Learn how to make AC Hotel’s Flor de Bahia cocktail 


I recently had a drink named Flor de Bahia at the AC Hotel in Buckhead. It was excellent and had a unique flavor that I cannot pinpoint. Can you tell me the ingredients in the drink with a recipe to prepare it? Thanks. — Vicky Murphy, Atlanta

This cocktail from the AC Lounge at the newly opened AC Hotel Atlanta Buckhead at Phipps Plaza is the creation of Chris Adams. It’s not a surprise that you might not be able to guess all the components as it relies on a wide range of spirits and guava juice.

If you want to duplicate the hotel’s presentation, dried pomegranate and a wide range of other dried fruits are available from http://nuts.com

5 myths about beer

Summer for Americans is a time of backyard barbecues, baseball and beer. Memorial Day weekend is a perfect chance to sit outside with the season's first sixer, and the varieties of beer you can pick up at the local grocer have multiplied. "This is a golden age for beer lovers," as the Washington Post reported in 2016. Yet the sheer number...

The ideal aperitif: Good vermouth, cool and fragrant

One summer evening a few years ago, I was standing in the Napa Valley kitchen of Steve Matthiasson, a farmer and winemaker, when he handed me a tumbler filled with amber liquid and a fat cube of ice. It was not what I was expecting from Matthiasson, who, with his wife, Jill Klein Matthiasson, makes a range of wonderfully pure and refreshing wines from...

Charcoal or gas? Depends on what you’re grilling

Gas or charcoal? It is a question that has bedeviled American consumers and cooks for decades, since the first LazyMan propane grill went on sale in the 1950s and left the Smiths with their briquette-fueled brazier looking jealously over the fence at the Joneses and their new outdoor science stove. In the abstract, there is no one correct answer. You...
