This month like many others we’ve been hibernating, enjoying our first winter in our new home in the Hudson Valley. With the backdrop of the snowy Catskill Mountains, only deer as neighbors, and spending nights cozying up around our woodstove fireplace, it’s been a time of reflection, mindfulness, and rest.

We’ve been conscious of nourishment, rejuvenation, and hydration, but having nature on our doorstep has allowed our creative juices to flow. That and our daily meditations with Alan Watts have kept us balanced. Now, that January is over – thank God, we created a special ‘Cocktail kit’ inspired by the theme of love and appreciation and an ode to our favorite influencer, Alan Watts. After all, we all know the world needs more love, today, right? Well, that’s how we are feeling!

Alan Watts is one of our favorite influencers and was an English philosopher, writer, and speaker known for interpreting and popularizing Indian and Chinese traditions of Buddhist, Taoist, and Hindu philosophy for a Western audience. Every time we listen to one of Alan Watts talks we can't help falling in love with him and his words of wisdom. He plants ideas like seeds in your mind, that grow daily if you nurture them.

So for the month of February (who says it's only one day), we’ve created a special ‘love and appreciation inspired ‘cocktail kit ‘complete with a guided mixology tutorial and some cocktail hack and tips. And... just like Alan says the nature of love is giving things away… so we are giving away a gourmet snack we love ‘spiced curry leaf popcorn to munch on whilst you sip your drinks. In the essence of love were also giving away of one the featured recipes that you’ll find in Our ‘ Love Inspired Cocktail kit. The “Love day’

So why not show how much you care for that special someone, be it your partner, sibling, parent colleague, or even your boss.

We hope to see you soon in one of our classes


Yusef and Nandini Austin.
