How long have you been in LUPEC Denver?

A looooong time.

Why do you love being a LUPEC Denver girl?

The LUPEC Denver gals are diverse and fun- and our events are always a blast!

What’s your favorite cocktail?

The Sidecar is the perfect balance of booze, citrus and flavor. Plus it’s a great way to test a bartender to see if they know their drinks- if you get a glass full of pre-mixed sweet & sour, run away!

What’s you favorite Denver bar?

Steuben’s is the best for their spot on classic cocktails and their new twists on old favorites.

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

Shaker- since sometimes I embody one on the burlesque stage 😉

What’s your favorite garnish?

Homemade brandied cherries in a Manhattan- yum!

What are you reading/watching/listening to?

“Imbibe” by David Wondrich- a fabulous read about the history of the cocktail!

What’s your recipe?

Glassware: Cocktail

  • Splash of Bourbon
  • ½ vodka
  • ¼ oz ruby port
  • ¼ oz Crème de Cassis

To Serve: Rinse a chilled cocktail glass with the bourbon. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
Add the vodka, port and Cassis and shake well. Strain into the prepared glass.
