THE BRAMBLE

The classic Bramble is considered to be the crown queen of cocktails (and a blackberry lover's dream). It is the perfect combination of fruity & tart - and is sure to be the perfect addition to a chill summer hang.

Want to switch up the vibe? Substitute the lemon juice for Juice Society's Activated Charcoal Lemonade to create a purple hue with the same great taste!

Whiskey 101 Recap

Well, well, well.  Who knew whiskey (whisky, whiskeys, whiskies) could be so much fun?  We always have a blast organizing cocktail workshops, but it was real treat participating as a newbie.

On July 30, She + Him Bartending showed up and showed out for our first workshop at the studio. The dynamic duo walked the whiskey curious through a history lesson on bourbon, scotch and rye, followed by a tasting of each.

Afterwards, we did our best bartender impressions and made a cocktail with each whiskey type using professional bar tools.

Let's just say the weekend was a success.  We had a great time meeting new people, and can't wait to do it all over again.  Stay tuned and thirsty, my friends!

Sip + Brunch Recap

In June, we hosted our first round of Sip + Brunch at Weather Up in East Austin.  It was a hot one, but the drinks most definitely kept us cool on the spacious patio.

The kind bartender and our host, Fidel, was not only talented but incredibly knowledgable. He walked us through three cocktail recipes - the daiquiri, the Manhattan and the margarita.

We all practiced our skills with professional and stylish bar tools. Fidel covered the proper way to shake, stir and pour and everything in between. 

Chef  Kristine Kittrell completed the afternoon with her culinary magic. Bacon bites, cheese plates, chicken and waffles... you name it.  It was quite the treat getting to sample their delectable brunch menu.

As an added bonus, we provided each guest with a swag bag chockfull of local and creative goodies, like custom cocktail recipe cards from Emma Gundlach, Austin Beerworks Pearl Snap, gold paper straws and metal drink stirrers!
