Maleficent has always been my muse. Give me a villainess over a silly princess any day. They have better outfits, lighting, and eyebrows. It’s only appropriate that I give tribute to this dark lady with a potion from the @deathandcompanycocktail book.

Here’s a little drank I made for the Alaskan Invasion 2018, when my Alaskan friends visited Portland recently. It was about 95 degrees and I thought the Alaskans might melt into a little glacier puddle. I made a little fizzle/swizzle/fashizzle to cool them off.

Sometimes you make a little Ugly Duckling of a cocktail. It’s brown. The black pepper rim looks like dirt. Garnishing it would be about as pointless as putting a tiara on a fence post. And yet... it is deluscious. I got some amazing strawberry balsamic from my local sh...

I wanted to kick off 2018 with something unique and kickass. My favorite local wine bar has a bunch of cool snacks. When I saw they had jars of pickled watermelon, I had to try it. I LOVED it so natch it needed to get in a cocktail. This watermelon packs a spicy punch,...

Here's a margarita made with gorgeous Rainier cherries. I always add a little beer to my blended margaritas - it gives them a great buoyancy. Just a little though, otherwise your blender will barf all over you.

You know that game where you can pick any people who have ever existed to comprise your dream dinner party? Frida Kahlo will always be on my list. I've had these bottles for years - my version of The Two Fridas😉 They've come with me through several moves and I've not...

I love the synchronicity of the creative process. Being a huge Art Deco fan, I fell in love with the Gran Centenario tequila bottle immediately. It gives me a Baz Luhrman Gatsby vibe, and I rewatched the scene in the film where Nick first meets Gatsby with the dark blu...
