back to blogging.

after a long hiatus from blogging — but certainly not from cocktails, travel, and food — i’m back. loads of updates coming soon!

if you’re curious about what i’ve been up to for the past year, check out the cocktail book i produced and was the creative director for!

lady leap year.


despite the cold it was another great evening of cocktails at the ferry building, with¬†infusions, foams, and even homemade gummy bears.¬†the first farmers market happy hour of the season featured all female bartenders, as well as women-owned spirits pur and square one. jennifer seidman’s “indian summer” punch, featuring oxley gin and pickled beet juice, was the first drink i tried and my favorite of the night – i just love pickles so much! the bites were all delicious, but being the sucker that i am for meatballs and soup, my standout favorite (i may have had four or five) was claudine’s meatball soup.
