miracle fruit tasting – sneak peek a success

Posted by chaska on November 13, 2008

1108miraclesm We had our first sneak peek tasting of Miracle Fruit the other night and had tons of fun trying all kinds of normal and not so normal fare with it. Stephen Dennison, a fantastic and edgy mixologist and chef here in Louisville was in attendance and we had a great time working through our tasting and taking notes.

Stay tuned for more details.
