From farm to table, and from grape & grain to glass, the world has been migrating to an evermore natural approach to growing and enjoying food and beverages. We asked some talented local chefs across the country to suggest dishes that celebrate our new luxury liqueur. Whether it be in featured dishes or luxurious desserts, Rivulet is a truly inspirational ingredient in some of the most creative dishes we have seen.

Seared Scallops With Rivulet Orange Rosemary Sauce Recipe®

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 pound scallops, rinsed and dried well with paper towel (dried scallops brown easily)
