  • Bloody Mary's – You Either Love Them or Hate Them!

    Bloody Marys - people either love them or hate them. We love them! There is nothing more glorious than a good Bloody Mary garnished with fresh celery on a sunny morning. Notice we said 'sunny', not 'Sunday'. We think Bloody Marys are good any day, anytime. Garnishing this cocktail has become an Olympic sport practically, but we like to keep ours pretty simple...
  • Disappearing Fruit, The Ark of Taste and The Good Stuff

    Blenheim Apricots used to be grown in abundance in the Santa Clara valley starting in the early 1900’s. By the 1960’s they started to decline.

  • This sauce is legit! Hazel's BBQ Sauce, Sacramento California

    When we launched SacTown Bites’ Farm to Fork in a Box, we really wanted to showcase local purveyors making unique, difficult to find products of the highest quality. Hazel’s BBQ sauce epitomizes that quest. This BBQ sauce is ‘legit’, as one fan said on Instagram. It is legit, and it is ridiculously good. I mean, really good.

    Shrubs are not just for cocktails. In fact, the shrubs by Burly Beverages, featured in our June Box, were created to make a better tasting and healthier soda. Owner and maker Gabriel Aiello originally was looking to make a better ginger beer.
  • From Spirits to Hand Sanitizer

    In the age of Covid-19 there has been a lot of pivoting. Its pivot or survive, or pivot because you will go crazy sitting on your hands not knowing how to move forward in this age of uncertainty. For J.J. Pfister Distilling it was neither of those reasons.
