NEW YORK (Feb. 26, 2009) – Daytime host and author Rachael Ray is once again combining two of her passions – food and music by announcing the second annual Rose’s Mojito and Rachael Ray’s Feedback: The B-Side party to take place in Austin, Texas during the South By Southwest (SXSW) music conference and festival on March 21, 2009.
The day will feature tons of Austin-inspired recipes created by Rachael herself, signature Mojito cocktails thanks to the title sponsor, Rose’s® Mojito, and performances by The Hold Steady, The New York Dolls, Bob Schneider, The Airborne Toxic Event, Ra Ra Riot, Semi Precious Weapons, The Cringe, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Thermals and John Pringle.
The day party will take place at Maggie Mae’s in the heart of Austin starting at noon and feature recipes such as Ancho Chicken Soft Tacos with Smokey Chipotle and Black Bean Chilaquiles. Guests will be served Rose’s Mojitos with three signature drinks for the event including, Rose's B-Side Mojito, Rose's Austin-jito, and Rose's Lone Star Mojito. All three specialty Rose’s Mojito drinks are infused with natural mint extracts to give that freshly crushed mint, Mojito experience.
