"Discover who you are and do it on purpose🐝

I am Ava, filled with joy when I mix cocktails, make photos, move my body, and have meaningful conversations.

Oh and I did my first international interview today as a bartender🦋

This is the cocktail I decided to make for Dan Lakin's youtube concept, Around the World in 80 Drinks. It is bright, punchy, delightful... just like us✨

It’s important to know and practice classic/modern classic cocktails often. They will teach you how to understand ingredients and eventually give you the ability to create your own thoughtfully, balanced riffs and original cocktails.

Let’s use every opportunity to create Joy😚

2 oz Blended Scotch Whisky - Monkey Shoulder
¾ oz Fresh Lemon Juice
¾ oz Honey Water - I used a “Tropical Wildflower” honey
¼ oz Fresh Ginger Juice - amount depends on the strength of the root and if you mix it with sugar :)

Medium Shake
Double Strain

I didn’t have fresh ginger, so I used Everclear infused with ginger. Also it was homegrown honey.
