San Francisco Launch Party

On November 6th, we celebrated the launch of deliberateLIFE and our iPhone app with a little party at The Stable Cafe in San Francisco. It was a lovely evening filled with laughter, good conversation and amazing food provided by Savoy Events an Oakland-based sustainable and eco-friendly catering company. The food was really something else, and we love their business model, so please consider using them for your next event!

If you loved Ken's cocktail at the party, try making it at home. He was kind enough to share the recipe he designed for the party. Named 'The Perennial' the drink is a nod to both our belief in sustainability and a well-wish that deliberateLIFE Magazine will have many seasons to come. Enjoy!

The Perennial 

  • 2 1/4 oz. Distillery No. 209 gin
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. Meyer lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. Cointreau
  • 1/2 oz. Quince & Apple brand tart cherry grenadine
  • approx. 1/4 oz. yellow Chartreuse

Shake all ingredients except Chartreuse in an ice-filled shaker.  Strain into a cocktail glass, and float Chartreuse over the surface of the drink.  If you are inclined toward adornment, garnish with a brandied cherry.
