Hi, I'm Kathryn Hill. I live in San Francisco, and I'm a Senior Graphic Designer for a software company by day, I blog here and here, I do freelance photography, and I'm known to enjoy a good cocktail in the evenings. Vidiot invited me over to guest blog here.
My first foray into cocktails was snitching a little Johnnie Walker, Beefeater, and Creme de Cacao from my parents' liquor cabinet. I even mixed up a little Creme de Menthe with milk. Eww, what was I thinking? Since then, my tastes have become more refined. I enjoy wine of all kinds, and I particularly love bourbon - either neat, or mixed in a Manhattan, an Old Fashioned, or a Sazerac - and vodka martinis. (Yes, I know, real martinis have gin. I like gin, too.) I adore cognac, and I just experienced my first single malt scotch the other day, so I'll be exploring the liquid gold of the peaty variety in the near future.
Anyway, I'm lying in bed typing this and unwinding after a long day with a Manhattan that I made, with blood orange bitters. Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. Hi.
