Dani. 23. I am constantly curious. I like books, music, film, travelling, tea, nutrition, rain, old hollywood, words, Audrey Hepburn, the ocean, cats, Vogue, rollercoasters, and my friends & family. I am an avid francophile & anglophile. I call Oregon & New England home.

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

“Edith, I know we haven’t always got along, and I doubt things change much in the future, but today I wish you all the luck in the world.”

“Thank you.”

Downton Abbey (TV Series)

First electricity now telephones. Sometimes I feel as if I were living in an H.G. Wells novel.

It was my ambition to create cocktails for all three Crawley sisters (because original cocktails for the whole cast, while admirable, might be a bit daunting). First up is Sybil, the youngest, and my (and maybe your) personal favorite. Sybil is so easy to like…she’s sweet without being saccharine, headstrong, and a bit stubborn. For her, I created a cocktail with delicate, rarefied flavors (St. Germain and champagne) that’s grounded with something a bit more everyman (London dry gin). The end product is sweet, lovely, and stronger than you’d expect.
