  • Rasp Mojito

    Raspberry Mojito-Squadeeto

    The classic mojito came to us courtesy of Havana, Cuba. Now that the U.S and Cuba are on friendlier terms, perhaps weโ€™ll need to take a Le Voov! adventure to visit our neighbors 90-miles off the Florida Keysโ€ฆ.. Stay tuned!

  • Rasp Ginger Snap

    Raspberry Ginger Snap

    Several decades ago I began exploring the art of infusing various fruit and herbal mixtures with spirits. It started innocently enough with a simple curiosity to find a way to blend the medicinal anti-inflammatory qualities of the ginger root with the anti-oxidants in wild berries.

    Le Voov! Derby Mint Julep ๐Ÿ‡ ๐Ÿ‘‘ ๐Ÿ† ๐Ÿน

    Every year on the first Saturday in May we throw our annual Kentucky Derby Party to celebrate a West Coast version of the Run For The Roses. We honor the many traditional aspects of this southern event, including an extravagant California version of the ladies Parade of Hats that would make the fellas in the San Francisco Castro scream, yip and holler with delight!

    In keeping with tradition, we also have frosty mint juleps flowing promptly at 2 PM. However, as you may have suspected, my need to add a personal bit of Le Voov! originality, I put a little twist on the traditional julepโ€ฆ.
