Shawn Barker, resident mixologist for Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group, has created a haute cuisine holiday “liquid dessert” called the Sobieski Red Velvet martini. Serve up this seasonal cocktail to friends and families this holiday as it’ll  be sure to add a festive kick to any gathering. In his latest concoction, Barker suggests using Sobieski Vanilia with its brown sugar and hazelnut nose and sublime caramel finish. wandermelon loves this luscious little sipper.

  2. International SIM card on November 17, 2010 at 2:45 am

    Christmas is one of my favorite days of the entire year, because we could have good food, different decoration, spending time with friends and family. I like to travel many places where I feel out of crowd, with family and friends.

    We do lots of enjoyment there and enjoy with many activities based on destination. I also enjoy saving money, so that saved money i could enjoy other place. I would suggest having less roaming international SIM cards, or calling cards. Really I saved much money and spent it other places.

    Finally, Merry Christmas!
