Dia de los muertos, the day of the dead, is observed across Mexico on November 1 and 2. The lively celebration includes colorful decorations and elaborate offered (altars) that offer food and drink to welcome the souls of the deceased back into the world of the living. And as long as there is signature dishes and drinks which must be present on every table and altar, some producers offer creative versions of some of the classics. Here are five you can enjoy in Mexico City right now.

Pulque de cempasuchil

Dona Vero runs a very popular restaurant, known for its menu offering unusual dishes such as quesadillas of deer marinated in mezcal and quirky seasonal specialties. For Day of the Dead festivities, she serves pulque – an ancient fermented drink derived from agave sap – infused with marigold flowers, known in Mexico as cempasuchil (cem-pah-soo-cheel). It’s a family recipe that his mother used to prepare the altar for her grandparents.

Cempasúchil flowers are emblematic of the festivities, believed to attract the souls of the dead to the altars with their strong and unique aroma. The flowers are edible, of course, and give a bright orange color to any food or drink.

The mildly alcoholic drink may be an acquired taste for some, but Doña Vero sells frosty cup after cup to her legions of fans.

Pan de Muerto Negro

To Panaderia Rosettecelebrity chef Elena Reygadas’ upscale bakery, the seasonal hit is pan de muerto. This soft brioche bread is flavored with anise and orange blossom water, decorated with strips of bone-like dough. It’s not a Day of the Dead celebration without it, widely enjoyed with coffee or hot chocolate for breakfast or late night dinner.

At Rosetta, however, they added a twist by coating the loaves in powdered corn husk ash before adding the traditional granulated sugar topping. The result is striking and delicious, and a tribute to ancient pre-Hispanic cooking techniques.

Ofrenda flavored ice cream

Heladeria Escandon is an ice cream shop owned by Ilian Castañeda Vázquez and Maximiliano Olvera García, in the heart of Colonia Condesa. Their goal is to produce artisanal ice cream and ‘punksicles’ in unusual shapes and flavors, showcasing seasonal offerings and creative combinations.

For Day of the Dead, Max transformed the entire case of ice cream into an ice cream ofrenda, with flavors reminiscent of the traditional foods usually found on people’s altars.

Among those depicted are the cinnamon cookie, guavatejocote (hawthorn) and double chocolate, alongside unusual offerings such as Mexican pumpkin, pan de muerto and, yes, cempasúchil. He uses fresh flowers to make an infusion, then adds tiny flecks of petals and leaves and mixes them into the creamy mixture. The result is soft and floral, with hints of vanilla cream. To accompany the ice cream, the team also makes dark chocolate skulls and golden pan de muerto.

Gordimuertas

Made from corn dough and filled with a variety of ingredients, gorditas are a street food staple in Mexico. At the famous Jamaica Market, in the ready meals section, Las Weritas are famous for their generously filled snacks with all the trimmings. This year, the popular stand takes them a step further by making them with blue corn and shaped like a pan de muerto.

The Nahuala is filled with sautéed squash blossoms and mushrooms, topped with Philadelphia cheese for an extra creamy consistency. If you like it spicy, order La Llorona, identical to Nahuala, but with added habanero pepper for that extra tear-inducing zing.

Victoria Cempasuchil

Last but not least, Cerveceria Modelo entered the flavored beer arena with Victoria Cempasuchil. Made in Mexico with cempasúchil flower extract, it doesn’t have the strong aroma or flavor of the flowers, but it is a unique infusion. Yellowish-orange in color, it is slightly hazy, with light floral and cereal notes on the nose. The flavor is sweet and malty, slightly bitter and refreshing. At 4.2% AVB, it’s meant to be paired with seasonal foods such as mole, spicy foods, and even pan de muerto.

With the onset of fall and the turning of the leaves, students often like to sip their favorite drinks while studying and enjoying the orange and red sight. While for some a simple drink from the dining room or local convenience store fridge will do, others enjoy complex, beautifully crafted coffees with flavors that remind them of fall.

Morgan Potts, a freshman commerce student, said her current favorite drink award should go to the ever-popular Dr. Pepper.

She said she drinks it almost three times a day and has even found herself replacing it with water due to what she says tastes better.

Potts said being on campus gave him the freedom to drink his favorite beverage more frequently.

“I started drinking it when I got here because it’s in the mess halls and I don’t really drink it at home because my parents didn’t really let me drink sodas and juices. “, she said.

Lilly Latkovic, a freshman studying wildlife conservation biology, said her favorite drink really depends on the season and her mood, but two drinks really stood out for her as good stablemates.

She said that while she enjoyed a glass of Pepsi with food, when it came to coffee, she was a huge fan of caramel macchiatos with oat milk.

Latkovic said she likes the smooth texture of oat milk compared to regular milk because dairy tends to upset her stomach. She said drinking the macchiato put her in the right frame of mind for her schoolwork.

“I guess when I drink it, it makes me feel so in college, especially in the fall when I’ve had my coffee and done my homework,” she said.

Jack Zwiezinski, a freshman journalism student, said his favorite drink was an Arizona green tea, although he thought he wouldn’t like it at first.

According to Zwiezinski, they went to a gas station one day with their friends and although they would normally have gone straight for a sweet tea, they decided to try their luck with a new drink and were not disappointed.

“I love the can and its design, and it’s the best thing I’ve ever had in my life,” they said.

Zwiezinski said something about the drink hits the perfect spot every time.

“It makes me feel good,” they said. “It makes me feel whole.”

Freshman Lee Stanforth, a psychology major, said he’s a big fan of a good mocha in the fall. Stanforth said their love for mocha started relatively early in their coffee-drinking experience.

“There’s a little cafe where I’m from that has really good mochas, and I’ve had them since middle school,” they said.

Stanforth said the mocha flavors gave a reassuring feeling that they really enjoyed.

“The sweetness of this one reminds me of home,” they said. “It reminds me of warm weather and fall. It’s just very comforting.

Maddi Raisch, a young business student, said that although she loves all pumpkin flavored drinks, pumpkin chais have become one of her favorites.

Raisch said she was introduced to pumpkin chais by her mother, a heavy Starbucks drinker.

“My mom definitely introduced me to the drink,” she said. “She’s always been a big fan of Starbucks so the first time I had this flavor of drink was at Starbucks but now that I’m in Athens we have a bunch of different coffees and I prefer it. ‘get in a local place.’

Raish said his drink definitely reminded him of fall and the changing seasons.

“It definitely reminds me of this time of year just because the flavor of cinnamon and pumpkin is associated with fall, and it really makes me feel good,” she said. “It’s like a very intimate feeling.”

IIf you love your nightly (or weekly) sips and you’re pregnant or planning to become pregnant, it’s helpful to know what’s out there in the realm of safe non-alcoholic beverages before, during and after pregnancy. Since alcohol (apart from casual glass of red wine) is not advised during pregnancy, these drinks will help fill the void if you find yourself with a specific craving.

“Most non-alcoholic beverages are uniquely crafted and may include something vague like ‘natural flavors’ on the ingredient label,” says the celebrity chef and nutritionist. Serena Poon. “Some herbs to watch [and avoid] include: sage, thyme, oil of oregano, lavender, safflower and comfrey. »

If you can’t find any information on the label or online, Poon recommends emailing the manufacturer asking for information about specific ingredients or pregnancy safety. Another option is to go directly to your doctor with the non-alcoholic beverages you hope to incorporate into your pregnancy routine. They will be able to approve or reject the concoctions.

Now that the talk of safety is over, it’s time to discover the best non-alcoholic cocktails, spirits and more.

Best non-alcoholic drinks for pregnancy

1. Best non-alcoholic spirits

More non-alcoholic spirits are hitting the market and as a result the flavor profiles are only getting better, making them all the closer to the real thing.

“It definitely depends on the brand and your preferences, but non-alcoholic spirits usually don’t taste the same as real ones, but often very, very close,” says Poon. “In my opinion, a non-alcoholic spirit is not necessarily meant to be an exact replica of the alcoholic version, but provides a basis for being able to participate in your social and relaxation rituals without the negative effects (hangovers, questionable decisions, etc. ).” Plus, they’re usually completely fine to consume if you’re pregnant.

If you have any concerns, again, consult your doctor. But if and when you feel comfortable participating, consider the non-alcoholic spirits below (as well as Poon’s top non-alcoholic cocktail hints).

If you like a good Bloody Mary, try a blank version.

This non-alcoholic cocktail packed with nutrients from tomato juice, like lycopene, which is a powerful antioxidant, and all the extra toppings, like celery sticks (high in fiber!), horseradish (antioxidant properties!), and garlic (supports immune function!),” she exclaims.

If you like Palomas, try a non-alcoholic version.

Made with freshly squeezed grapefruit and lime juice, sparkling water and non-alcoholic tequila, a paloma non-alcoholic cocktail is a great option for getting a delicious dose of vitamin C,” says Poon. “It’s always a good idea to drink them in moderation as the sugar content of freshly squeezed juice can add up.”

Dreaming of a martini? Make one without the alcohol.

“A Dirty Martini contains olive juice, which is high in the antioxidant vitamin E,” says Poon. “A dirty martini would also cover up any flavor differences with your non-alcoholic vodka or gin.”

Fancy a seasonal mocktail? Try a spiced apple cider with non-alcoholic rum or whiskey.

Cider can be a bit high in sugar (and I would definitely skip any added sugar), but I love the spice in this drink,” admits Poon. “Cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice all offer wonderful health benefits by providing anti-inflammatory properties to support heart health and more.”

That said, she points out that some believe nutmeg is dangerous during pregnancy, so it’s best to consult your doctor or skip it altogether if you’re expecting.

Do you miss your mule days in Moscow? Moscow mule mocktails are one thing.

“I like this non-alcoholic cocktail for its fresh spices,” says Poon. “Moscow mules contain fresh ginger and mint, each of which may support digestive function. Instead of using simple syrup or added sweetener, I make my Moscow Mullet Mocktails with ginger flavored sparkling water.

2. Best non-alcoholic beer

Like regular beer, non-alcoholic beer contains hops. “Hops contain phytoestrogens, so some experts say to avoid hops during pregnancy,” says Poon.

That said, it’s up to you to talk with your doctor about what’s best for you during your pregnancy. If you find that non-alcoholic beer is allowed, see some options below to consider.

3. Best non-alcoholic wine

The wine is made with fermented grapes. Non-alcoholic wine is made with grapes that have not yet fermented or with grapes that have been fermented and then dealcoholized. This is done by reverse osmosis and vacuum distillation.

Although most of the alcohol is removed, it is common for there to be traces of the fermentation process, but it is comparable to that of kombucha, which is safe to drink during pregnancy. Either way, there are plenty of non-alcoholic wines (which are basically fancy grape juice) to choose from. See below for some options.

Are mocktails healthier than cocktails?

Not necessarily! “Alcohol can be really hard on your body– studies have shown that it can lead to inflammation, destruction of the gut microbiome, liver, heart and neurological problems, and even cancer,” says Poon. That said, she points out that mocktails often contain a lot of added sugar.

Eating too much sugar can lead to inflammation, cardiovascular problems, weight gain, and other conditions,” says Poon. “One is not necessarily better than the other – the important thing is that you minimize your alcohol consumption when you are not pregnant (and avoid it during pregnancy) and that you be aware of what goes into your mocktails and cocktails.”

Air over Healdsburg:

Here’s what the air looked like over Healdsburg earlier this morning. (Photo courtesy of Holly Wilson)

Here are the top 3 stories from today in Healdsburg:

  1. If the Alexander Valley Film Society (AVFilm) ends up realizing its dream of building a movie theater in downtown Healdsburg next year, liquor license and parking fees won’t be a problem, according to the Healdsburg Tribune. “Acting with unusual speed” ahead of last Monday’s city council meeting, “City of Healdsburg staff drafted a new city policy governing the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages in downtown movie theaters – approving to preventively a proposal from AVFilms, which has not yet agreed on the location of its Palace cinema in the city center”, reports the Tribune. “The exception for theaters or auditoriums with live audiences to purchase and consume alcohol was necessary because in 2017 the council voted to limit alcoholic beverage businesses to one per block face in the downtown commercial area. This measure was seen as a way to control the number of tasting rooms in the downtown central business district. fees for downtown businesses, again to encourage a wider range of downtown businesses. The requirement for mandatory parking spaces or an “in lieu” fee that would allow a business to pay money in compensation for not being able to provide the parking spaces has evolved over several years. ‘planning commission and city council study.’ All good news for AVFilm’s theater prospects! In response, Kathryn Hecht, director of the film company, reportedly gave a thank you to the City of Healdsburg staff in particular for being so proactive.” (Healdsburg Grandstand)
  2. Bill Konrad, the former owner of historic Madrona Manor on his way out of town, reportedly died last month in his early 80s. Looks like he lived just long enough to see the mansion renovated and reopened this year under new management. Bill was a Bay Area lawyer who moved to Healdsburg with his wife Trudi in 1999. The couple “started a new chapter in their lives when they purchased Madrona Manor and became innkeepers,” his obituary reads. “Bill had a passion for food and was thrilled to own a Michelin-starred restaurant. He reveled in meet guests from all over the world and build friendships with many of them. He has always enjoyed travel, food and wine, and spending time with his family in the peaceful surroundings of his Healdsburg home.” May he rest in peace. (Healdsburg Crest & Forbes)
  3. The Best Western Dry Creek Inn, which large hotel just off the 101 near Adel’s, just opened a new boutique hotel within its own walls called “The Lodge at Healdsburg” – part of the “Tapestry Collection by Hilton”. The hostel carried out an “extensive, multimillion-dollar interior renovation of its Villa Toscana building” that essentially converted the building’s 60 rooms into smaller, more sophisticated and likely more expensive “villas.” You can now make reservations for stays from March 2023. More details in the press release: “The Lodge at Healdsburg offers modern rooms designed by Studio Atwater Inc. Inspired by surrounding valleys, redwoods and the Russian River, the elevated aesthetic draws hues of sage green, navy blue, ivory and copper for a warm and intimate feel. The well-furnished rooms feature timeless European furnishings paired with rustic woods, natural stones, and Tuscan-inspired tiling in the bathrooms. Outdoor spaces transport guests to a Tuscan countryside with olive trees, bright red flowers, and natural graphite-colored furniture. The 60 rooms of the hotel’s renovated villa each have a king bed, new furniture and parquet floors, a freestanding bathtub, a fireplace in the room, a Nespresso machine and local art celebrating wine country.” (Hospitality Net & The Lodge at Healdsburg)

Brighten up your Diwali card party on a tasty note

Maps, drinks, conviviality and all that jazz!

Diwali is just days away and the celebrations have already begun.

And if you’re ready to ring in the festivities by hosting a card game in your home sweet home, we’re here to help you set the bar menu!

Here are five non-alcoholic beverages you can make and serve to your guests.

Mix fresh orange juice with a little lemon juice in a mixing bowl.

Now take glasses and add ice cubes to them. Pour the mixture into them until they are half full.

Then pour soda into it with a pinch of salt.

Garnish them with a few crushed mint leaves and orange slices, and if needed, add more ice cubes. Easy and tasty, right?

You would need almonds, cashews, pistachios, melon seeds, poppy seeds, dried rose petals, fennel seeds, black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, raisins and a little sugar.

Soak all these ingredients in water except milk and sugar for four to six hours.

Once done, add the sugar and grind them with milk to form a smooth paste.

Use a muslin cloth to drain it and serve chilled.

To make a non-alcoholic pomegranate mojito, divide the pomegranate seeds in an ice cube tray a day ahead.

Cover the tray with water and freeze.

Now use a rolling pin to crush the mint and lime until they release juice.

Put this juice in a pitcher and top it with pomegranate juice, lemonade, and club soda.

Add the pomegranate ice cubes, strain and serve chilled.

Take a jug and add apple slices, lemon slices, cinnamon sticks and star anise.

Now pour apple juice, lemon juice and honey into it. Mix well and refrigerate for one hour.

Once cooled, take glasses and add ice cubes to them.

Fill half with chilled juice and fill the rest with club soda.

Garnish with apple slices and serve.

To make lavender lemonade, combine water and sugar in a saucepan and heat it up.

Add honey and dried lavender to it and let the mixture steep like tea.

Now is the time to strain the mixture and remove the dried lavender.

Then mix this mixture with lemon juice, water and ice in a pitcher.

To achieve a darker shade, add edible color.

As fall brings changing leaves and weather, it also brings changes to many menus and to my own palate. Pumpkin spice lattes are a staple at most cafes, and I wait patiently year-round for restocking. The perfect blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice melts on my tongue bringing me straight into the fall season.






In Athens, chilly autumn days can be rare, making it the perfect place to enjoy an icy drink while sweating it out between classes. As cool weather approaches, hot beverages will help warm you up while snuggling up by a fireplace under a toasty blanket — or in the freezing campus libraries and classrooms. And for those who hate pumpkin spice, no worries, there are plenty of other drinks to enjoy!

As a former barista, I put my knowledge of coffee tasting to the test by trying several drinks from local and national cafes around Athens.

For those who hate pumpkin

Editor’s note: As we produced the fall issue of Ampersand, several llocal cafes didn’t offer Pumpkin Spice Lattes yet. We tried these lavender options instead for all pumpkin spice averse readers.

From ill-advised late-night cold brew to perfectly shot morning espresso, getting your java hits differently when purchased from a local gay-owned establishment, and Austin is spoiled for choice. Here are three gay-owned coffee companies whose mugs are taking our beautiful city’s purple crown.

Luna Espresso

Most people know Luna Espresso (lunaespresso.com) by its original name, Stay While, which it had when it was in the on-site shipping container and the interior bar of the Little Gay Shop. But the company launched by Danielle Garcia in January 2020 has, like many of us over the past three years, evolved. Now named after Luna, Garcia’s pit bull pup, the caffeine dealer left its physical location after Garcia put all of his chips in a moving cart. This gamble paid off in a partnership with the Moody Center. So far, Garcia says they’ve served Americanos and cold beer to the backstage crew of Kevin Hart, Florence + the Machine and a certain Mr. Harold Styles. Having the portable cafe business also means Garcia can provide a safe space for queer people looking to connect without minds: “With the queer community [it’s] like you either go to a bar or you go to something more that you have to be of age for, and coffee is a new avenue.”

Recommended: cappuccino, aka Garcia’s “perfect drink”.

patika

The story of coffee and baking heaven partners Andy Wigginton and Nick Krupa begins in another gay city: San Francisco circa 2005. A taste test of Blue Bottle Coffee at a farmer’s market sent their taste buds into a new journey to find “really good coffee”, as Wigginton puts it, until eventually this search became Patika (2159 S. Lamar, patikacoffee.com) in 2010. Originally a mobile cart, the cafe became South Lamar’s brick and mortar, where they serve Wigginton and Krupa’s own Superthing Roasted Beans. For Wigginton, the difference between owning a café and any other restaurant is stark: “[A] regular at a restaurant maybe comes once a month, you know, if it’s crazy once a week,” he says. “But the cafes, they come every day. And so it’s your very fast track to learning more about these people and being part of their daily experience. This daily experience also includes the delicious pastries and brunch program of Culinary Director Bria Jones, who developed the brown butter syrup behind the recent Patika. addition to the menu, the latte with brown butter and cinnamon.

Recommended: Obviously try this brown butter and cinnamon latte, but Wigginton also stands for their cappuccino because “we do the milk right [and] we pull the espresso on the right.”

Marie’s Coffee

Red River is home to many great cafes, and Mary’s Café (3209 Red River, maryscafeatx.com) — an eight-year-old institution for coffee, breakfast and good times — is among the best. Owner Kenneth Gambone, who named the cafe after his mother who gave him a kidney in his youth, started Mary’s to create a community and social space that his previous restaurant work lacked. Being located near both UT-Austin and St. David’s Main Street, the cafe’s forward-thinking approach is meant to accommodate people from all walks of life. “Our goal is just to accept everyone for who they are when they arrive… especially with the hospital. [near us]you don’t know what anybody did that day,” Gambone says. “So we always try to lead by just being nice… When we have queer people coming in, of course, we’re very nice. “

Recommended: While Gambone personally enjoys a simple black Americano, her advice is to pair the double-shot caramel latte with one of their signature Liège waffles, made with sweet yeast dough.
