Mimosa? No, "Mamosa"

Looking for a summer drink with a little bit more exotic flavoring? 

Try a mimosa with Hibiscus syrup and St. Germain liqueur. It's called, the 'Mamosa'.

1 Wild Hibiscus Flower
1 oz St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
1 oz Pink Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Wild Hibiscus Syrup
5 oz Dry Sparkling Wine
Place flower in champagne flute.  Shake next 3 ingredients on ice and carefully strain into champagne flute. Top with dry sparkling wine.  Garnish with long grapefruit zest.  Tip:   Twist the grapefruit zest and roll in plastic wrap.  Until ready to use, store in the freezer to keep its shape.

ArtPadSF returns for another year to the Phoenix Hotel

ArtPadSF returns for another year to the Phoenix Hotel in San Francisco. This annual art fair is one of the most unique on the West Coast.

For example, each gallery does not set up a booth… They set up a mini gallery inside of each motel room.

Guests can wander in and out of rooms at leisure, stop at the hip restaurant that is part of the motel, or sit by the pool with a drink.

The atmosphere is vibrant and the work is fantastic.

"Destination Beirut" comes to St James's as first pop-up restaurant

From 1-4 May 2013, St James's will be hosting its first pop-up restaurant experience with Mile High’s "Destination Beirut", based in a secret location within this unique part of London's West End. A return trip is then scheduled from 8-11 May.

This event will take place in a hidden location on Regent Street St James's. The intimate space will replicate interiors of a 1950s Lebanese café reminiscent of the "Paris of the Middle East".

Anthea Harries, Portfolio Manager for St James's at The Crown Estate, said: "St James's is the ultimate blend of elegant heritage and cutting edge trend. As part of our £500m investment vision for the area we’re looking to enhance the existing restaurant offer by attracting acclaimed culinary talent. Mile High is the perfect example of this, as a pop-up restaurant which seeks to combine world class food with special and unique locations, making for an unforgettable experience. We're delighted they chose St James's as the next destination on their tour."
