Mexico may very well be my favorite country to visit. I look for any excuse to visit and am delighted by the new discoveries I make during each trip. This voyage was at the invitation of our friends at El Tequileno. This brand is based in Tequila, Mexico, the birthplace of the iconic spirit. Unlike other trips to Tequila country, this distillery is located in a more remote, more rural part of the city.  As such, El Tequileno and Casa Salles hotel have created resort-like accommodations for guests. Complete with a gourmet restaurant, craft cocktail bar, full spa and my favorite feature, a ..read more

Served Up Neat
Cocktail Bandits

If one asks for Bourbon “neat”, he or she is expecting their serving of spirit undiluted or mixed with anything else. This preparation permits the guest to enjoy the full flavor of the spirit. One can taste the bitter and the sweet properties. This service allows for an appreciation of harsh aromatics followed by a sweet, floral finish. When discussing necessary yet controversial topics, we prefer to speak directly to the issue as opposed to beating around the bush. When we got approached by Facebook to design a podcast to discuss topics of interest in the food and beverage space, we vowed to ..read more

Vegas is known for its over-the-top entertainment and star-studded performances. Nothing is too big or too exaggerated for Vegas. This city provides the perfect backdrop for the Bar & Restaurant Expo (BRE). In the land of infinite possibilities, BRE permits innovators in the food and beverage space to exchange ideas, review new product designs, and discuss pioneering service methods. Unlike other food and beverage expos, BRE gives equal importance to bar and restaurant operations as it does marketing and customer relations.  We were invited to contribute to three panel discussions.

During Charleston Beer Week, we offer a celebration of community through food and drink, deconstructing historic prejudice and rebuilding critical connections for a new generation. Based on the research and writing that uncovered the historical connections, and divides, of Charleston communities that remain today, the Tek Cyear uh de Root Festival aims to use food, drink, and conversation to better understand today’s inequitable spaces, and how they were originally constructed. With empathy and understanding, we believe that we are all responsible for taking care of that root. Historic celebra ..read more

For our July campaign, we wanted to go with a green theme. Firstly I, (Neka) absolutely loves the color green, but green means so much more to us. Green is Growth. Firstly, the color green reminds us of growth, LIFE, healthiness, abundance, and prosperity. When we see beginner spuds or healthy plants, they are at their most green. Green land that is cultivated, and nurtured properly yields harvests that nourish future generations. There’s nothing like the beginning of spring, the fresh blooms, fresh fruits and veggies, and new leaves on the trees to remind us of the magic, and consistency of t ..read more

After six years as a Cocktail Bandits, our work has taken us to countless conferences, expos and trade shows all over the United States. Most seem to follow a similar structure; rows and rows of 6 x 6 tables draped in brand tablecloths. Your tasting is led by a promo girl who knows less about the product than you. After the sample, you are handed a sticker or button, then on to the next booth; step and repeat. We were in search of a more engaging experience. Upon receipt of our invitation to VinExpo Paris, we were immediately drawn by the enormous amounts of producers, winemakers, distillers ..read more

Last year, before the world took a pause, and we experienced a whole pandemic…. we had the honor and privilege of going to France to learn more about the amazing town and spirit, known as Cognac. It was an unforgettable experience. We took the 4 hour train ride from Paris south to Cognac and it was a beautiful sight indeed, full of countryside homes and land as far as the eye could see. It was a very different vibe from the hustle and bustle of big city France.  Once we arrived at the train station, we were greeted by Amy Pasquet  and she drove us to her home in the countryside of th ..read more
