Q-Cumber Cocktail

Ingredients
(serves 1)

1½ ounces gin
½ ounce simple syrup
2 – 3 chunks of fresh cucumber
¾ ounce fresh lemon juice
2 ounces Q Tonic or other all-natural tonic water
4 drops rose water

Instructions

Muddle the cucumber with the simple syrup. Add the lemon juice and gin. Shake and fine-strain* into a rocks glass over ice. Top with the Q Tonic and rose water.

* Fine-straining refers to straining the cocktail with both the Hawthorne strainer (attached to the mixing glass) and a mesh or tea strainer held by your non-pouring hand between the shaker and the glass. This technique will catch all of the herb or fruit particles and make for a perfectly clean cocktail.

Gibbons Cocktail

Ingredients
(serves 1)

1 Kaffir lime leaf
2 wedges ripe tomato or 2 plum or pear tomatoes
¾ ounce simple syrup*
¾ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1½ ounces local vodka
½ ounce Treaty Oak Platinum Rum

Instructions

Muddle the Kaffir lime leaf in the mixing tin; the leaf is tough so it’s OK to be aggressive. You should smell the aroma of the leaf. In the mixing glass, muddle the tomato in the simple syrup. Add the lime juice, vodka, and rum. Shake with ice and double strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a Kaffir lime leaf and/or a pear tomato.

* Make your own simple syrup by simmering equal parts sugar and water until sugar dissolves.

I just wanted to drop a short note to let you know how much I've loved discovering your magazine! Having been an art director for trade publications for nearly 15 years, I have a pretty critical eye for print media and yours is really great. The photography is engaging and I think you really pull the reader into every subject you cover. I found myself interested in articles I normally wouldn't be, and I think that says a lot for your design and format.

I am so impressed with the spring issue of edible! There are so many great resources and articles in this edition. It always kicks a** but you gals continue to ramp it up to the next level! Thank you for highlighting women in ag and working with the food co-op, too! So, after you dropped off the magazine, they were all gone in about two hours.

I was at Nothing To It the evening you were talking about the launch of this new read. I thought, 'a fresh, forward publication for Reno. Sounds appealing.' When it arrived, I fell in love. The pages were crisp with the new food mindset, chock full of inspiration to eat and shop locally.

OUR READERS SAY...

I just picked up the latest edition at Whole Foods. Wow! You have done an amazing job. I am going to hang onto this magazine and consult it frequently. I imagine my copy will be dog-eared and tattered by the time your next edition comes out. You have a real dynamic going and I hope to see the magazine for years to come. I can't wait to tell my friends and family about it.

Your magazine just keeps getting better and better! Loved this issue! My 12-year-old son picked it up and was fascinated by the solar cookers. He wants to build one.
