July 2016

Friends of RARE,

We hope you are enjoying the summer sun thus far, and invite you to spend some of that time with us on our lovely patio in Old Town! We added several new cocktails to the drink menu – all delightfully refreshing – including The FoCo Fresco – a tribute to Fort Collins as the perfect patio drink for those hot summer days. This tasty beverage includes Monopolowa gin, cucumber juice, Cointreau, lemon juice and soda, with some of our house-grown mint.

The Sage Farrotto dish features a spiced carrot purée with fried chickpeas, broccoli rapini, citrus glaze, and tomato oil. If you’re a fan of Risotto, you’re sure to enjoy the Sage Farrotto dish as farro is a very similar grain. A pearled form of wheat with roots in Italy, farro is chewier than rice, giving a heartier texture than a typical risotto.

Lastly, we wanted to send a huge ‘thank you’ to all our friends who joined us for our cheese demos in June! It was a great success – we love sharing our passion for quality food with our fans!  Mark your calendar for Thursday, July 21st as we have our first Pizza Making Demo!  Learn tips on how to make a delicious pizza – with fun dough toss tricks included.  Visit our Facebook page for more information.

In addition to fun seasonal cocktails, the Summer Menu is in full swing, featuring some new appetizer options, like Arancini, as well as a new vegetarian entrée, Sage Farrotto. Arancini is crispy fried tomato risotto balls with basil aioli. It is an excellent way to start your evening with a great drink and to share with a couple friends.

We look forward to seeing you at Old Town’s best happy hour – and basking in the sun on our fantastic patio this summer!

Grazie Mille

The RARE team
