The Women’s Council of the Dallas Arboretum revealed the signature drink that will be served for an invitation only Meet the Authors reception for Sponsors and Patrons of the 12th Annual “A Writer’s Garden” Literary Symposium and Luncheon A Passion for Gardens. The event is sold out and names are being added to the wait list for $250 and above tickets.

The cocktail named Bishop 75 is a play on the French 75, using OG Cider from Bishop Cider Co. located in the Bishop Arts district. The special cider provides a mellow effervescence and cool, fruit-forward flavor. The addition of rosemary makes for a more robust, autumn-friendly adaption of this classic cocktail.

Special thanks to Edible Dallas & Fort Worth magazine for introducing the Bishop 75 cocktail to Women's Council just in time for this autumn's A Writer's Garden Literary Symposium and Luncheon.

The cocktail will be served at the intimate evening with the symposium speakers which is planned for Tuesday, November 13, 2018 - 6 PM to 8 PM in the Highland Park mansion of acclaimed interior designer Betty Lou Phillips. The party in the beautifully decorated home on St. Johns will be an unforgettable evening for attendees. It was named one of the ten most beautiful homes in Dallas by D Magazine in 2010.

In attendance at the party will be the distinguished authors for the 2018 program:  Carolyne Roehm, internationally recognized style icon and gardener extraordinaire; and Colta Ives, renowned art historian and landscape designer. 

 “A Writer’s Garden” Literary Symposium & Luncheon is the Women’s Council annual Fall Fundraiser.  Proceeds go towards the maintenance and improvement of A Woman’s Garden - a principle garden at the Dallas Arboretum. This year’s event will occur Wednesday, November 14, 2018 from 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM at the Arboretum.

Longtime supporter of the Dallas Arboretum and the Dallas community, Barbara Hunt Crow, is the Honorary Chairman. Michelle Mew is the Event Chair and Linda Spina is the President of the Women’s Council.

Both of the speakers’ current books will be available for purchase and autographing at the Symposium.
