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 […]

Gone Glamping!

I’ve got camping on the brain. In just a few short hours, this New Yorker will be hitting the road for rural Pennsylvania to commune with nature for an entire weekend. It’s true! We’ll be grilling various things outdoors, sitting around an absurdly large bonfire and sleeping under the stars, like you do. That’s camping, […]

Ooooor, you can just rely […]

They will be sampling a number of their products that range from a limited edition grappa to a smooth, delicate amber-colored rum called Due North, […]

Thanksgiving Countdown: Breuckelen Harvest

Like many of you, I’ll be spending the afternoon road-tripping it up through the wintry mix that is the Catskills this time of year. So today’s post will be brief! The Breuckelen Harvest cocktail is named for its starring spirit, Breuckelen Distilling‘s 77 Wheat Whiskey. This has everything you want in an autumnal cocktail: Hard […]

Thanksgiving Countdown: Ginger Syrup & The Red Hot American Winter

In continuation of our Thanksgiving Countdown, I hereby present this spicy, hot number: Last Saturday, I wanted to have a hot cocktail. I’m a huge fan of boozy, hot apple cider this time of year and Van Brunt Stillhouse Bourbon was a great addition. I also wanted to highlight the spices in the clove-forward Sorel Liqueur. […]
