Susan’s Secret: Some bartenders believe that gin bruises easily, which means that if it is shaken, it will change the taste/flavor of it. As a bartender, I suggest stirring, instead of shaking gin. What is your favorite gin drink for the holiday season?

If you’ve been watching your budget all year, there’s no better time than the holidays to think about what you might really want to splurge on. If you’re lucky enough to have some generous friends and family, you can get a taste of luxury in your life without worrying about your own budget!
A nice dinner out. It’s sometimes difficult to stomach a pricey dinner out when you know you could be cooking for yourself at home or spending the money on something more tangible like a new coat or new pair of shoes. However, a dinner out with someone special at a restaurant that really goes above and beyond to make the night feel like an experience can be a great gift to ask for. An added benefit is that if you save it to use a few months down the road, you’ll get to spend a few months looking forward to it, something that’s often pointed to as an important element in causing experiences to bring us more happiness than things.
A cooking class. Cooking classes can be a ton of fun whether you enjoy cooking or not! They’re a great way to meet people and have some drinks while you prepare a decadent meal. You get to pick the kind of dinner you’d like to attend and bring home a recipe at the end of the night too, which means you can recreate the meal at home down the road.
Luggage. Luggage is one of those things that you’ll always need, and it’s worth investing in quality pieces so that you don’t end up having to constantly replace it or even worse, stuck in an airport with a bag that won’t roll or a broken handle. Whether it’s a nice garment bag, duffel or carry-on suitcase, do some research and put a nice piece on your next trip!
