47 year old School Principal Sia from Cold Lake, loves to spend time towards the elderly, Kaley and
ballet. Felt particulary inspired after setting up a journey to Historic Centre of Mexico City and Xochimilco.


I am usually the designated driver at all wedding functions and I’ll admit to feeling very left out at the last one which had custom designed cocktails. Your Mocktail is the perfect way to encourage good behavior from designated drivers. Truth be told, I can’t imagine you guys overlooking anyone!

The Rose of Sharon was refreshing and yummy – just perfect for a special wedding cocktail!


I love that you have included a mocktail recipe… an inclusive element to hosting that is often overlooked. Thanks fellas!


I seem to recall a lot of mention of vodka in your book Josh! I have never tried vodka, but will give this
a try.

this was a fabulous occasion for the Beekman Boys. Surrounded by their friends and local well-wishers- Klaus there as my trusted bar-back and the double rainbows unfolding over the lush green hills. It was a magical day and I shall always remember their kindness towards Klaus (my gnome) and myself.
