I've met the best people over a drink. A good drink sparks conversation, loosens the tongue. So let's get to know each other over a cocktail.
In a shaker, muddle 2 strawberries with a slice of lime and a spoonful of sugar.
Add 1.5oz of bourbon and an egg white* and shake.
Add ice and shake more.
Like you mean it.
A little more would probably be appropriate.
Double strain into a lovely glass and garnish with a strawberry.
Lovely. To the introductions! I'm Melania, the owner and craftswoman behind Almond Brook Crafts. In this space we'll be talking about everything from the lumber yard where I source most of my wood and my sketch book, where all good ideas form, to my workshop and the products that I craft. And there will be plenty of drinks and food along the way.
It's going to be great!
*If raw egg scares you, you're pregnant or about to be, you can skip this. Your drink won't be nearly as frothy, but you won't be as scared. Fair trade if you're concerned.
