After a long incubation process, Donna Moodie is proud to announce that Miss Marjorie’s Steel Drum Plantains have landed on the shelves of many treasured small grocers.  Marjorie’s very treasured appetizer, a staple on the menu for over a decade, is now packaged for retail.

The perfect snack, pairing well with cheeses and dips as well as being a solo success, Miss Marjorie’s Steel Drum Plantains are poised to gain a cult following.

Nutrient rich, gluten free, vegan and delicious!

The one problem…You may not be able to stop eating them!

Ever wondered how new cocktails are created?  One of Marjorie’s newest cocktails, 10 Degrees, was created spontaneously one evening at the Marjorie bar.  Intent on using Oola’s Cask Aged Gin and Sidetrack’s new Lemon Verbena Liqueur, the main ingredients were established, but there was just a little something missing.

KT, owner of the 10 degrees, an unusual and intimate venue on 14th and Union, suggested using Zirbenz Stone Pine Liqueur.  Who knew? It gave the drink the perfect balance.

What better way to show gratitude for the contribution than to name the drink with a nod to our neighbor, and proprietress of a great space, 10 degrees.  Perhaps your next event will be there!
