I am putting together a cheese board for my mom's birthday. I've picked a triple creme brie, Rogue River Bleu and Dubliner. I intend include my homemade cranberry, rosemary, sea salt bread, sliced apple, honey, amarena cherries, hazelnuts and baguette with the cheeses.
Now, here's where things get a little harder. My mom also requested 60's cocktails for her birthday... Now, I've heard of people pairing Manhattans and brie, but I couldn't find much for bleu or the Dubliner...
I thought, perhaps, a Moscow Mule might go well with the bleu, as I have seen it paired with candied ginger and with vodka... I don't know if the lime might pose a problem, though.
Please note: My mom is very allergic to gin.
