2725 State Street, Carlsbad, CA, United States



As Thanksgiving crept up closer on our calendars and we began to think about our team’s Giving Gathering 2.0 (read about last years here), we were decidedly against cooking, planning and designing the perfect seated meal. Instead, we chose to get out into our local community, support a burgeoning business whose values align just so with our own and simply enjoy a shared meal with The Venue Report family where we could reflect on the past year and not only be full of thanks, but also of giving.  

Questions that are staying at the forefronts of our minds include: What worries you? What ignites a spark in you? What can you do to make a positive impact on our future?

The beginning of fall is often welcomed by all things pumpkin overwhelming every grocery store shelf, coffee shop and recipe. You may be thinking, “I am SO over pumpkin well… everything.” Don’t fret, for we have a fresh fall recipe full of pumpkin like you’ve never tasted before. It’s the perfect make-ahead drink to take along to your fall picnics, backyard gatherings and seasonal parties that will have all who try it passionate for pumpkin.

The libation crafters at Barçon Cocktail Co. are sharing their impossibly tasty recipe for The Indian Summer drink. It’s sweet yet tart with notes of spice and fruit so, if you like flavors of lemon, cinnamon or pumpkin, this is the drink for you. If a smoky flavor profile is more your thing, check out another one of our favorites, The Great Smoky Cocktail, here.
