Food Trucks!

Food Trucks are one of those trends that has stayed popular for quite a while.  When it started we had no idea we’d fall so in love with Food Truck Design.  I definitely helps that the food truck community keeps raising the bar in design and experience!

“Food should be fun.”  Thomas Keller

For as long as we can remember Food Trucks have represented one of the most fun food experiences.  Remember the Oscar Meyer Wiener Mobile? They are small spaces that pack a big punch for your senses. We always have a good time when we bring Food Truck Facades to an event. We are hoping to find some adventurous clients this year that will let us remake the look of our trucks to something a little more playful.  Check out our Pinterest Board for some of the best Inspiration!

Ice Wine Martini

We tried to share this with you while we were on “Let’s Talk Live” the other day with News Channel 8, but the shaker went missing. So here it is!

Ice Wine Martini

Fill a Shaker of Ice (makes 2 martinis).

2 Full Ounces of Good Vodka– this drink is strong, so you will want vodka that you like)

1-Ounce Ice Wine, such as Inniskillin

1 Ounce White Grape Juice

Place 3 frozen seedless green grapes in each of the two martini glasses. Shake it all up and enjoy. It’s a great after dinner cocktail in place of dessert. If you want to make more than one martini at a time, just remember it’s 2 parts vodka, to one part ice wine and one part juice.
