Pisco & Punch & Pina Colada, Oh My! It’s the holidays so bring on all the good stuff including punches with flair. Y’all know that I absolutely love punches because they are so easy and my #1 entertaining tip! 🍍🎄🍍 .
Also, can we all agree that dumping a bunch of bottles into a bowl is the easiest part of the holidays? Lol Well I always make super easy punches then elevated it with beautiful seasonal garnishes. Using the @masterofmixes_ Pina Colada Mixer I took my holiday punch from drab to fab then added Pisco and cinnamon sprinkles plus garnishes. Instead of spending time making individual drinks I was able to make one punch and enjoy the night. Master of Mixes gives you the inspiration, ingredients and tricks you need to take your at-home cocktail to the next level.

Went to #losangeles with 1 suitcase, came home with 2. I️ stashed a duffel in my suitcase so that I️ could bring back as much loot as I️ wanted, including 5 pounds of persimmons, Asian pears & plums from the farmers market, the most amazing Greek style sheep milk yogurt, creamy, dreamy @malkorganics Almond milk, and a bottle of @amaroangeleno which I’ve been wanting to get my hands on for ages!! I️ used to think that Amaro Montenegro was the gold standard for sipping amaros, and while it will always hold a special place in my amaro collection, one taste of Angelino and I️ was totally hooked. Swipe 👈 to see just how fast this bottle went from the store to my mouth! If you’re reading this thinking, “what the crap is an amaro?” It’s an Italian aperitif/digestif made with herbs, flowers and spices that both awakens your palate and aids in digestion. There are hundreds of different amaros in Italy, and they taste amazing either straight up or as part of a cocktail...proof yet again that Italians are pure geniuses. But so are the folks @amaroangeleno 😍 #amaro#italy#cocktails#imbibe#aperitivo#digestif#italian#amaroweek @amaroweek #california#farmfresh#farmersmarket#persimmon#fall#fallproduce#sheepmilk#almondmilk#travel#travelgram#chef#cheflife#mostlyhealthychef
Everything about Patrick Bouju’s °Festejar!° from Auvergne exemplifies celebration and revelry. The sparkling rosé (mostly Gamay d’Auvergne) pet-nat party is like off-dry Early Glow strawberry soda finished with a spritz of raspberry shrub - fresh with lively acidity. Don’t bother with the small, cutesy antique glassware - you’re just gonna be spending more time refilling your friends’ glasses. 🍓🍾
Had a great time at @bryanerik 's Christmas party making cocktails from the @shakerandspoon That's Amaro box. 1. Last Chance Nance 2. Slippery Slopes by @creativedrunk 3. Vino Labbra
Back in the swing of things with @sevenstills Dogpatch Cask Strength Whiskey. Distilled from @almanacbeer Dogpatch Sour and finished in Grand Cru barrels. Bottled at a spicy 59.5% and full of grain, dry white wine, cracked leather, and apple juice. Quite a mix of flavors as is typical from the odd offerings Seven Stills comes up with.
Confession: I spent ages looking at super intricate strawberry roses online and then decided to wing it and this happened! Pretty stoked with how it came out. Perfect topping for this refreshing Christmas bevvy 🎄🍸🎅 #clinkclinkchristmas .
STRAWBERRY GIN SMASH
◾60 ml London dry gin 💧
◾10 ml simple syrup (1:1) 🍬
◾3 strawberries, sliced 🍓
◾1 lime slice 🍋
◾Soda to top ☝️
◾Strawberry rose and mint sprig to garnish 🌹
Add the gin, sugar syrup and a few of the strawberry slices to the bottom of a collins glass and muddle lightly. Fill the rest of the glass with alternating layers of ice and the remaining strawberry slices. Drop in the lime slice after giving it a quick squeeze and top with soda. Give it a stir and garnish with the strawberry rose and a sprig of mint.
It excites me when I grab photos like this. If you told me two years ago that taking a photo would have brought me so much joy, I probably would have laughed at you. I spent a lot of today staring at a popcorn ceiling from my back in my bedroom contemplating where I'm at in life, and the things that make me happy. I've always tried to be one who thinks days, months, and sometimes even years ahead... and after today, I'm not sure that's the best approach. Trying to find that balance in life to keep myself driven, and goal oriented, but also to slow down and enjoy the moment has been extremely difficult. What I have learned is that you shouldn't be afraid to do those things that make you happy, regardless of what they are. You spend a short time on this planet, and my biggest fear is to look back and say that I was afraid to pursue or partake in activities that truly brought joy to my life. #caseofthemondays#foodforthought

Simple and balanced, the Negroni is considered as one of the most famous Italian cocktails in the world. * * * *
Legend tells that Count Camillo Negroni asked his friend, bartender Fosco Scarselli, to strengthen his favourite cocktail – the Americano – by replacing the soda water with gin. Scarselli added an orange garnish, rather than the lemon you’d usually get with an Americano, and the Negroni was born. * * * *
Today is not only a complex drink but the quintessential elixir of all things Italian.

Good evening whiskey fans. Tonight we've got a special treat from the whiskey cowgirl's 2017 holiday picks. The Sons Of Erin from restless spirits.

Stop by the shop for even more recommendations from the whiskey cowgirl. #TheWhiskeySnug
It was an honor and a pleasure to serve cocktails at Chef @MikeSolomonov's cooking class at @DegustibusNYC Cooking School at Macy's last week! Solomonov is the James Beard Foundation award-winning chef behind @FederalDonuts, @ZahavRestaurant, and @AbeFisher_Philly. #GinLane1751
I've been a fan of @sjberto's mixology for some time, so was excited to meet him and try a few of the creations from his forthcoming winter menu @georgesatthecove, inspired by the neighbourhoods of San Diego. Now I try not to speak in superlatives but holy crap, his milk punch was one of the best things I ever drank!
The University Heights: mezcal, Singani 63, absinthe, Batavia arrack, Campari, spices, lemon, orange blossom oolong tea and Froot Loops-infused milk clarification. Also the La Jolla: mango, lime, dried chilli infused tequila blanco, agave and saline ice cube. Thanks again for your warm hospitality Stephen!
FUN FACT: I got into cocktails because I couldn't drink beer in college (I was gluten-free 10 years before it was trendy). I've come a long way since those G&T days.
