Baladin Cedrata

Baladin – CEDRATA SODA A journey for the tastes of times gone by. A taste that our memory has registered but has been hiding for a very long time. This is what Cedrata Baladin represents. Its ingredients are simply water, natural brown sugar, lemon juice, carbon dioxide, and the infusion of Calabria citron from Diamante, which gives it its distinctive aroma and flavor. Cedrata Baladin is produced with simple and selected ingredients and contains no colorings or preservatives. A unique drink with an unmistakable taste.

Baladin Cedrata is Lemon soda. It has a nice natural tasting honeyed sweetness, but no bitterness. It’s OK, but I’d prefer something along the lines of bitter lemon. This is Kid stuff.

Downton Abbey & Savoy Hotel

The other day I received an invitation to an event in London celebrating the life and legacy of Harry Craddock and the launch of Jared Brown and Anistatia Miller‘s new book, “The Deans of Drink“.

As a blogger, my usual response it, “Gee, thanks for the invite, but I live in San Francisco and am not independently wealthy.”

Thinking about it a bit more, it seemed like it was something I should at least try to get to, so I contacted a friend, Trevor Easter, who worked for the liquor company sponsoring the event, and he said he would talk to his superiors.

Unfortunately, the company had made the decision that they weren’t sending anyone from the West Coast to the event.

I was bummed.

But, Trevor Easter, being the swell guy that he is, said, well, I can’t give you money, but I have lots of Gin. Maybe we can do an event, and you can make some tips toward the ticket.

Couple hours later, I get a text, a phone call, and an email. “Quick, get back to me, I think we can do something. H is doing a thing for the Downton Abbey premiere at Elixir and an English Gin event would be perfect. You can make some Savoy Cocktails with Plymouth Gin and some money towards your ticket.”

Righto! Tally Ho! Carry Forth Jeeves!

So I’ll be making some Plymouth Gin Cocktails at Elixir on Sunday after 8 PM and hopefully making a little money towards the ticket to London.

Stop by and enjoy a Gin Cocktail or two and help me get there!
