Cooking with Wine

January 9, 2014

We love cooking with wine, sometimes we even put it in the food! Red wine glass

Of course we drink it, but wine isn’t just great in a wine glass, it’s great in sauté pans, and saucepans as well!

Here are a few tips to help you use it in your recipes.

Cooking with Wine

The heat removes the alcohol
Or at least it should. Make sure you incorporate the wine early to allow the flavors to become rich and complex without the harshness it offers. The alcohol will dissipate over time. Remember, however, to be mindful of guests who may have cultural or personal reasons for avoiding alcohol altogether.

Must Have Dishes for the Playoffs!

January 3, 2014

Are you ready for football playoffs?

It’s that time of year folks! The 2013 NFL season begins playoffs this weekend! Football and food goes hand in hand and it’s our job to make sure you’re equipped with everything you need! Turn your home into game central by ordering Redstone American Grill dishes to go!

Top Foods for Football Games

  1. Eat fresh seafood like Buffalo Shrimp at Redstone American Grill.Buffalo Shrimp.
    You can’t have football without buffalo sauce! Stock up on some Buffalo Shrimp and you’ll be sure to please your guests! Complete with buffalo sauce and bleu cheese dressing, some people are bigger die-hard fans of our shrimp than they are about their football team. Make sure there’s enough for everybody by ordering a full platter.
  2. Margherita Flatbread.
    Kick it up a notch with our Margherita Flatbread. The basil pesto, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, balsamic vinaigrette and fresh basil will probably distract you from the game but we’re ok with that.
  3. Redstone Burger.
    Our signature burger will treat your taste buds to the flavors of cheddar, applewood smoked bacon and barbecue sauce – what else could you possibly ask for?

Don’t miss a single second of the football fun by ordering Redstone American Grill to go. These dishes will make winning even sweeter and losing a little less devastating. Cheers!

Expect personal service at your private event at Redstone American Grill.

We pride ourselves on great service – it’s our passion. Wonderful feedback was shared about our Oakbrook location that make us love our job even more – if that’s possible! 

My boyfriend and I are always looking for a great place to go for brunch, but since we live in the suburbs, we basically assume we will never be able to find any place we love.  Well, we finally tried Redstone and wow, we were SO IMPRESSED!  We had been once before for dinner, and the food was excellent, so we finally decided to try brunch.

Each person receives a complimentary mimosa. It was not too crowded and the service was excellent. We will definitely be going back for another brunch soon!

If you are looking for a restaurant in Oakbrook to host a party, meeting, sport banquet or shower we would love to help. In addition to our private room, Redstone also has semi-private dining spaces in Oakbrook that are available for parties up to 30 people. For more information, please contact Alex Dalfonso at adalfonso@redstonegrill.com or by phone at (630) 268-0313.

A Classic Cocktail: Whiskey Sour

Whiskey Sour Recipe

signature drink is any unique or original drink that expresses the nature of the person drinking it. 

Signature Drinks often incorporate local ingredients and culture. They can be fashioned or designed to represent a theme or color.

One classic cocktail to try at home is a Whiskey Sour. This signature drink is a classic cocktail made up of whiskey, lemon juice and sugar, shaken and served straight up or over ice.

Sour Mix Recipe

You can buy sour mix – but you can also make your own. First make a heavy simple syrup by heating three parts sugar and 2 parts water in a sauce pan until the sugar is dissolved. Let the simple syrup cool before you use it.  Then mix one part simple syrup with one part lemon juice. You can adjust the ratio to find the sweet/tart mix that you prefer.

Whiskey Sour Recipe

Once you’ve made your own sour mix – add 1 1/2 ounces whiskey and 4 ounces sour mix in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously until mixed and chilled. Strain into a glass straight up or filled with ice. Garnish with half an orange slice and a maraschino cherry.

What’s your favorite signature cocktail?
