Hot Holiday Find: DISARONNO wears TRUSSARDI

Hot Holiday Find: DISARONNO wears TRUSSARDI

I never thought to enjoy amaretto too much until I found the new limited edition of Disaronno. This is the world’s most famous Italian liqueur, and I think it’s a perfect fit for the holiday season. DISARONNO has partnered with Italian fashion house TRUSSARDI to launch a limited-edition bottle that’s dressed in the brand’s notable texture and […]

Whiskey Blending with New York Distilling Company!

Whiskey Blending with New York Distilling Company!

I had the absolute pleasure of visiting the New York Distilling Company in Brooklyn a few weeks ago. This distillery is known for producing Dorothy Parker Gin and Ragtime Rye, but they also produce more labels as well. Whiskey tasting, in general, is tough, even for someone as experienced like me. I enjoy whiskey, especially […]

Debunking Sake Myths with Joto!

Debunking Sake Myths with Joto!

This year my whiskey choices were a bit different when pairing my corned beef, cabbage, and potatoes. I spiced things […]
