I have some of the greatest friends, have I mentioned that? I was over at the Jones' this week for dinner and was lucky to have Bray make an amazing, almost vegan meal that was incredibly delicious and incredibly time-consuming. What a guy! He started things off with mushroom lettuce wraps drizzled with a tamari reduction, followed by two amazing salads (one of which his too young for words wife made) and the main consisted of a ridiculously amazing breaded eggplant topped with tomato pure casserole thing that I can't even describe. The guy knows what he's doing. And if that wasn't enough, I was also treated to an amazing ginger ale made from scratch! Good lord this man. Here is the recipe for the drink, the other items involved too much blood, sweat and tears for me to post. Ginger Ale Drank* 1/2 cup ginger, grated 3/4 cup sweetener - honey, coconut sugar, etc 2 cups water 2 cinnamon sticks San Benedetto sparkling water Reduce all ingredients to a syrup, add to sparkling water and enjoy! I feel like you could make a raw version by blitzing the ingredients in your blender rather than reducing. I'll try and let you all know if it works out. Thanks Jones, I love you guys (that includes Penny and Moses too)! xo *Mr. Jones asked I give credit for this recipe to his friend Kate Ziegler.
