Cinco de Mayo

Standout Style Boutique, May 2018

The Mixologist, Argelia from Vida Mia Cocktails, demonstrated how to make three types of exquisite margaritas — Hibiscus, Spicy Cucumber, and Mezcal. Along with other fellow cocktail enthusiasts, we learned about each recipe and behind-the-bar tips and tricks. Argelia gave us tips on how to shake, stir, and pour drinks like a pro. Plus, Mexican-inspired appetizers were provided to complement each margarita.


Día de los Muertos

Deolores, November 2018

This past weekend, I was invited to a private Día de los Muertos brunch hosted by DeColores Restaurant in Pilsen. El Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead is a Mexican tradition where families honor the lives of their loves ones that have passed. I was excited to participate because in my Peruvian culture, the Day of the Dead is not quite as important a celebration as it is in Mexico.

Following Mexican tradition, the restaurant set up a colorful altar. This specific altar showcased photographs of well-known Latino artists that have passed. Everyone was asked to bring in photographs of deceased loved ones and place it on the altar.

As you probably know, I love pretty cocktails and delicious food so spending my Sunday indulging in Mexican cuisine and craft cocktails was a dream! I enjoyed all the great conversation and especially meeting the lovely ladies from the new podcast Cocktails con Conmadres.
