It’s been an action-packed month! To sum it up without writing a novel; I’ve had weekly events, made a few fresh additions to the menu (more on that later), boosted the booze collection, and had my first “hired” bartending gig. The setting for my first event was a 40th birthday celebration – complete with a 1980′s theme to the party (minus the hammer pants/leg warmers wardrobe). I felt it would only be right to accompany the awesome old school jams and 80′s pop culture trivia with cocktails spun to fit the vibe.
Here are some highlights from the evenings menu…
Miracle On Ice
gin. lemon. st. germain. champagne.
rum. dry vermouth. orange curacao. homemade grenadine.
gin. dry vermouth. orange bitters. creme de violette.
It was a fantastic event – I was excited and thankful to be called upon, and the birthday girl herself was gracious enough to give me the following feedback:
“Everyone was raving about your cocktails.” – Heather E.
And now…heads up on some upcoming events featuring The Real McCoy!
I’ll be bartending @ Purple Space for the first ever Ladies Night Tuesday, July 6th (a fitting subtitle might be 6th and The City…) There will be a plenty of pampering for the ladies, massages, jewelry blah blah blah…And cocktails!

I’m also absolutely ecstatic to say I’ll be guest bartending for The Temple Bar Saturday, July 17th. Details soon…
