Monkey Weddings & Summer Sapphires

South Africa to Nova Scotia: Stories, Recipes & Memories

I love the art of a hand-crafted cocktail and the storytelling that so often accompanies it. I try to create cocktails that impart a sense of place. I am particular when choosing my gin, rum, bourbon, or mezcal and favor those I know have been carefully crafted and distilled. Spirits conscious of there own terroir and sense of place. I incorporate many wild seasonal edibles into my mixing and shaking, whether in the form of a syrup, a muddle, a shrub, a steep or simply a garnish. If it's not growing wildly, then it is often growing in my garden.
