National Garlic Month

Posted: Updated:

Americans are coming together in April to once again celebrate "the stinking rose." You guessed it: National Garlic Month is upon us up in the 954. They're showing much love for the clove, using it in food and in cocktails as well. Check it out.

Not many vampires will be celebrating National Garlic Month, but even the undead might make it to McCoy's Oceanfront at the Pompano Beach Marriott.

Susan Aichele-Sanders: "For the month of April we're gonna be featuring our specialty garlic cocktails, including the garlic-infused Bloody Mary, as well as McCoy's Michelada, also infused with garlic."

The special ingredient doesn't overwhelm the cocktails. It is, however, a big influence taste-wise.

Adding roasted garlic to their Bloody Mary was a win-win for McCoy's.

Susan Aichele-Sanders: "Our Bloody Mary is actually our number one seller on the menu, so it was kinda cool to be able to play up our best seller, and it's just a good mix."

The Michelada uses a Bloody Mary mix as a base. But with roasted and raw garlic, orange juice, Vodka and beer, it's a whole 'nother drink entirely.

Susan Aichele-Sanders: "You haven't lived until you have one of our Bloody Marys infused with garlic or a McCoy's Michelada. Fantastic."

Garlic is no stranger to the dishes served up by Italio in Fort Lauderdale. The joint has come up with two new offerings to commemorate National Garlic Day on April 19.

Zack Gershonov: "We invite guests to choose either a salad bowl or a pasta bowl that we're specially making for this holiday to celebrate it."

The thyme and lemon marinated chicken salad bowl will knock you out.

Zack Gershonov: "It's made with romaine carrots, cucumbers and bruschetta. It's topped with banana peppers, Italo croutons, roasted garlic bits, feta cheese, and it's all tossed in our signature Italio lemon herb dressing."

Pasta lovers, paradise is yours with the first taste of the rosemary and garlic marinated steak pasta bowl, and here's the best part: Since Garlic Day goes down April 19, both dishes are $4.19. That's a pretty good deal.

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.

    The last time I had on a pair of overalls, I was miles from civilization with a whip in my hand, an hysterical co-worker by my side and five angry cowboys staring me down.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.

    Brosnan. Pierce Brosnan. OK, so it doesn't have the same ring to it, but you know who we are talking about. The former Bond guy is back at it in his new movie "The November Man." He's grabbing guns and on the run killing bad guys.
