Hello everyone!

So, last week we went out to dinner with one of our lovely FriendsAtTheBar, and whilst there we were issued a challenge: come up with an alcoholic version of everyone’s favorite childhood faux-cocktail: The Shirley Temple. Well guess what? We don’t take challenges lightly here at The Woman At The Bar, and so we set off to make this fantasy a reality.

Hi readers. Welcome to Tuesday’s Tools and Tricks. Could you take a seat? There is something we need to get off our chest.

See, everything has been going so great, you’re so smart and we love spending time with you, but there is this thing…and if we let it continue it may cause this whole relationship to crumble to the ground. But look, we are self-actualized enough to realize that we are not blameless in this, so we want to apologize for our carelessness. Hopefully we can work through this and come out stronger on the other end, okay?

What is it that we are talking about? Well, it’s about this word we all keep throwing around. A word you faithful readers are probably pretty familiar with. It’s “cocktail.” The thing is? WE ARE ALL USING IT WRONG!
