A little bit about the cup….
Started as a journal in 2010 to document ideas and how they were achieved, in 2012 the loving cup became a monthly blog written by bartender Gabriella Mlynarczyk .Gaby has spent over twenty years behind the bar working with Chefs and business owners to create drink lists and programs. Intended to help demystify drink making for the home bartender the aim is to provide you with inspiration , wether its to find basic ideas and products, spend some time tinkering in the kitchen or learn a little about the history and producers of what you put in your glass. Keeping things lighthearted has always been the most successful way to learn, so there’s usually an anecdote or story to read too. Recipes have been featured in the LA Times, Food 52, Cool Hunting, LA Magazine and Fast Co.Design amongst others. In the works is a small collection of liqueurs and mixers as well as some hands on class dates for 2014.
