Let’s all be honest, we are drinking more during quarantine. There is no judgement. This is a challenging time for everyone. We all deserve to explore and try new things this autumn and summer. Let’s get out of our comfort zones and try something new. Try pairing the drinks below with some vibrant music, virtual-tours online, or pairing it with some cultural cuisine, but no matter what, give yourself a travel experience that you deserve.
Enhance your daily life by experiencing the world through cocktails.
There are so many stories of the origin, but one thing that is consistent is Mexico. Margarita’s are the definition of summer vacation.
Originated in Havana, Cuba and a favorite of Hemingway, this simple and fresh cocktail is made for the Caribbean.
Italy: Aperol Spritz
Aperol was created in 1919 but became popular and the Aperol spritz was born in the 1950’s. This aperitif helps stimulate the appetite and is enjoyed throughout Italy.
Ireland: Irish Coffee
There are many theories of the exact location that this cocktail came from. But all stories come from Ireland.
(1) 750ML Bottle of Red Spanish Wine (1) Lemon (1) Orange (1) Peach (1) Apple (1/4) Cup Spanish Brandy (1) Cup Orange Juice (not from concentrate) (1/3) Cup White Sugar (1) Cinnamon Stick
Sangria can be traced back to the 18th century. It gained popularity throughout all of Europe and can be mixed with red or white wine.
This cocktail dates back to World War 1 but got its formal name in 1926 at Harry’s Bar in Paris. “The combination was said to have such a kick that it felt like being shelled with the powerful
French 75mm field gun.”
NYC: Old Fashioned
There is debate whether the old fashion was created in NYC or Louisville dating back to 1880. When most people think of cocktails they think of the classic old fashioned in a NYC bar. But don’t mention that to Kentucky!

People assume that you need a ton of money to experience everything life has to offer. I have made it my mission to prove them wrong. This year alone I have gotten married in Ireland, traveled for months on end, and custom styled a wardrobe all without breaking the bank; for example, how you can take one outfit and wear it three ways or book a flight to another country for under 10 dollars. My creative out-of-the-box approach helps you actually achieve these lifestyle budget tips.
Two years ago, I decided to pack my bag and go on a journey around the world. I have shown how to make money while traveling, a fairytale destination wedding on a dime, and a thirty-day honeymoon in Italy. These were all topics on my most recent segments on Access Hollywood.
The key to a budget lifestyle is that there is not one way to do it all. When I say a budget lifestyle, I am not suggesting to compromise the things you love. I wanted the perfect wedding dress, but it was not in my budget to spend thousands. I went to a sample sale and got my designer dress of my dreams for $25! You just need to take the time to search because the deals are out there.
One of my greatest adventures was one that would change who I am. Brad Goreski, TV personality and celebrity stylist, wanted me to be a part of his team. This brought me to Los Angeles. Brad and I worked as Kate Spade’s brand stylist. We flew around the world working with ad campaigns, store openings, and fashion shows. The TV network Bravo picked us up for our own show, Brad Brad World.
After Brad Brad World, Kate Spade offered me the opportunity to do a solo-travel-blog series for their website. I island hopped throughout Italy, Croatia, and Greece. My goal was to show the beauty of traveling and all the adventures that were out there waiting to be experienced.
My mission has always been to experience as much as possible. I want you to be motivated to get out there and experience it all for yourself. You do not have to be an influencer or have a lot of money. The best things that happen are those when you think outside the box and create your own adventure. There are so many ways that you can obtain your dreams.
I am just beginning my adventures.
