Take your cocktail up a notch with this unique twist on ale!
I thought it was only fair for those beer lovers out there to give you an option too since I shared that twist on the Sparkling Mimosa. Plus, this Raspberry Ale just so happens to be one of the top favorites of Jordan Catapano, owner of This Girl Walks Into a Bar!
Before we get to the goods, I wanted to share with you a wonderful conversation I had with Jordan about the past year and where her business has grown. I don’t know about you, but with the close of 2015 I like to reflect to see where I’ve grown. I’ll save those words of wisdom for another day and instead give you a look at how the ladies behind This Girl Walks Into a Bar overcame personal struggles to launch their empire this year.
Words of Wisdom from Jordan Catapano, Cocktail Queen~
What are you most proud of when looking back on the year of 2015? We are most proud of pulling off this entire book tour. It required a tremendous amount of planning and never would have happened without our wonderful friends at BevMo! and Pottery Barn. If someone would have told us five years ago that we’d be traveling up and down the West Coast to promote our third book, we would have laughed. It’s exciting to have accomplished this, and it’s equally exciting that it’s over!
