Let’s kick off this warm summer weekend with my new favorite patio pounder, the Red Pepper Tequila Spritz. I am obsessed with the subtle red color of this cocktail due to the homemade red bell pepper simple syrup. This recipe is bubbling with garden freshness and a subtle hint of tequila.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I am excited to share my newest favorite tequila-based cocktail, the Mezcal Negroni. Negronis are a classic Italian cocktail that usually consist of gin, Campari and vermouth. I am all for a strong cocktail so I love this story. And I love this take on the classic Negroni. Mezcal offers a smoky note to the bitterness of the Campari. It is truly one of my favorite patio sippers.
Last Saturday I welcomed some of my dearest friends and collectors to celebrate my newly expanded studio space at Ironton Distillery’s Artist Studios. Expect to see a lot of new pictures and in-process moments in this new art studio this summer, as I have a large new project that I am looking forward to starting soon. And let’s just say this: I plan on using every inch of this new studio to make this project come to life.
