Welcome to Cocktails With Me! I'm Fiona, the mixologist, recipe developer, photographer, and writer behind this blog. I love a good time! The recipes here are inspired by classic cocktail recipes and simple, refreshing recipes that I love! As a 20-something-year-old woman in technology and design, I love to to unwind after work and enjoy the little pleasures of life by having a fun and tasty drink before going out for dinner or while watching Netflix.
After moving to the suburbs in Connecticut outside of New York City, I picked up the hobby of mixing drinks that I could enjoy on my own and with my housemates. It helps us relax, puts us in a good mood, and makes the cooking, baking, chatting, and movie and game nights more fun. In the beginning, I would keep the cocktails simple and mix drinks that I'd tried at restaurants, and eventually, I started using local produce from the farmer's market and grocery shops and became more experimental. Most of my recipes circle around classic cocktails, and some are riffs and variations using seasonal produce and different alcohols.
In 2019, I started my Instagram Cocktails With Me NYC, which featured cocktails from NYC restaurants, but when the 2020 pandemic hit, I transitioned into easy and tasty cocktails made at-home. I have been featured in People Español, NY Mag, and more!
