One of the ladies on my team at ecofabulous braved the crowds last week to see Sex and The City. And what she took away from it was a strong hankering for a Cosmopolitan. Better than a Manolo craving! So we've set out to make the delectable Cosmo truly ecofabulous. Here's how:
1. Pour in two parts Modmix (Modmix concocts the most delicious Pomegranate Cosmopolitan mixer made entirely from certified organic ingredients).

Craig Stoll will not confirm if he cried on Sunday night in New York while accepting his James Beard Award for Best Chef from the Pacific region. (But let’s just say when I asked him he didn't say no, which we all know—when you’re dealing with men—means yes.) Stoll was up against some serious Bay Area competition too, including David Kinch from Manresa, Doug Keane from Cyrus, Michael Tusk from Quince and David Meyers from Sona in LA.

I don’t generally assign myself any weekend goals—I figure it’s enough to get my laundry done—but this last beautiful weekend I was hot on two projects: To get myself outside, on a hike, in the countryside, and to check out the not-so-new Oxbow Public Market in Napa. I’m happy to report that both were accomplished in one fell swoop. After an 8-mile up-hill midday hike in Santa Rosa, my companion and I, hungry and thirsty to the point of silence, drove the 30-odd miles from the state park to Napa, arriving around 5 p.m.
