Galentine’s Day has caught on in a big way, you guys, and I’m loving the new tradition. The charming Ruthie and Kachet recently organized quite the soiree at Hock Farm Craft & Provisions, one of the tastiest farm-to-fork eateries around! Ten lovely ladies gathered for delicious cocktails, dinner and dessert, the latter of which was my favorite, natch. (Check it out below).
Such a fun group! I came right after work, so I missed the group photo, but I joined just in time for cocktails and conversation at the table.
My Galentine’s Day attire was decidedly dressed down. Demi boot cut jeans and a light jacket with pops of pink for a little bit of a festive vibe.
The bar is so gorgeous. I love the combination of traditional and modern decor. Just out of the shot is this gorgeous wood table carved in the shape of California.

These two cocktails were so tasty. On the left is The Bird & the Bee, which was a refreshing mix of Griffo dry gin, creme de cacao, wildflower honey, and fresh lemon – all served up with a spiced strawberry-sugar rim. The cocktail on the right is totally my style. It’s the Old Fashioned Banana Cocktail with roasted banana-infused Sonoma Brothers bourbon, raw sugar, and chai-infused angostura bitters.
This is the dessert that I couldn’t get enough of! It’s called the Dark Chocolate Cremeux and is made with pistachio, blood orange, and oreo cookie crumb.
