We spent a day prancing around in these denim aprons we helped design (!!!) with local apron makers, Tippi Clark and Johnny Rosenbloom of Holt McCall. They're actually the *perfect* prancing apron because they go just above the knee and have multiple pockets for storing all of your bar things during the actual prancing. We designed them pretty well, gotta say.

Tippi is a dear friend, and through Holt McCall she turns out some legitimately dope aprons suitable for all sorts of different crafts, meaning you can find one for your painter bae or your chef bae or your two favorite gay little food blogger baes. If you totally love the ones we've got, you're in luck because we're giving away two of them (one each to two winners!) - and then you can prance around and make cocktails, too, and we can all Facetime each other and have the best time EVER.

We decided to name this particular boozy number the "Fall Down" cocktail, because it's full of cool-weather, warm-spice bliss but will also knock you on your perfectly sculpted ass in a heartbeat if you're not careful! Definitely one of those drinks with a limit of two and only to be had when Uber is your driver. 

The baking spice flavor comes from the St. Elizabeth's Allspice Dram and a few drops of a liquefied physical manifestation of our happy place in the form of a gingerbread maple syrup from our magical maple syrup fairy godfather, Casey, up in Brooklyn. The whole situation turns out to be kind of like a very very very autumnal variation of an Old Fashioned, and will warm you up and make you feel all kinds of festive. Alrighty - giveaway details are up top, and as always, let us know if you try this recipe! Talk soon, cuties :) 


The Fall Down
Makes one

  • 1.5 oz bourbon
  • .75 oz creme de cacao
