This creative and elegant winter lunch menu is a treat for the eyes and the tastebuds. Gorgeous in color and made with all of the season’s best ingredients, this toast and soda menu looks like a lot of work, but is quite simple to put together.

The meal’s main offering is a sweet ricotta toast. It features sautéed spiced apples, vanilla bean ricotta and a unique take on gremolata. Then pair the sandwich with a homemade grapefruit soda. This refreshing sipper, which can be enjoyed as is or spiked with your favorite booze,  is sweetened with honey and enhanced with rosemary.
