Cocktail Essentials 1

What motivated you to pursue your passion for writing?

Well, I’ve had two pervious careers. First, as an emergency room nurse, then after 10 to 12 years of that, I decided I needed a change of pace. I had always loved looking at homes, so I decided to sell real estate and became very good at what I did and enjoyed it very much. I had that career for over 35 years, but now writing has become my love and the third career of my life, so to speak.

Vermouth  

You cannot have a proper Manhattan without proper vermouth.  I like Cocchi Vermouth di Torino and Dolin!

Bitters

Bitters makes most things better, and Old Fashions need them. Angostura is a must! Give the AZ Bitter’s Lab bitters (AZBittersLab.com) a try- they are made in Chandler and are great!

 Mezcal

I love Nuestra Soledad & El Jolgorio (ElJolgorioMezcal.com), as well as Del Maguey. Mezcal is a movement…so jump on for the ride!
