Tipsy Cow Burger Bar: A New Spin on American Fare Favorites

August 20, 2014 12:02 pm

The Tipsy Cow Burger Bar is a old fashioned fast food joint that serves high-end takes on American fare favorites. All of the beef here is 100% pasture-raised from Long Valley Ranch, while the buns are sourced fresh daily from Seattle’s famed Macrina Bakery. What's more, the fries are hand-cut from Kennebec potatoes.

You'll likely taste the difference these ingredients make in Tipsy Burger's signature cheeseburger, which is complemented by Beecher’s white cheddar, Walla Walla sweet onions, and house-made pickles. Or try the Beast Mode with ground buffalo, blue cheese, and bacon jalapeno relish. If you’re not feeling like red meat, regulars rave about the ahi tuna sandwich with nori seaweed and wasabi aioli. Tipsy Cow Burger Bar also offers a selection of draft beers, wines, and cocktails.

Tipsy Cow Burger Bar is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Kick Back and Relax With These Summertime Mocktails

August 13, 2014 12:03 pm

If you prefer a drink that’s light on the alcohol but still big on taste, there are a number of tasty summertime mocktails that will cool you down on a hot day. Forgoing the gin, vodka, or Prosecco doesn’t make these delicious drinks any less perfect, and they even look just as pretty as the real things. Here are three warm weather mocktails that are perfect for sipping by the pool.

Pear Sparkler
This sparkling beverage goes down smoothly and tastes sweet, but it also offers warm, hearty undertones more commonly found in autumn recipes. Pear juice is a unique alternative to the usual fruit juices found in most cocktails, and adding fresh herbs, ginger, honey, and lemon juice creates an even more complex flavor.

Virgin Grapefruit Mojito
When it comes to mocktails, many people prefer to take a tried-and-true cocktail recipe and simply remove the alcohol. This virgin mojito contains the same roughly torn mint leaves as the original rum-filled version, but it incorporates grapefruit soda and pieces of fresh grapefruit to give it a taste that’s all its own.

Mango Lassi
If you feel left out from icy summer cocktails like margaritas and daiquiris, you’ll adore this cold Mango Lassi. Fresh, juicy mango is blended with ice to create a sweet base, while buttermilk, honey, and cardamom add a warm, rich taste. For even more flavor, top with toasted pistachios.
