Portland Hunt & Alpine Club
Portland Hunt & Alpine’s Andrew Volk

We couldn’t be happier for our friends at Portland Hunt & Alpine Club – they were just named one of the fifty places to drink in 2014 by Find. Eat. Drink. We know we’ll be having our fair share of drinks there this year and we hope you will too.

I discovered the blog, Whiskey Soaked, through a cocktail feature on Design*Sponge last week. A few days ago I made her Lavender Whiskey Sour recipe using Royal Rose’s saffron syrup in lieu of lavender. Delicious!

The Lake District is high on our list of places to see in England, and these photos by Mike Kus only make us want to go there even more.

Browsing blogs last week led me to discover the work of UK-based artist, Barbara Macfarlane. I would love to see some of her map oil paintings in person – they appear to be stunning representations of such vibrant, beloved cities.
