Whatever is good for the soul, do that.
This past holiday season we spent time documenting our trip to California to visit friends and family. As well as, some of our favorite winemakers, restaurants & bars in San Francisco, Healdsburg, Big Sur & Los Angeles. This week we'll be sharing our west coast wine, cocktail, and restaurant recs! First on the list is this delicious warming sparkling wine & vodka punch! Cheers to a tasteful 2018🍹
