One of the very best things about this industry are the connections made over time with other wonderful humans. We have so many loyal customers, supportive restaurants, chefs and retailers, and like I’m talking about in this post – talented photographers passionate about craft cocktails!
This recipe was created by our friend and fellow small business owner, Julia McLish, of Barkeep OKC and photographed by Miranda Hodge, also known as The Bevographer. Miranda lives in Oklahoma City and regularly collaborates with Julia. You’ll find our products exclusively at Julia’s shop in OKC. We’re so proud of our network of small business partners and though we are all anxious about the future as we navigate COVID19, we are all looking forward to cheers-ing you and welcoming you into our shops and events as soon as we are safely able.
Until that time comes, please continue shopping small and make these amazing cocktails at home! Some of the best ways to support small business now (besides shopping small with them, of course), include following along on social media. Share their content, refer friends looking for products and leave positive reviews for the businesses you love online! It helps more than most realize.
Cocktails might not solve everything, but they sure are great for socially distant porch sippin’ & sanity savin’. Cheers!
