The Gwynnie Bee Spritz

Hey, all you curvaceous ladiez out there! Do you know about Gwynnie Bee? It is a monthly fashion subscription service (think Netflix for designer clothes!) that is dedicated exclusively to women size 10 and above. Pretty brilliant, right? Not surprisingly, they’ve amassed a lot of fans since launching a few years back, and they totally recognize that their members’ community is a major part of […]

Indian Summer Gimlet & Giveaway!

I talk about the weather a lot on this blog. And it really does make sense, because I like to create (and drink) cocktails according to the seasons. 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 […]

The Last Drop of Summer

You guys! Summer is fast coming to a close. Whaaaaa happened?! I barely broke out my bathing suit, my feet hardly touched anything that resembles sand, and I didn’t eat nearly enough grilled meats al fresco. Summer, I hardly knew ye.  Every year, it’s always at this exact time, at the onset of Labor Day […]

The Green Mountain Cooler with Barr Hill Gin

I was recently asked to create a signature cocktail for a very special birthday celebration. Since it was an important milestone for John, they wanted to make it personal. John’s wife, Jenn (also, my former boss and all around bad ass), contacted me about a month before the party. She mentioned that their caterer, Nisa Lee, had already picked out a […]

Backyard Summer Spirits: The Staycation Cocktail

I’m not much of a beer drinker. But occasionally a tall, cold one really hits the spot. There’s usually pizza and organized sports involved. And a summer-induced thirst. Beer just isn’t my go-to unless I’m crazy thirsty. Like, hiking-all-day-in-the-blazing-hot-sun-and-running-out-of-water-halfway-like-a-punk, kind of thirsty. Or sweating-it-out-on-a-steamy-city-beach-in-the-middle-of-July-without-an-umbrella-like-a-dumb-dumb, kind of thirsty. So, I basically chug that first pint down without tasting […]

If you are in the New York City area, make sure to save the date for next Friday night, June 13th for an over the top, outdoor summer spirits event in Brooklyn: Backyard Summer Spirits 2014. My favorite local booze makers and spirits of all time will be participating in this tasting slash block party […]

Bit By a Fox Events!

I had to sample the cocktails, of course! This wasn’t fun at all. This past weekend was the unofficial launch for Bit By a Fox Events! The events ranged from a large corporate party on Park Avenue South with 200+ people Thursday night…  The cocktail menu featured Ginger & Pink Peppercorn Syrups. …to an in-store, […]
