1 ounce of Bacardi Silver Rum

1 ounce orange juice

1 ounce pineapple juice

Splash of grenadine and sour mix

Garnish with Fresh Summer fruits- orange, lemon, lime, & cherry

Method:

Fill a mason jar (or a large wine glass) with ice. Add rums, juices, splash of grenadine & sour mix. Garnish with fresh seasonal fruit.

TASTE THE ISLANDS

Recipe of the Month

Mâche, Beet, and Walnut Salad

Ingredients:

4 red beets

Kosher salt

½ pound mâche, rinsed several times in cold water to remove sand or ½ pound mixed salad greens (soft leaf, mesclun, baby romaine lettuces), rinsed

1 cup shelled fresh walnuts

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

4 tablespoons walnut oil

NOTE: In France we buy beets already cooked. Farmers bring raw beets to their local bakers who put them in brick ovens that have been shut down after a day’s work of baking bread. This allows the beets to cook slowly.

Method:

On a flat roasting pan roast the beets on a bed of the kosher salt in a preheated 350 F. oven until fully done. Let the beets cool and peel them.

Cut the beets into small cubes. In a salad bowl combine the beets, mâche, and walnuts and season with the salt and pepper. Drizzle the vinegar and walnut oil over the salad and toss it.

Serves 4.

The Latest in Beer

Keeping you up to date in the Craft Beer Craze...each month
L.B.C. will let you know what’s new in our Restaurants with Beer.

Beer of the Month: Hoptical Illusion
Blue Point Brewery, Long Island ABV=6.8%

On Tap while it lasts...at Maxwell's, Library Cafe and Post Office Cafe.

Hoptical Illusion

Ancient Egyptians stuffed their pillows with fresh hops, believing the hop’s aroma brought on intense, vivid dreams. We won’t go as far as to say you’ll see things after partaking in a few Hoptical Illusions, but one or two will definitely leave you craving more.

Blue Point's classic, American-style IPA features a rare hop grown exclusively on a small farm in Oregon. One taste and you’ll understand why they bought the entire crop. Hoptical Illusion is brewed with a generous amount of this select hop that is added five different ways throughout the brewing process to maximize hop flavor and aroma. The delicious, resiny, citrus-burst that you taste is the "essence of the hop" which is rounded out by a malty backbone to yield an intense, perfectly balanced, golden ale.
