Team SKORDO first learned about Vena's Fizz House in 2016. We were busy opening our Old Port store and couldn't help but notice the vibrant cocktail and mocktail shop down the street. The combination of vintage glassware, impeccably built ingredients and delicious drinks had us making up any excuse to visit Vena's.
Today, the Vena's Fizz House team is focused on their line of sippers, bitters, infused sugar cubes, and a Maine inspired syrup. You can find their products in specialty food shops or purchase directly on their website. They are also preparing to open a new retail and bar location in Portland with enough space to host events and classes.
Steve, one of Vena's founders, was kind enough to answer our questions and passed along a couple home bar tips and tricks. Enjoy!
Hellooo new SKORDO set - this Middle Eastern compilation may be just the thing to expand your palette!
A brush of Syrian Za’atar on the flatbread, a Baharat marinade on the vegetables, a Dukkah crust on the Halloumi, and an Advieh seasoned broth for the rice. These flavors, combined with the various textures, creates a meal that is begging to be shared with your loved ones. Thankful to have my SKORDO blends to help me travel to different cultures, while still staying pandemic safe in my home kitchen!
