Kathy Casey's Sips & Apps

Here in Washington we are lucky to have one of the most vibrant and growing cocktail and culinary scenes in the nation. One person who is creating and taking that scene to the next level is Kathy Casey of Kathy Casey Food Studios and Dish D'Lish. As some of you may know, Kathy Casey was gracious enough to participate in our tasting panel when we were finalizing the recipe for Voyager Gin back in 2008. Her input and the input of other cocktail and culinary experts helped make Voyager a rising star in many local cocktail establishments. She also has recently published a wonderful book called "Sips & Apps" which features classic and contemporary cocktails and appetizers.
We recently had an opportunity to see Kathy in action as she appeared on the "Kelly Moore Show-Moore to Life"
In this episode, Kathy creates a cocktail featuring Voyager Gin called the "Sparkletini." To create the Sparkletini, Kathy infused the Voyager with a small sprig of Douglas fir to create this unique holiday cocktail.
Here's another take on Kathy's Sparkletini:
We would like to thank Kathy for being a friend of Pacific Distillery supporting our Voyager Gin and Pacifque Absinthe. We heartily encourage you to pick up a copy of Sips & Apps to help you with your holiday entertaining.
