How long have you been in LUPEC Denver?

Just a few months.

Why do you love being a LUPEC Denver girl?

I love the girls in the group and the camaraderie! I also love the thought of helping women’s organizations in Denver through drinking!

What’s your favorite cocktail?

Vodka Martini, up and dirty.

What’s you favorite Denver bar?

I would say The Thin Man and Gabor’s.  I do miss The Cricket on the Hill! It was a great place to see live music!

If you could be a piece of barware, what would you be?

Oh honey I would be a shaker, because everyone needs a shakin’ now and then!

What’s your favorite garnish?

A traditional flag (orange with a cherry).

What are you reading/watching/listening to?

The Ting Tings right now, before that I was actually watching an old episode of Soul Train on OnDemand (an old dance show from the 70’s for those of you youngsters who have no idea what I am talking about!)

What’s your recipe?

Red Snapper
Glassware: Old Fashioned
Ingredients:

  • 1 oz Amaretto
  • 1 oz whiskey (Canadian)
  • 2 oz cranberry juice

To serve: Shake ingredients with ice and pour into glass over ice.
About: This is the most contemporary recipe of the Red Snapper.  The original was created in 1934 at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City after prohibition.  It is almost identical to the Bloody Mary but the name was changed to avoid offending the clientele.
