oz. of gin and top with club soda. Summer can’t come fast enough.
We spent last week touring the beautiful island of Vancouver, B.C., where we were drawn to the vibrantly hued boathouses and restaurants at Fisherman’s Wharf in Victoria. This tiny wharf is just off the beaten path, but well worth exploring!
Steel Life sponsored the Modern Garden Tour & Cocktail Reception during this year’s Palm Springs Modernism Week. The self-guided tour was a great compilation of eclectic, mid-century and desert flare, ending at the well-known Avalon Hotel, where drinks and appetizers were served in their intimate grassy courtyard.
