Thanks for stopping by

Yes, that’s right, I forced my best friend, Taylor (@TaylorKFlynn), to make our first ever YouTube video! Now, before you watch it – there was a lot of technical difficulties! Making YouTube videos is a lot harder than I thought!! The filming and collaborations were easy, but the editing and uploading, etc was a pain. Unfortunately, due to some technical difficulties, there are not any fun sound effects or crazy pop ups, but let me tell you, the funny parts of this video will have you cracking up!

As part of our collaboration, you can check out all of the recipes on Taylor’s blog –  Hope you enjoy the shenanigans and let us know if you try out some of these cocktails! We had a blast making these! So, here it is – our first ever Youtube Video:
