Aromatic Bitters Chicken

By Warren Bobrow, Cocktail Whisperer

Summertime and the living is easy should be the metaphor for dining al fresco.  And summertime dining doesn’t have to be drudgery.  What it should be is casual and carefree.

The foods that you choose to grill and the drinks you choose to imbibe should all resonate with each other.  That’s why I like to pair cocktails with foods that include one or more of the same ingredients.   And summer is the best time to mix it up for your guests and stimulate their appetites at the same time.

Chicken is an inexpensive way to show your guests that your fancy culinary degree actually tastes good!  Most people try to hard in their summertime menus and lose track of how delicious simple foods like chicken can be in the right hands. 

You should know that the secret ingredient for the chicken and this cocktail is no other than Aromatic Bitters.  The very style of bitters that was originally invented to stave off the horrible tropical disease called dysentery is the exact ingredient that is essential in my chicken dish.  Another essential ingredient is ginger syrup.  In this case the ginger syrup is from Pickett’s in Brooklyn, NY.  I used the Hot n’ Spicy Jamaican style ginger beer syrup.  There is a less spicy version for the fearful, but really, have no fear- use the hot n’ spicy because it really rocks the boat.  You will also use a portion of the ginger beer syrup along with the Angostura Bitters in the chicken- but I’m getting ahead of myself a little bit. 

The genesis of Bitters and Ginger Syrup Chicken – along with the companion cocktail goes back to my early twenties.  I spent some time down in the British Virgin Islands on my family yacht.  She was a magnificent vessel, completely hand built for my mom and step-dad.  Weighing in at 65 tons, she more than made a statement in heavy winds and pounding waves.  Sometimes these heavy winds brought seasickness, you would know if you’ve ever been out at sea, a mere speck of life in an otherwise forlorn place.  For that pleasure there was always ginger simple syrup on board.  My stepdad knew that this was the miracle cure for the kind of seasickness that included the good, the bad and the very awful…  He knew from being an old salt that ginger (and Aromatic Bitters) healed just about everything known to his crew, including seasickness.  It mostly healed hangovers- but once the rum started flowing (at 7 in the morning, another lousy day in paradise) it didn’t stop until late at night.  Hence, there was the need for powerful restoratives/purgatives. 

Sailing is hard work and when it is your watch, there really is no excuse- like “I’m not feeling well, or I’m not hungry…”

Hopefully by enjoying these recipes they will stimulate your thirst along with your hunger!

What to Pair with Great Vietnamese Takeout

By Liza B. Zimmerman


There are so many amazing Vietnamese restaurants in this country and so few of them offer great wine lists. That is all the more reason to BYOB, when you can, or order in at home to pair the food with a fantastic bottle of your choice.

The subtle, herb-driven flavors of this cuisine call out for wines with bright acidity and a touch of residual sugar. Big, oaky reds with tannins can make a lot of the dishes taste dull and matelatic: a flavor profile you definitely want to avoid.

Pairings from the Source
My adopted town of San Francisco is home to a high-end Vietnamese restaurant called the Slanted Door. They not only have amazing Bay views but also feature a fantastic wine list that works beautifully with some of the soft, and sweet, flavors in this classic cuisine.

Wine director, Chaylee Priete, who also oversees a handful of other restaurants within chef Phan's group, says that it is, "easy to overpower Vietnamese food with the wrong wine. It has to be something that cleans the palate, therefore wines with acid. It has to be something that counterbalances the heat." Residual sugar for her is the key, and I agree, also staying away from tannic wines is essential.

Cool-climate, well-balanced wines such as Grǖner Veltiner from Austria and some of the medium-dry white wines from German would be ideal. You could slip in a handful of fairly dry Rieslings from Alsace and some  off-dry Gewǖrztraminers as well. The important rule is to keep the pairing high in acidity and low on tannins (which is easy with many of these clean, refreshing picks).

Other Ideas
Bubbles go brilliantly with almost everything, including Vietnamese food. Go with Champagne if you are on a big budget or classic California or regional French sparklers if you are not. Many of the rosé Champagnes will be a bit sweeter: hence they could stand up to sweeter marinades on meat and Vietnamese Clay Pot dishes which are generally made with carmel.

Simple cremants from many regions of France will be fantastic with these flavors. There are also great domestic alternatives such as Gruet from New Mexico and Tk from California

Pairing Spanish Wine and Food

By Liza B. Zimmerman


Spain has long produced a sea of food-friendly whites and reds. However they have sometimes languished in wine-pairing small plates and "Tapas Ghetto." The country is lucky that its food has long surpassed its regional barriers and morphed into an international love of bite-sized snacks, but that culinary movement hasn't always helped Spanish wines.

It is a shame because so many Spain's wines pair with lots of delicious dishes. Sarah Knoefler, the beverage director general manager of Gitane, a Mediterranean restaurant that is part of the Café Claude and Gaspare Group in San Francisco, had a few suggestions.

Sharing Insight
While Gitane's wine list is not solely Spanish, nor are its culinary inspirations, although they are primarily assertive and savory in a Southern-Mediterranean way. To work with her Spanish wine selections, which features a wide range of Spanish wines with a focus on cool-climate whites, Knoefler suggests, keeping "it simple and focusing on one flavor element. Bold spicy flavors will hold up with many of the wines. Think about sense of place also, seafood will pair with a crisp refreshing white wine."

Spanish wines are a great entry point to Old World wines, she adds. "They have the balance of ripe fruit with underlying earth and structure. This structure of acidity or tannins balances out the wine and keeps it fresh on the palate. Because of the fruit, these wines are approachable to your typical New World-style wine drinker."

Cool Whites for Seafood and Reds for Meat
Spain has long been justifiably famous for its beautifully balanced white wines. For Knoefler, seafood always reminds her of Albariño because the northern region of Galicia is on the coast. "The wines have a briny element that goes well with anything from the ocean." The Do Zoe Rias Baixas is a great example.

"My two favorite regions of Spain [for whites] are Rueda and Galicia. Both of these regions have wines that are balanced with fruit and acidity which makes them easy to enjoy," she says. "Rueda is the home of Verdejo which is made in a variety of styles with or without oak. They are very versatile with apple, pear and tropical fruit flavors with a vibrant acidity to match."

When transitioning into heartier fare, Paella--the traditional Spanish rice dish--can be paired with "a light red wine like Mencia or any of the great Spanish rosés that are out there." She adds that the deeper color of these Spanish roses allow them to stand up to more spice. "Grilled meats also work well with Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero which has a bit more dark fruits and smoke then Rioja."

Galicia's reds showcase, "the meaty spicy Mencia grape with is almost like a cross of Pinot Noir and Syrah. This wine also has dusty tannins and good acidity to match many different foods."

Since the price point of Spanish wines is still very good, a huge selection of quality choices can be had for under $15 and sometimes even under $10 a bottle, so Knoefler suggests trying a few different styles and just having fun. Mix and match to see what you like best at home. Ask questions and let the staff know what you like in wine. They can help you find a new varietal or style of wine that you would like based on your own comfort zone."

Wines for Cinco de Mayo

By Liza B. Zimmerman


If you don't want to get your Tequila on for next week's holiday, I have some alternative wine solutions to help you celebrate. Many of them even go well with Mexican foods and flavors if you want to partake of the cuisine without cocktails.

The jalapenos in Mexican food and cheese-laden and rice-filled dishes call for wines with bright acidity and a touch of residual sugar. Some of the fresh, California-produced wines like Joel Gott will do the trick. Also Sauvignon Blancs from South Africa, where wine production is getting better and better, are fantastic values and food wines. France's Loire Valley makes some beautiful ones, as does Chile.

Sparkling wines, particularly anything from the dynamic Gruet family in New Mexico would also pair splendidly with Mexican flavors. Proseccos and Cavas are solid choices as well.

Celebrate Tequila in Spirit
Many of the best Tequilas have a maderized flavor, similar to Sherry, which gives beverages a rich and somewhat oxidized flavor. So why not start with Sherry, the Queen of maderized wines, is great as an appertif and works well with nutty flavors such as pistaccio-flecked salads. It is also great in cocktails.

Other notably oxidized wines generally include the Rhône whites such as Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier. Their style is similar when they are produced in Washington and parts of California as well. Many producers in Washington, primarily in the Eastern part of the state, as well as Paso Robles in Central California, are doing a spectacular job with these wines.

Getting in a Latin Mood
If you can't be in Mexico but long for that relaxing Latin vibe take a little South American vacation in a bottle. Argentina and Chile are both producing some amazing, and completely different, wines. Chile, for me, is all about elegance and balance in both its single varietals and blends.

Moderating breezes from the Ocean and mountain ranges that protect and insulate vineyards support producers' goals of producing fruit-forward and food-friendly wines. Cousino-Macul is not only a great winery, but also has a great homebase that can be visited pretty close to downtown Santiago.

Cheers from DrinkUpNY!

Thai Style Salmon, WB Stylee’

By Warren Bobrow, Cocktail Whisperer


I was thinking of cold-water fish the other day, salmon to be exact.  From the Pacific Northwest Coast.  In my opinion, this is the best fish that money can buy.  And to go with Pacific Northwest Salmon, you need the right wine.  And this wine would be none other than a wine that has impressed me greatly, Cairnbrae Sauvignon Blanc. 

Cairnbrae Sauvignon Blanc is not like the fruit forward American or Italian Sauvignon Blanc wine that clutter store shelves at this price-point of fewer than twenty dollars. 

This is highly individualistic, quality white wine with notes of sub-tropical fruits, candied pink grapefruit, and juicy lime zest wrapped in a tangle of white flowers.  There are underlying notes of sea smoke, crushed stones and crisp acidity that wraps around your head in a most beguiling fashion.  

Coming into view are slices of juicy tangerine and thick chunks of broiled pineapple.  This is a most intriguing wine.  I like preparing dishes that hail from the Pacific Rim region with New Zealand wines; because these luxurious but not overly priced wines make your tropically influenced seafood preparations taste more delectable!

But what of the salmon, where does this fit in? 

I’m a fan of grilling pristine salmon as simply as possible.  If it’s line-caught and never frozen there is absolutely no reason to overly marinate this tender and flavor packed fish.  You only should marinate fish when it is previously frozen.  Frozen fish is not quite as unflawed as it should be- not that the fish is bad when it comes frozen, far from, there is just a very short window between perfect- and not quite so, that’s why frozen costs much less than fresh-never frozen.  

This recipe for Cairnbrae Sauvignon Blanc is delicious because the recipe has a great deal going on from a flavor perspective, with very little effort on your part.  Sure there are the miniscule slivers of blistering hot Thai Chilies and yes, there are crushed shallots cooked to sweet and melting along with paper thin slices of intensely scented, caramelized garlic, a pillow of palm sugar and a chiffonade of Thai Basil that smacks of the beauty of the salty air and the abundant sunshine. 

At the end of the day, this is a corporeal recipe for someone who lives right on the Pacific Rim and wants flavor to augment their perfectly crafted wine.  And if they don’t live in this part of the globe, and they do live in New York City and they want their foods to exude the opulent flavors of a very wild part of the planet, then they should dig right in and make this very easy to assemble dish.  

New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is one of my favorite wines and for good reason.  Although I have never been to this part of the world I’m intrigued by it.  The diversity of the terroir in New Zealand makes their wines taste like nowhere else in the world.  The white wines are zesty, aromatic and wide-ranging across your tongue.  They swirl around your brain and tribally tattoo their own brand of exciting, deeply into your brain…. 

Forever. 

Thai Style Salmon, WB Stylee’
2 pounds salmon filet, thick slices, cut from the center of the fish
Crushed Sea Salt and Freshly cracked pepper
¼ oz. extra thin slices of super spicy, Thai Chilies (wear gloves!!)
½ oz. lime zest (very thinly sliced)
2 oz. caramelized shallot  (cook shallots low and slow in a ceramic vessel for an hour at 300, peeled)
2 oz. caramelized garlic (cook garlic, unpeeled in a ceramic vessel for an hour at 300)
Tiny pinch of Palm Sugar, about a tsp. will do. You don’t want this dish too sweet because the flavors won’t work
1 oz. Light Soy
1 oz. only…freshly squeezed lime juice  (this is why you add the sugar, it makes the dish have great balance of flavor to go with your wine)
2-3 oz. Cairnbrae Sauvignon Blanc

Combine all the wet ingredients together and rub into the salmon filets along with generous twists from your peppermill and the salt mill…

Prepare either a cast iron pan or a charcoal grill with grapevines or hardwood charcoal as the burning medium. 

When the coals or the cast iron pan is sufficiently hot (smoking please), place the Thai Spiced Salmon onto the grill, skin side down and please, DO NOT TOUCH for at least five minutes, then flip over and do not touch for another five or so minutes.

Remove from the stove and let sit in a 200 degree oven for about five more minutes until the juices stay where they belong, INSIDE the fish and not on the grill pan or in your fire!!

Slice the warm salmon on a bias and serve with Jasmine rice and the pan drippings.
Of course you should wash this sumptuous meal down with many well-chilled glasses of the brilliant Cairnbrae Sauvignon Blanc, bought by you at DrinkupNY. 

Cheers from DrinkUpNY!

Wines for Mother's Day

By Liza B. Zimmerman


My mother has always loved the good stuff: including bubbles of all kinds. Really who doesn't? Another great idea is a rosé because it is so fresh and fruit-forward in Spring. Another approach might be giving her a "vacation in a bottle."

If it's in your budget break out the big boys with Champagne: Gosset and Duval-Leroy are classic examples. Gruet's beautiful sparklers from New Mexico are more affordable and incredibly delicious. There are also some splendid bubbles coming out of regions like Alsace and the Loire Valley in France, as well as tasty Cavas and Proseccos.

Rowdy Rosé
So many dry and balanced rosés are coming on the market: so why not surprise mom with one as an aperitif? I love some of the bigger and fruiter styles coming out of Spain, lesser-known areas--for rosé--such as Bordeaux and even Northern Italy.

Some of the Rhône reds grapes, such as Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Grenache are making beautiful, refreshing wines: such as Guigal's Côtes du Rhône Rosé. I am also a huge fan of some of the producers from Sicily who are making almost dry rosés from cool climate grapes such as Nerello Mascalese.

A Vacation in a Bottle
You can take your mother on a virtual trip with wines that bring the flavors of beautiful places home virtually. Traveling domestically I might start with an Oregon Pinot Noir. They evoke a misty day in the Willamette Valley when the fog lifts and you can see green, verdant hills for forever and then eat great salmon for lunch.

South Africa, particularly the area around Cape Town must be one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Thank goodness the local winemakers produce wines to match that beauty. I love their blends, particularly when they have Syrah in the them. I could do without the "Cape blend" addition of Pinotage. Rupert & Rothschild's "Classique" is a great example of the

exquisite balance that a blend can bring to the table. Vergelegen is another outstanding producer.

South America is a dynamic place to both drink and spend time. Mendoza is a compact and ideal introduction to winemaking. Malbecs, such as the delicious Bodegas Renacer "Punto Final," are king here. Some of the Bonardas made here are also quite divine.

Chile gets less love than Argentina, in great part because it doesn't have a single culinary or wine style to hang its hat on. However the incredibly diverse regions of this tall--and skinny, almost California-like--wine producing country are delivering some amazingly crisp Sauvignon Blancs. In terms of reds the country is strong in many of locally grown Bordeaux varietals. I am less convinced by the Pinot Noirs I have seen but really like the smokiness of many of the Carmeneres.

Iberian Whites

By Liza B. Zimmerman

The love has been a long time in coming for Spanish and Portuguese white grape varieties. The glamorous Tempranillo has long been the queen of Spanish reds and the Portuguese red indigenous varietals used for Port are finally getting the attention they deserve in non-fortified wines.

White grapes, from both countries--and there is quite a lot of cross over between varieties grown in both nations--can have great acidity, beautiful fruit flavors and pair divinely with lots of seafood and spicy dishes.

The Leading Lady
Albarino is unquestionably the top white in Spain. It goes into stone fruit-rich and steely whites that are particularly notable from the green, verdant north in Rías Baixas and Galicia. I have yet to meet a fish, or seafood stew, to which it doesn't do justice. Salmon and Asian-style marinades on tuna might be the only ocean's treasures that might not pair with it.

The same grape is found over the Portuguese border, directly across from Galicia in the far northern Minho region. So many styles of Albariño are produced in both countries that it is hard to generalize, but I often find the Portuguese versions to be a bit richer and creamer. Sometimes they also have slight notes of oxidation, as if the Rhône whites had whispered in their ears.

The Spanish region of Rueda's Verdejos are incredibly fresh and full of mineral notes. They are almost a regional-go-to-solution all in one with spicy food pairing solutions. Indian, Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese bring on the hot peppers, curries and chili sauces and these crisp whites will cool your palate right down.

Going Green
Some of Portugal's most delightful, easy-drink and affordable wines come from the country's Vinho Verde region. No, they are not actually green, but can have a green sheen and often a little fizz. These are generally a blend of Alvarinho--spelled with an H--Arinto, Loueiro and Trajadura. They are not easy to say but worth the tongue twister to drink. A handful of producers also making rosés from the region, but most of them tend to be too sweet for me.

As an aperitif white Port is also delicious. My first time in Lisbon I did a double-take when first offered one. I thought he was kidding, but it is indeed white, pretty off-dry and great on the rocks. It also makes a good spritzer to enjoy on a sunny afternoon.
