tanglefoot-what-to-drink

“This is a savory cocktail that represents a form of Argentine cooking,” says creator Jess Lambert, Head Bartender at Boleo in Chicago. This tequila-based cocktail, the Tanglefoot, contains smoked tomato water, raspberry-basil syrup and lime juice. “The tomatoes are blanched, skinned, pulsed and strained through a cheese cloth to produce a beautiful tomato water that is then seasoned with smoked sea salt,” says Lambert. Basil is macerated in a bright, raspberry syrup and removed. “The tequila adds a soft, vegetal base.” It’s a good move when you need a break from the Irish whiskey this weekend.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
