Signature Drink: Dill or No Dill?

Mixologist Freddie Sarkis curated a custom cocktail menu to reflect the globally inspired cuisine at the newly opened Scroll Bar Waterside Kitchen in Redwood City. The fare at the eatery that’s inside the Pullman San Francisco Bay Hotel ranges from an ahi poke stack appetizer to the $350 Scroll Kitchen luau pig that has to be ordered 48 hours in advance and requires a minimum of eight diners.

As for the flavor profile of the punny “Dill or No Dill,” Sarkis says, “The herbal and light smoke flavors paired with the botanicals in the gin make for a refreshing hit and a different style of cocktail.”

INGREDIENTS:
- 1.5 oz. gin .75 oz. fresh-squeezed lemon juice
- .5 oz. St-Germain Liqueur
- 2 sprigs dill
- 2 slices cucumber

DIRECTIONS:
- Combine and shake first three ingredients.
- Pour into a coupe glass.
- Garnish with dill and cucumber.

California is one of the most abundant agricultural regions in the world, but a startling number of residents aren’t always sure where their next meal will come from. According to Feeding America, the nation’s largest network of food banks, one in eight Californians struggles with hunger. The situation is especially startling for children; one in five is food insecure.

Hunger is not a supply problem, it’s a logistics challenge. And the meetings and events industry is full of logistics-minded people who are in a position to chip away at it.

 

There’s gold—and a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed meeting center—in them thar hills.

 

A new gem in the central coast.
