Vol. 7, No. 5 | Give the Spring Some
Whew! Well this was quite the hiatus. But it’s Spring now and with the warmer weather, I’m finally back in a groove. Here’s (a small bit) of what I’ve been up to:
I drafted a whole newsletter on why introverts make good brand ambassadors, but it didn’t quite feel complete so I never posted it. That’s actually when I stopped writing. I couldn’t move past that newsletter. It took me a few weeks to realize I could just delete it and move on to something else.
Even though I didn’t write my newsletter. I did write a piece for Atlanta Magazine. It just came out in the April issue. I’m going to keep screaming about how amazing Atlanta creatives are, especially bartenders.
I also did an interview with Thrillist on Noilly Prat. I’ve been loving Noilly. I’ve had a quiet love affair with vermouth since I went to Barcelona in 2019. It’s so underrated and I’m so glad that in addition to St~Germain, I get to represent Noilly Prat as well.
The famed cocktail bar Death + Co has plans on opening a location in Atlanta soon. I’m a big Death + Co fan and I’m super excited about this. When I found out about it, in the back of my mind I couldn’t help but think: Hmm, are people going to act like that’s the start of cocktails and talent in Atlanta. They better not.
I didn’t write anything about Jamaica. That’s how long it’s been. The trip was amazing as always, but it went by so quickly. The thing that sticks with me though is Scotley’s fried chicken. There are going to be a lot of doubters, but Jamaicans make the best fried chicken ever. I can feel the skepticism, but it’s true.
I clearly don’t recommend eating tons of fried chicken. Healthwise, it isn’t great. I did however, come across an article the other day on jerk seasoning being anti-inflammatory.
Ok, that’s it for now. I’ll see you guys next week. I hope you’re all well!
P.S. - I think a big part of the problem with sending this newsletter is that Wednesdays just became impossible so that’s why this is coming out on a Friday.
