Thank you to everyone who came out to hear me “sing” the praises of @cocktailchameleon and celebrate with me at @NeimanMarcus Coral Gables! Ok... I didn’t really sing but rather gave my “Cocktail Conversation” presentation and demonstrated how to make four variations of my Pom Pear Sangria featuring Chateau @Baccarat glassare. I was deeply touched that so many friends and family the came to support me and my new book. Xoxo
The making of: The Fiend of the Fen (in 5 photos, swipe )
1. Start with a Ghillie hunting suit (I don’t hunt but bought one on @amazon)
2 hot glue birds nest, bird eggs, crow, snakes, frogs, bark and moss to Ghillie hood (also from #amazon)
3. Test drive to make sure you can can see... not scary yet!
4. Stipple green, brown, purple, black and white @mehronmakeup body paint all over face & black out the eyes, inspired by @jordanhanz (body paint also from #amazonprime)
5. Stand in corn field and scare the sh*t out of people! (priceless)
Happy Halloween, be safe and don’t let the Fiend get you... #muahaha

HELLO, HELLO, BOSTON!
A fitting first stop on the @neimanmarcus@cocktailchameleon book tour Boston... visiting the gorgeous guardians of the Boston Public Library: The Personification of Science and The Personification of Art. I’ve always said #cocktailchameleon is one part art and one part science (aka mixology) and these learned ladies seem to agree!
