Five Daughters Bakery recently opened their new location in Ponce City Market. I’ve been seeing the Instagram post about how delicious they were. Well I finally got to taste for myself!
They are known for their 100 layer donut, their version of a cronut. Yummm!! It takes them 3 days to craft this croissant donut hybrid, but well worth the time. When I took a look at the many delicious choices, the one that was screaming for my to take it home with me was the Lime Meringue. It was so cute with its toasted meringue, dusted with lime zest. Gimme! After paying and have a photo shoot, it was time to taste this 100 layers of deliciousness. Yummmmmm.
That first bite was amazing! The second bite was even more amazing. I loved the lightness of the donut. I loved that the lime custard inside was not too sweet. The meringue on top was perfect! I absolutely loved everything single bite of this donut. Bravo. Five Daughters Bakery.Bravo.

I recently came across the Black Bourbon Society on Facebook and immediately wanted to join the group. With a lack of representation of persons of color in the bourbon community, founder Samara Rivers, decided that needed to change and form the Black Bourbon Society. The goal, to “bring African Americans who want to deepen their appreciation for fine whiskeys and bourbons through events, tasting and more.” With a community of 3,000+ bourbon enthusiast, Rivers organizes several bourbon centered events across the US. Each event features a carefully selected high quality bourbon brand that is available for tasting.
This past weekend, Black Bourbon Society was in Atlanta and was held at the Gypsy Kitchen. The afternoon’s featured bourbon was Woodford Reserve. Guest had the opportunity to taste 3 selections from the Woodford Reserve brand. A delicious spread of appetizers and welcome cocktails started the brunch off in a most delicious way.
(Woodford Reserve Rye, Montenegro, Sweet Vermouth, Cherry, Black Walnut Bitters)
There were beautiful vibes all around as bourbon enthusiasts sipped on curated cocktails and enjoyed an amazing spread prepared by the Gypsy Kitchen. It was the perfect prelude to the main course. On the menu: Scramble Eggs, Bacon, Chicken Sausage, Pan Con Tomate, Cinnamon Roll, Skirt Steak, Shrimp Cocktail, Mixed Greens, and Brunch Potatoes.
The event ended with a few word from Black Bourbon Society founder, Samara Rivers, expressing her deep gratitude to her guests continued support. It was a beautiful moment sealed with a champagne toast with Korbel.
Chicago is the next stop for the Black Bourbon Society, featuring Makers Mark. Click HERE for tickets!
If you’re like me, you can appreciate a very carefully crafted cocktail. If I find a place that does that, expect me to be a return customer. A few months ago, a group of my closest friends and I met up at S.O.S Tiki Bar in downtown Decatur, GA. I had heard many great things about this place and was eager to get in there and see what it was all about. We had the best time! The food, the cocktails and good vibes all played a part in that most awesome night with my friends.
S.O.S Tiki Bar is a very cozy bar, but it has lots of personality. It kind of feels like you’ve traveled somewhere tropical and fun. Expect bartenders wearing shirts with palm trees while serving up tropical cocktail. Some with a bit of fire for that dramatic flair. The cocktail menu is amazing! Trust me, I’ve had all of them. Get there early and enjoy their rotating happy hour punch for only $5 until they run out! So much bang for your buck!
Today was National Mai Tai Day so I grabbed a friend and headed to S.O.S Tiki Bar to have a proper Mai Tai. And boy was it proper! It’s just dreamy…..
National Margarita Day was a delicious success! Five margaritas from five different Atlanta hot spots! I shared this boozy adventure with cocktail blogger and all-around awesome person, Amber of Sippin in the ATL. Check out where we went!
The first stop on this most awesome day was to bartaco. They were certainly bringing the business with the release of 5 new margaritas. Kicking off the campaign, was their chai-chichi-rita. So good! Definitely in my books as a top rated margarita. This one is only available till February 28th. But there are many more to follow! Check their Instagram page for the latest margarita releases! While you’re there order yourself a the secret taco. It’s amazing!!
