Vendor Spotlight: Lillie’s Q

BBQ may seem humble at a glance, but it takes a lot of practice and patience to perfect the art of grilling. The folks at Lillie’s Q have done just that. We searched high and low to find the finest sauces, rubs, and seasonings for your summer cookout (plus some other top picks). Once you break the wax seal on a bottle of their hand-crafted sauces, delicious aromas of smoke and spice will get your mouth watering right away. And just wait until you slather some on that rack of ribs! Named after Chef Charlie McKenna’s grandmother, every offering from this award-winning kitchen is a ringer. Although the restaurant is based out of Chicago, we brought their Southern-style goodies to the DC area this summer! Read on to learn about regional BBQ varieties and check out a smokin’ recipe for shrimp and grits.

The Beehive Cocktail

beehive2

As we move from the golden days of summer into the crisp nights of fall, it’s only right to sip on an appropriately autumnal cocktail. That cocktail is the Beehive. This drink strikes the perfect balance between sweet and spicy by combining fiery ginger with floral honey (plus a hefty amount of bourbon).  The Beehive is refreshing enough to enjoy while tailgating and potent enough to swig beside a bonfire. Our secret ingredient is Tippleman’s Ginger Honey Syrup, crafted in small batches to bring your homemade cocktails to the next level.  Grab a bottle here, follow the recipe below, and get buzzed!

 

How To Make the Beehive
2 oz bourbon
3/4 oz Tippleman’s Ginger Honey Syrup
3/4 oz lemon juice
ice
chilled ginger beer
lemon peel for garnish

Add all ingredients except ginger beer to a cocktail shaker. Shake well and strain into a chilled glass. Top with ginger beer and twist lemon peel over drink. Cheers!

Vendor Spotlight: Rewined Candles

RewinedCandles_logo

Rewined Candles founder Adam Fetsch wasn’t always in the candle industry. In fact, he was working in a restaurant where lots of empty wine bottles were discarded—then, he got the brilliant idea to give them new life as candle vessels. As an homage to their past, he filled the repurposed bottles with scents mimicking the complex aromas and flavors found in your favorite varietal of wine. Adam began selling his wine inspired candles at local markets in 2009 and eventually made it to our shop in 2013!
