the bourbon pumpkin

November 21, 2016

Thanksgiving is practically here! Can you believe it? Last week I headed down to Austin to throw a Women + Whiskies Party with Noonday Collection. I’m honestly so amazed at the amount of creative women in this world. Each time I host one of these events, I’m blown away at the talent, the entrepreneurial spirit, and the gusto of the women who attend. We gathered Tuesday evening for a cocktail party at South Congress Hotel, and together with my friends Ruthie Lindsey and Jen Pinkston, we hosted a party to celebrate women in Austin, while sipping on our delicious whiskey libations.

the canadian pumpkin- a holiday whiskey cocktail

November 15, 2016

Thanksgiving is coming! It is truthfully my favorite time of year. Eating all the delicious things with all the delicious condiments, lingering way too long at the dinner table and slothfully transitioning into pie-time. The smells, the colors, the change in the air, it’s all so deliciously delightful! And, fall flavors carry this warmth quality that brings comfort to any dish or drink. One of my favorite of all the holiday flavors is pumpkin… Have you ever tried it in a cocktail? It’s magic.

women & whiskies at vivane with how you glow

October 27, 2016

This year, I’ve had so much fun hosting a handful of Women & Whiskies events throughout LA. One of my most cherished things in life is bringing the people I love together in one room to celebrate, to connect, and just to be together. The joy of Women & Whiskies is that they are intent on bringing amazing women together, celebrating the power of women, and empowering women to drink something that is historically considered a man’s drink. My darling friends, Jessie and Tara, from How You Glow, partnered with me to create an epic night of cocktails, conversation, and connection on the beautiful patio at Viviane. We gathered some of our favorite LA women and created an evening to remember.

women & whiskies nashville

June 29, 2016

You guys. I’m not sure how to even express how much fun I had throwing a Women & Whiskies party in Nashville recently. It started with a fun dreamer conversation with my darling soul-friend Ruthie Lindsey. We met in Nashville a little over a year ago and became instant friends. Since then, we’ve been trying to throw some form of dinner/whiskey party, and when Women & Whiskies said they were up for Nashville, we were ecstatic. First of all, Nashville is the perfect whiskey town. Secondly, there is something so magical about bringing amazing and talented women together to celebrate friendship and intentionality, all over really great drinks.

spiced apple and clove whisky cocktail

October 21, 2015

I woke up this morning and it smelled like fall. That is a rarity in LA- and I’m treasuring it. Yesterday I spent the afternoon baking hot-toddy challah with the ladies of Challah Hub- and my entire loft was fragrant with clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Recipes for those challahs are coming your way next week. It’s such an amazing food and smell season with warm and comforting flavors infusing everything around me. I love it.
