Settle In With This Mezcal Sipper: The Winter Smoke

Winter is coming. The Winter Solstice technically occurs towards the end of next week, but I’m already there. Even though I live in Southern California now, I’m a baby person who can’t handle any sort of weather even bordering on inclement. The cold has started to creep in and I haven’t been able to shake it. […]

‘Be Mixed’ Cocktail Mixers – Your New Secret Boozy Weapon

Did you make New Year’s resolutions this year? How’s that going for you? Now that we’re full-on into mid January, have you stuck to your guns or chucked those notions of perfection out the window? In the past, I’ve done the ‘Dry January’ thing and I considered doing it again this year, but then I was like…”no”. I’m […]
