Melinda Hannigan Artist Reception – Nov. 4




You are invited to the Artist’s Reception at TASTE on Nov. 4 from 5 to 6 p.m. Bites from TASTE and the artist inspired cocktail, Mariner’s Revenge, will be served. Please RSVP as space is limited:

Here’s a little bit more about our quarterly artist program and Melinda Hannigan: SAM Gallery at TASTE Restaurant is pleased to present new paintings by artist, Melinda Hannigan/Entropy (FeO), from September 15 to December 13, 2009. 

In this series of paintings, Melinda Hannigan focuses on the working side of the maritime world, a world she has known all her life. As Hannigan says, “Enormous, rusting, battered and bashed steel hulls travel the world.  Each storm, each port, each docking, leaves inscriptions of voyages past on the ship’s skin. There is no stopping the ravages of the maritime environment, but these vessels take on an uncommon beauty as they age.” 

Melinda Hannigan’s states that “. . . the inspiration for my paintings comes from the working side of the maritime world—the colors and textures of tankers, containerships and rusty old bulk carriers.” TASTE Bartender Tiffany Friday took this message and the images of Melinda Hannigan’s work as the starting point to create a cocktail that reflects this maritime inspiration.

Mariner’s Revenge


1 ounce tart cherry infused Bacardi Rum

1/2 ounce Luxardo Marischino liquor

3 ounces fresh orange juice

1/2 ounce Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum

Fill 10 ounce tumbler with ice. Add ingredients in order. Float Sailor Jerry’s Spiced Rum across the back of a spoon. Garnish with a fresh pitted cherry.

Tart-Cherry Infused Light Rum
