Garden to Glass

Eating and drinking clean during the holidays is like trying to find Christmas snow in South Florida. It’s impossible—unless you know where to go.

Consider this our gift to you: Farmer’s Table (1901 N. Military Trail, Boca Raton; 561.417.5836) offers an organic-themed cocktail menu with indulgent libations that include ingredients grown on site.
Health-conscious revelers can feel good about sipping the whiskey-based Fig & Froth, the Spa-Day with cucumber vodka, the Orchard Mule with ginger beer or the refreshing Strawberry-Jalapeño Skinny Margarita. All are handcrafted—minus the artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, high-fructose corn syrups, gluten and trans fats found in typical cocktails. Instead, the mixologists at Farmer’s Market add flavor with sustainable plants and herbs picked from the restaurant’s own organic garden.

“It’s one of the most successful bar programs I’ve ever seen from both the ease of execution to the tremendous guest response,” says Farmer’s Table co-owner Joey Giannuzzi. “The feedback has been stunning.”

Grab drinks at the bar, on the outdoor patio or in a rustic-contemporary dining room decorated with funky bottle chandeliers and authentic barn-wood walls. There’s also an innovative “mocktail” selection, extensive wine list and farm-to-table menu with salads, appetizers, flatbreads, entrées and desserts.
For a toast with a kick, we recommend the aforementioned Skinny Margarita. Farmer’s Table was kind enough to share its exclusive recipe with our readers.

1.5 ounces Cimarron tequila
Splash of agave nectar
Splash of lemon juice
Splash of lime juice
Splash of water
Muddled jalapeño
