pür Spirits, MistralKitchen & LUPEC

It was another great meeting in September, this time with Kiki Braverman and her line of pür Spirits taking center stage at MistralKitchen. Kiki's company distills interesting liqueurs and vodkas in Germany. The business is in the process of moving from Seattle to San Francisco so it was a great opportunity for the ladies to hear all about it before she left.

MistralKitchen's bar manager Andrew Bohrer came up with 5 specialty cocktails each using the pür Spirits products.

-Roman Holiday: pür Blood Orange, Earl Grey tea, orange juice, Cabernet, Tuaca

-Pear Caipirinha: pür Pear Liqueur, muddled lime and Cachaca

-Stonewall Cocktail: pür Beirbrand, pür Elderflower Liqueur, dash of biters (in the style of a Manhatten)

-Sloe Collins: pür Sloe Vodka, lemon, Cassis & soda

-Framboise Sour: pür Framboise Vodka, lemon, sugar, egg white and Absinthe

Andrew, Amber and the team did a fantastic job keeping up with the drink orders and even resorting to alternative glassware when the dishwasher wasn't as fast as they needed. And the space at MistralKitchen was great! One private room with lots of cubes to sit on and another semi private space perfect for mingling and chatting. I kept noticing patrons of the restaurant looking at our group, wondering why we were having such a good time & they weren't invited (especially the men! ha!)

Chef and owner William Belickis and his kitchen sent out amazing pork belly sliders, cheese plates and pizzas. Pastry Chef Neil Robertson sent out delicious chocolate brownie bites right at the end of the evening.

Big thanks to everyone who made the night so much fun! And all the best to Kiki in her new home of San Francisco!
