A Friendsgiving Cocktail! The Green Pear Sparkler

The Thanksgiving countdown is underway! T-minus seven days until the turkey frenzy takes over America’s kitchens and tummys and couches and zzzzz. I cannot WAIT to be a lazy mofo for three days straight! Who’s with me?! (super lethargic virtual high-five) Maybe you’ve sorted out your main menu. Maybe you’re gonna wing it like an […]

A Halloween Cocktail! The QUInutButter Cup with QUI Tequila

I love this time of year: crisp, clear, sunshine-y days, the fiery yellow and gold leaves underfoot, and, because…HALLOWEEN(!), we can finally allow ourselves to indulge in obscene amounts of candy. Peanut butter cups have always been one of my all-time favorites. When you’re a kid and you hit a house with full size peanut […]

Chipotle Cherry Bourbon Smash

The ‘Smash’ is in effect a Julep on a small plan.” – Harry Craddock, The Savoy Cocktail Book, 1930 What is a smash? It sounds fun! According to cocktail lore, it is essentially a julep. Sooo…spirit, sugar, water, mint and ice. A smash usually uses fresh, seasonal fruit. Muddled or…smashed, as it were! Some smashes have other herbs […]

Indian Summer Gimlet & Giveaway!

So, I’m not just rambling on about nonsense, people. But also, I’m a New Yorker…and that’s what we do. We live in a place of extremes. We’re constantly […]

Fall In The Catskills & The Phoenicia Flea

Check out our spectacular fall weekend in the Catskills last week! Could that montage be any more autumnal?! Can’t you just smell the wood smoke in your scarf, hear the crunchy leaves underfoot and taste the hot, spiced apple cider and whiskey cocktails I was concocting?? If you weren’t transported by that explosion of earth tones […]

The Bonfire Brew

As I mentioned on Saturday, I was on my way to a camping weekend extravaganza in beautiful rural Pennsylvania… It did not disappoint. The weather was beyond beautiful. The camp was packed with a fabulous mix of folks as usual. We even had our own hashtag. Nailed to a tree. Yep, we were in nature but we were […]
