What do the Tate’s drink?

Our incredible partners in crime over at Tate and  Tate Catering were kind enough to let us in on their favorite cocktails. I guessed one immediately- Maker’s neat.

When you’re as busy as he is creating all the great food they serve, there’s no time for mixer’s.  Hope this is neat enough for you George! Cheers




Barb said her favorite cocktail is a Spicy Bloody Mary, which makes sense after seeing the beautiful brunch spreads she puts out. We all have our own “secret” recipe and I won’t force her to reveal hers, so here’s mine-

Cary’s 5 Alarm Bloody Mary

2 oz  Crater Lake Pepper Vodka

6 oz  Spicy V8

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp green olive brine (Jalapeno stuffed if you like the extra heat)

1 tsp. horseradish, or more to taste

jalapeno slices

1/4 tsp celery salt

.5 oz lemon juice

fresh cracked pepper

Seasoned salt to rim the glass and every type of pickled veggie ever made to garnish, seriously – it’s almost a meal

In a shaker, muddle a few slices of jalapeno with a couple cubes of ice. Really pulverize those bad boys. Add remaining ingredients (except garnishes) and shake until well mixed. Pour into ice filled glass and enjoy!
