Easy Tips for Styling a Bar Cart with Miss Kris

Friday, April 22, 2016 0 No tags 0


I recently collaborated with my girl Kristen Turner aka Miss Kris to get the low down on bar cart styling 101. She’s a master at the bart cart DIY and you know I’m the master at…drinking things. So, we’re a perfect match. I brought some things from my home bar and ktichen, she brought the cart, and then I let her do her thang. I loved the result.

This is us looking very satisfied with our bar cart situation:

Whitney Wine Crawl: Spritz

Wednesday, March 30, 2016 1 No tags 0


Hello friends! I’m so excited to be hosting the next Whitney Wine Crawl with the authors of  Spritz, Talia Baiocchi and Leslie Pariseau. So, naturally, this crawl is going to be all about the spritz – that perfectly bitter and refreshing cocktail and star of Italian aperitivo hour (or really any time of day or night). We’ll start at Cliff’s Edge in Silver Lake with a cocktail and then head to Commissary at The Line Hotel in Koreatown for some more spritz-y fun. We’ll end the night by heading a little further west to the always delicious Sotto for another spritz and aperitivo-appropriate bites.

We’ll be crawling with you, talking about the history of the spritz, explaining what we’re drinking, giving you spontaneous quizzes (with amazing cocktail swag prizes from W&P Design in Brooklyn), and hanging out! Everyone will also be leaving with a signed copy of the book. Bonus!

Could this BE any cooler? Now there are no excuses to drink crap on airplanes. These kits, a collab between W&P Design and PUNCH, come with everything you need to make two cocktails, except the booze (so they are TSA friendly!).

In addition to Moscow Mule, they also have Gin + Tonic, Old Fashioned, and a Champagne Cocktail. Pick your poison! Or get them all, like me. Watch the video below to see me on my pretend flight to Cuba (dying to go) mixing up one of the Champagne Cocktails.
