What an amazing experience working with Patron for the launch of their new Roca line of 100% Tahona expressions. I was so very fortunate to have the pleasure of presenting a creation of my own as one of Patron's featured mixologists on behalf of the 60 Hands Alliance. The “Roca Como Flor" is a cocktail utilizing the stunning Roca Patron Silver. From that starting point, I then went on to create a Hibiscus, Black, and Green tea syrup. When combined with fresh grapefruit juice and topped with soda the effect is effervescent, light, yet, rich in flavor and complexity. To finish with notes of cooked agave really reinforce the amazing mixability of the Roca Patron Silver expression. Then again, the 90 Proof might have something to do with it :)

A big thank you to Patron SpiritsMBooth, and Gesi Schilling for the stunning photos!

Soooo, I got this and a colon #tattooed on my #triceps as a part of my #typography project. Years later it’s really nice to see that its meaning surpasses its initial intention. #semicolon #suicideawareness #tattoo #Tattoos #wordsonskin #april16 #416 #hipster #jaren #miami

All the good things take time

All the great things take effort.

It’s really a trip

How your words synchronize with the goosebumps on my neck.

No, what kills me is that they don’t even try to get it: they don’t understand it and actively deny empathy. That’s fine; it really is. I represent something unique that these individuals couldn’t possibly relate to. And, instead of seeing the possibility, they see something obtuse. It’s a shame. You know what: I don’t feel mad or angry… I just feel like it’s a misguided shame.
The things I say to people when referrals go bad.
I am terribly frightened

By the fact that I may be falling.

Maybe it’s not a question of whether I deserve it or not

Maybe it’s a question of whether I can endure it or not.

My home #ice is better than your average #bar ice. Because I’m a bar #snob. And an ice snob. And a #whiskey snob. #michters #bourbon #american #oak #tumbler #homemade #mixology #mixologist #icequeen #bartender #jaren #hipster #miami

How the most insignificant of things have the ability to tie me up in knots
