Tipsy Tuesday - My Faves

Back in the day I used to work in radio promotions and one of the weekly clients we worked with was a club. Every week we did a live broadcast for their infamous $1 Shot Night. It was amazing! My weekly entertainment budget was all of $20 so let me tell you how this helped me not blow it all in one place. Obviously, back then I wasn't drinking for the craftsmanship.

Now, I truly appreciate the men and women who light up with you ask for something special or ask tell them to get creative. Honestly, it baffles me when people work out of coffee shops. I would much rather work from a bar and enjoy a cocktail or two while I plan my success.

So each week I will feature a few of my favorite cocktails and their ingredients and say cheers to the good life!

This week I'll tell you about the St. Rita, French 75, and the Moscow Mule. Cheers!
