Bachelor in Paradise Girls Night

521A0928

It’s officially been 15 years since the first Bachelor aired, and I’ve been enjoying it as a guilty pleasure ever since. One of my favorite ways to kick off a week is by gathering with girlfriends on a Monday night to see all the shenanigans, “final rose of the nights”, backstabbing, run-and-jump hug greetings, white […]

Charcoal Jalapeño Margarita

Lately I’ve been seeing a new food trend popping up everywhere that brings a moody statement to anything it touches: activated charcoal! After the whole face mask craze, I started seeing it in lemonade at juice shops, ice cream, smoothie bowls, and even bread, turning everything a deep black color. First you’re a little weirded out […]

Serrano Watermelon Margarita

No matter how hard I try to tackle my daily To Do list, there are always at least two or three things that didn’t quite make it to being crossed off.  But how good does it feel when you can actually look at your list at the end of the day and say you did everything […]

Martinis With Pharmacie

I’ve always had a thing for crafted cocktails and have tried my hand at many over the years. But I have so much respect for the true professionals who not only know the classics like the back of their hands but can come up with new concoctions that are geniusly experimental yet extremely palatable.

You know how sometimes you don’t know you need something before it exists, but then it comes into your life and you can’t understand how it wasn’t around before? Hi-Lo Liquor is one of those things. It’s a brand new kind of neighborhood liquor store/market located in Culver City, where you can pop in and stock up […]

Tart Cherry Gin Fizz

A few weeks ago I was having dinner at my friend Jaimi‘s house and she served a delicious cocktail using cherry juice. I love cherries just as much as anyone but never think to use them in a cocktail! This got me thinking, wouldn’t cherry make the perfect accent to gin, and while we’re at […]

Aperol Spritz

Since today is Valentines Day, I feel like it’s only appropriate that I take a walk down memory lane to the last time Ian and I took a romantic vacation just the two of us: Italy 2014. It’s starting to feel like a distant memory, but I still have so many mental pictures that I pull […]

Hot Cocoa Bar

IMG_8127 copy

I grew up in a very hot cocoa driven family. Living in Minnesota, we were constantly looking for ways to stay cozy and warm in the winter and there was nothing like coming in from a cold day to some fresh hot cocoa. I may not live in Minnesota anymore (though this bar was done there), […]

Toasted Pecan Old Fashioned

If you happened to see my snaps or Instagram stories on Saturday night when we were making cocktails with our friends who were visiting from out of town, you got a glimpse of my favorite go-to drink these days. I’ve always been a bourbon gal, and when the holidays are creeping up I get excited for Old […]

Fig Mezcal Margarita

The awkward summer/fall straddle that is September. It’s a difficult time for those of us who just want to wear Vince sweater coats and be able to see our breath on a brisk morning walk. Is that too much to ask? But it’s 80 degrees for like two more months, and we aren’t trying to keep […]
