Mixology eluded me for a long time. It felt complicated, and I was intimidated by the world of spirits. As I experimented with cocktails – many of which use our line of teas – I felt more comfortable. I realized mixology and cooking were similar pursuits with lots of trial and error. The more I mixed, the more I realized how much fun it is! And I started building my cocktail bar. Check out these Home Cocktail Bar essentials. Perfect for the mixologist in your life.
