Mr. RC, aka the resident RC drink expert, is back with his latest Bar Cart beverage. On the menu this month- the perfect cocktail for celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Cheers!


Talk about a blast from the past


and allow myself to reintroduce... myself. For those of you new to Runway Chef, my name is Dave, aka Mr. RC, and other half to my lovely and talented partner in crime, Alyssa. While she is the true creative genius to this whole site, she sometimes allows me to be creative on some of my passions, in this case, cocktail creations via Mr. RC’s Bar Cart. Let’s dive in shall we!

A while back when the Mrs. was traveling in Australia, I did what any normal guy would do when left to their devices... sports, food, drinks (a dash of cleaning), sports, food, drinks, you get the idea. Stuck in the “drink” phase of this pattern, my inner creative (and thirst) was craving something fresh, tasty and different. I have been on quite the Paloma kick as of late, so I was thinking of ways I could put my own twist on this awesome cocktail. Enter my Blood Orange and Rosemary Paloma. It’s sweet and sour, fresh, easy on the eye and most of all super easy to make! So get your juicer and shaker ready for your next party, because once you make this for your friends, they won’t want to leave! Cheers!
