Wine News: How to start wine-tasting club

"It's Bordeaux night for the girlfriends who call themselves the Drinkettes. In the back room at the 17th Street Cafe here, a long table is jammed with wine glasses ready for the women, who arrive for dinner at 7 p.m., each with a bottle of Bordeaux in hand. In moments, the wine tasting is in full swing.

Half of the Drinkettes are there to catch up on the gossip while others, who have brought their own deep-bowl wine glasses, are furiously swirling, sniffing, sipping and writing copious tasting notes.

"It's about connecting with each other when our busy lives make it easy to lose touch," says Janel Dreeka, the group's founder and leader. "And it's fun to discover the nuances of wine, to appreciate the seduction and sensuality of wine with friends."

Getting a wine-tasting group going and keeping it going when no one knows much about wine is a matter of organization, say the pros. A smart way to start is to decide on the style for your tasting, set a theme for the wines, then agree on a budget.

For novice wine lovers, smaller groups of eight to 10 people are easier to organize than large groups. Once-a-month meetings are easier to sustain than more frequent gatherings."

Recipe News: A buffet of recipes provides 101 ways to waste away again

"I would use these recipes throughout the summer, who says it has to be Cinco de Mayo?

Friday's Cinco de Mayo celebrations signal the start of margarita season for most folks, although true aficionados of the tequila-based temptress know her as a 365-day-a-year, tall drink of firewater.

Drop into San Francisco tequila emporiums Tres Agaves, Colibri Mexican Bistro or Tommy's Mexican Restaurant on a cold January night to see how hot the margarita is here. With an ever-increasing selection of premium tequilas, access to fresh limes and other fruits, and high-end flavorings like agave syrup and Cointreau liqueur, Margarita has stepped out from under her beachside palapa and away from the solamente para Cinco de Mayo (only for May 5) set to become a serious cocktail for all seasons.

In "101 Margaritas" (John Wiley & Sons, 128 pages, $15.95), bartender Kim Haasarud offers 99 recipes for tequila-based cocktails -- and two alcohol-free versions -- that fall under the margarita umbrella and can be made by the home mixologist. "

Includes recipes for:


  • Classic Margarita

  • Avocado-Cilantro Margarita
