Every year on SideDish, we like to devote our energy to supporting small local food businesses here in DFW. For the twelve days, we’ll be highlighting jams, jellies, pies, classes, wines, coffees, teas, and basically any food product made locally on Dallas (or close to it) soil. Today is Drinkables Day. If you’ve got a product that you want included, send me an email with your information and a picture. This list will often be updated, so don’t fret about deadlines. We’re here to serve you guys.
Coffeemaker Kevin Sprague makes top notch roasts in East Dallas. His Noble Coyote Coffee (David Hopkins expounds upon Sprague’s process in this Edible DFW piece, pgs. 24-25) is well balanced and fresh, and all the flavors are made from fair trade beans grown from using sustainable methods. Sprague also says he’s going to do something special for all you guys, because it is, you know, almost Christmas. He will:
The lovely Stephanie Sanoja, inventor of this ready-to-serve Bloody Mary mix, has a special holiday label, so it’s ready to gift, as well. She writes: “Garden District Bloody Marys are available at all kinds of local spots like Kindred spirits, Talulah Belle, Pogos, Bolsa Mercado and will soon grace the shelves of biggies like Specs.” The gift tag lets you write in a name and recipient, so it’s a perfect hostess gift.
Oak Cliff Cellars has holiday gift packs available in two, three, and four bottle samplers. Ship packs directly to whoever you desire, but make sure you order before December 10 if you want the pack to arrive before Christmas! Check out all the offerings right here.
