True Cubes: So Clear, It Almost Disappears!

True Cubes: So Clear, It Almost Disappears!

As a mixology educator and events host I am always searching for great ice options. Ones that will make my guests say “wow” and also add what I want them to, to my cocktails. I was happy to discover True Cubes, a unique ice mold system that makes the ice so clear, it basically disappears […]

Summer’s Best Canned Beverages!

Summer’s Best Canned Beverages!

Canned beverages are booming! There are so many different canned options which makes life a little more exciting and slightly confusing. With so many options out there it can be hard to decide which ones to get. I have had the pleasure of being able to taste test a bunch of canned cocktails, mocktails, and […]

Father’s Day Finds!

Father’s Day Finds!

If you’re like me, sometimes gifting gets done at the last minute! Don’t get me wrong, I think about the person I am going to gift for months, I just have a habit of mismanaging my shopping time, and wait until the last minute to get a gift most times. Luckily there’s always wine and […]

Whiskey Wall Art!

Whiskey Wall Art!

Whiskey is both a culture and an experience. Whiskey wall arts remind the whiskey aficionado of the pleasant sensation that courses through their being when they swirl a cup of whiskey against their nose. Like Haruki Murakami, the Japanese author and international bestseller said: “Whiskey, like a beautiful woman, demands appreciation. You gaze first, then […]

Beet Cocktails You’ll Want To Brunch With!

Beet Cocktails You’ll Want To Brunch With!

I am always on the hunt for fabulous brunch cocktails! Every Sunday I try to make brunch at home, or go out if I can. When I make it at home, I love to always include a cocktail or two, with some beneficial health ingredients. This not only justifies (somewhat) of my day drinking, but […]

Italian Wines You Need Now!

Italian Wines You Need Now!

This year I have been focusing on a lot of Italian wines. Between virtual tastings, leading virtual seminars, in-person tastings, and more, my weeks always consist of having to taste multiple wines from many different areas of Italy. I absolutely love it, because who doesn’t love Italian wines, right? I decided to compile a few […]

Pineau des Charentes!

Pineau des Charentes!

A few years ago I went to a fabulous dinner that was all about pairing Pineau des Charentes, a French Aperitif with some incredible dishes. This fortified wine is made from grapes and Cognac eau-de-vie. It’s certainly a different style then what many are used to, but sipping on this is just absolute fun! It’s […]

The pandemic certainly isn’t over, but I have noticed more people gathering and enjoying time together again!

Carbonated Tea Cocktails!

Carbonated Tea Cocktails!

I had the pleasure of trying Tea North Carbonated Teas over Labor Day Weekend, and they were amazing! I love tea, especially unsweetened tea. I also love seltzer and carbonated beverages. Combine the two, and you have Tea North! I was wildly impressed with the options, including a Blueberry Tea, Orange Creamsicle, and a Raspberry […]

A Deep Dive Into Sake, with Hakkaisan!

A Deep Dive Into Sake, with Hakkaisan!

I recently attended a deep dive into sake with an incredible sake brand! Hakkaisan was founded in 1922 and is situated at the foot of Mt. Hakkaissan, which means “eight peaks”. The mountain actually has eight peaks and is very famous in Niigata, Japan, where the deep winters create snowfalls reaching over 10 feet! The […]

CANTEEN Vodka Sodas!

CANTEEN Vodka Sodas!

I had the pleasure recently of tasting a new spiked seltzer! As you fans may know, there are over a dozen different spiked vodka soda’s on the market, and it can be a bit daunting to choose one, am I right? Let’s face it, they’re all lower in calorie, and taste like spiked seltzer… which […]
