The Chronicle Over Cocktails

Did you miss this? We’ve been inconsistent about posting the Friday Chronicle Over Cocktails roundup lately, and we’re sorry. Have a double-shot of the following:

• The Chron names Ehren Jordan, of Turley Wine Cellars, its Winemaker Of The Year. There are also plenty of Winemakers To Watch in the sidebar. [Winemaker of the Year: Ehren Jordan]

• Selections gets into the festive spirit with a look at small-batch Champagnes. [The Chronicle Wine Selections: Grower Champagne]

• And to go with that Champagne, Pairings suggests a big bucket of steamed mussels with andouille sausage. [Chill the Champagne for steamed mussels ]

• The Cheese Course features a Camembert-style cheese made from cows that “never see the inside of a barn.” [Splendor in Sweet Grass’ Green Hill]

• And the Cocktailian gives us a merciful break from all that freaking holiday eggnog: A “sangree” made with scotch, Cabernet, and some other stuff. [Make an eggnog hater merry with a Single-Malt Sangree]
