Join us at the wine store tonight from 6-8pm as we welcome Tito’s Vodka to sample their Texan spirit straight and in Italian Ice cocktails using Prometheus Springs Lemon Ginger, a capsaicin-spiked elixir.
Italian Ice Cocktail
Ounce and a half Tito’s vodka
Half ounce simple syrup
Half ounce lime juice
Half ounce Limoncello
Two Ounces Prometheus Springs
Shake and pour over ice.
Enjoy with a slice of lime.
2 large onions, cut into medium slices
1 yellow or orange pepper, cut in medium slices
1 hot pepper (such as habanero, or jalapeno) thinly sliced without seeds
2 tablespoons of roughly chopped cilantro for garnish
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 smoked Spanish Paprika
Filets of white fish like tilapia (approx 1/2 lb. per person)
1 cup all-purpose flour
Vegetable oil (about an inch hi in frying pan)
Sweet Potato (2 1/2 inch cut rounds per person)
Begin by placing sherry vinegar in a medium size bowl. Place onions, peppers, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper into sherry vinegar and let it sit for 20 minutes.
Heat oil in a skillet on medium.
In a bowl combine flour, salt and pepper. Dredge fish filets in flour and fry in oil until cooked and golden brown, about 5 minutes each side. Place fish on a platter and put to the side.
Using the same pan remove most of the oil from the pan leaving about a tbsp. Return the pan to medium-high heat and add your bowl ofingredients along with the sherry.
Make sure to stir constantly until onions have become translucent. Allow the sauce to reduce and thicken which will take about 10 minutes.

If you’re embracing the weather, you can’t go wrong indulging in fettucine carbonara, a rich comfort food dish that if you’ve only enjoyed in restaurants you’ll be surprised to find has absolutely no heavy cream or butter. The cheese counter sells our aged parmesan freshly grated, which makes this dish a snap and the smell of onions and garlic cooking with bacon will warm you up before you’ve taken your first bite.
1 pound fettucine
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 slices bacon, diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt and black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook fettucine until al dente. Drain well. Toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and set aside.
Meanwhile in a large skillet, cook chopped bacon until slightly crisp; remove and drain onto paper towels. Reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon fat; add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, and heat in reused large skillet. Add chopped onion, and cook over medium heat until onion is translucent. Add minced garlic, and cook 1 minute more. Return cooked bacon to pan; add cooked and drained fettucine. Toss to coat and heat through. Beat eggs in a separate bowl then add beaten eggs to pasta and cook, tossing constantly with tongs or large fork until eggs are barely set. Quickly add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and toss again. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately with chopped parsley sprinkled on top, and extra Parmesan cheese at table.
