Going Gluten Free is a Piece of Cake at Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails

125 (1)

Who’s the keeper of the secret cake recipe in your household? Carrot cake has graced the menu at Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails for 10 years, and it’s gluten free. Becoming nostalgic about carrot cake sends executive chef Derek Dollar back in time to reminiscing Sundays spent baking with his mother. Dollar’s interpretation swaps chickpea and rice flours for wheat flour and adds pineapple for luscious flavor and moistness. Share the recipe? Not happening. Cheer up, carrot cake crowd. There’s plenty to go around at Milton’s and the cake’s always a hit at Milton’s private events such as weddings, showers and birthday parties.

Each Tito’s Mule cocktail ($10) sold packs a double, no, triple punch by quenching thirsts with a blend of Tito’s vodka, fresh squeezed lime and ginger beer AND by sending two donations to No Kid Hungry. Both Southern Proper and Tito’s will donate $1 to No Kid Hungry for each Tito’s Mule purchased at Gypsy Kitchen, The Big Ketch Saltwater Grill, Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails, The Southern Gentleman and Smokebelly BBQ. Harness the power of this intelligent, do-good cocktail choice. Introduce a couple of friends to Tito’s Mules and toast your multi-tasking skills.
