Wine and cheese events are popular, but have you ever tasted artisan cheese expertly paired with a cocktail? If your tastebuds are ready for this tantalizing twist, the culinary team at Michael’s On East is pleased to unveil its new “Made in America” Cheese Flight and Handcrafted Cocktails. Sourced locally through Sarasota's Artisan Cheese Company, there will be an ever-changing trio of farmstead cheeses available on their menu.
“It’s a match made in foodie heaven,” said Molly Klauber, assistant general manager of Michael’s On East. “Personally, I’ve been a ‘cheese-oholic’ throughout my entire life and the selections these cheesemongers have prepared for us are to die for. I recommend enjoying these artisan cheeses with one of our new handcrafted ‘All American’ cocktails or a flight of fine wines.”
Here's a sneak peak at their cocktail menu:
Sidecar: Germain-Robin Craft-Method Brandy, Cointreau and Fresh Lemon
Molly’s Apple Juice: UV Apple Vodka, Apple Juice, Ginger Ale with a Slice of Green Apple
The Vesper: Death’s Door Gin, Boyd & Blair Vodka, Lillet and Lemon Peel
