Most of the best days of my adult life have included a sip, from graduation day to my wedding day to one day last week. And I’d like to share my enthusiasm for cocktails and spirits as well as some cocktail tips and tricks with you!
The LUSHious Life is just as much for the woman who was baffled by a cocktail list, unsure of what to order and too embarrassed to ask questions as it is for the woman who knows her whiskeys from her whiskys, her single malts from her blends, and her bourbons from her ryes.
Understand, though, that I firmly believe imbibing should be done in the true spirit of hospitality and entertaining. This is not a blog about the most outrageous garnishes, molecular mixology or the cutting edge of boozing.
Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore a complicated cocktail. Inventive infusions, unusual bitters, obscure ingredients, I say bring ’em on… as long as someone else is making them. This blog is all about exploration and education. The LUSHious Life is a space where there are no dumb questions, where we can learn about the basics of building flavor in a glass as well as up our drink mixing game, and yes, where a sista can get—or make—a sophisticated sip.
So pull up a stool and join me in living The LUSHious Life.
Do better, drink better!
