Slow Food Cocktails at Forte, Dec. 21

If the prices of local slow food events has been a bit rich for you, or you haven't quite had your fill of wacky holiday cocktails yet, hie yourself over to Forte di Asprinio in West Palm Beach this Sunday for "The Farmer and the Mixologist," an event that promises to put the pea shoots back in your gimlet, where they belong. $25 buys you cocktails and canapes and includes a donation to the Glades to Coast convivium.  Along with pea-shoot gimlets and a blood orange negronis you'll sample canapes like Swank Farms' eggplant caviar, Becker Lane pork ciccioli, tiny calzones made from Elysian Fields farm lamb shoulder, and Red cow parmesan cheese. If you're still hungry afterwards, stay for the five-course slow food tasting menu ($75 with cocktails pairing). The cocktail party starts at 6:30; RSVP by calling 561-833-3330 for reservations.
