Amanda dishes a Sunday Funday at Sola
Chef Carol Wallack from sola is Cool Chef meets Surfer Chic. This Superbowl Sunday she is hosting a Wahine Tailgate—“Wahine” means Woman in Hawaiian.
As much as we may think New England Patriot’s Tom Brady is a Babe, we all love his fashionista wife, Gisele Bundchen. As he takes on the NY Giants, pay tribute with a Brady’s Brazilian caipirinha cocktail ($11). Crafted with authentic Brazilian cachaca liquor and muddled kumquats. And enter to win a ‘Brazilian’ service (you know what we mean!), compliments of sola.
Want to sip Brady’s Brazilian at home? We snagged the recipe for you.
2 oz Cachaca // 5 oz triple sec // 5 oz kumquat syrup // 2 oz soda
For the syrup: In a sauce pot combine 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, 8 kumquats halved and 1/2 fresh vanilla bean. Bring to a boil and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool. Once cooled, fill a large cocktail glass with ice. Add the all ingredients, sliced limes, mint and halved kumquats.
Stir and cha cha cha!
Carol is also whipping up a Pu Pu Platter featuring Hawaiian inspired wings, tuna sliders and her famous edamame ($15). Other specials include tropical cocktails like the Pretty in Pink ($12) and Wicked Wahine ($10), which is concocted with housemade candied ginger vodka, star anise, pineapple, passion fruit juices and black pepper. It’s Super Fun!
