Join the LIVE Online Cocktail Party TODAY at Sleepover 2.0

I met some really cool people in Chicago when I was out there teaching The Liquid Muse Sustainable Sips(R) eco-friendly cocktail classes. One night, the class was a group of super-hip, forward thinking, environmentally-friendly, tech-savvy bloggers, and the like. Among that group of friends was Amy Guth, who runs all sorts of cool online stuff - among them her own site: Guth A Gogo.

I was honored when Amy & crew asked me to create a signature cocktail for this weekend's Sleepover 2.0. We are going to do a live call and make the drink together over the net - why don't you join us? Here is the recipe so you can be prepared to share in the fun!

This drink is a modern twist on an old classic called the “Dark & Stormy.” The sweet-n-spicy of the Kilo Kai rum plays nicely with the cherry liqueur, lime juice and ginger beer. Rock-on, ladies!

Pour Kilo Kai, maraschino liqueur and lime juice into a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, shake, then strain into either: a chilled martini glass; or an ice filled rocks glass. Top with ginger beer (to taste). Raise a glass to the girls!
