This simple stew combines all of the ingredients you want to eat more of: beans and hearty kale. The smoked paprika takes these simple ingredients and turns them into a balanced supper that you will return to again and again. There is the option of adding sausage for a heartier version. And I must confess the first time I made this, I turned it into breakfast: started with a can of fire roasted tomatoes, added the stew (about 1 ½ cups) waited until it was simmering and dropped in four eggs. It made a delicious brunch, with crusty toast for dipping and paired with our Apricot Cider.

Cider makes for an excellent cocktail ingredient. It lightens drinks while adding both depth and character. Perfect for highballs, coolers, and even fluted drinks, the cider's diversity as a cocktail mixer makes it one of the most overlooked ingredients behind the bar today. For these recipes I want to stay close to the cocktail tradition but also create drinks that reflected Washington's revival of small-batch distilling. Each recipe is a variation on a classic.
