1. Be a Better…Bartender/Giver.

    I am very excited to announce that the non-profit I support and donate my time to, Alegria, is hosting their annual Benefit of Hope this Monday. We’ve put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this event and we hope that you all can make it to Soho that night for a good cause and of course, some cocktails and yums!

    ALEGRIA inspires and empowers the most underserved youth and their communities to achieve their potential and transform their lives through the arts.

    Pretty great huh? Yep, I wish I would’ve met these people when I was little…I would’ve had a book deal by now with their encouragement, but alas, here I sit writing a tumblr blog. sigh.

    Anyway, wanna come to the party and support a good cause on your Monday night? Get your tickets HERE.

    You can also watch our documentary HERE. (It’s awesome, and not just because I’m in it)

    The first orphanage we supported is located right outside of Lima, Peru and after working for a week at the community, we treated ourselves to a little Peruvian culture…meaning cocktails. 

    Our favorite? Pisco sours. 

    Let’s celebrate Alegria, friday, and partyin’ partyin’ with a cocktail shall we?


    1½ oz Pisco
    1 oz Simple Syrup
    1 oz Lemon / Lime Juice
    ½ Egg White (1 tsp powder)
    Dash Angostura Bitters

    Add all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake that baby until the drink becomes frothy. Strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice.

    See you Monday and happy weekend!
