About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!

    Coconut Caipiroska – Ciroc Coconut, a lot of muddled lime, and sugar…shake it up…orgasm.

  2. Jennifer Hernandez says:

    Passion fruit caipirinha!

  3. La Verne says:

    This is an awesome idea! I always wanted to learn these delicious concoctions.

    My fav cocktail is a perfectly made Mai Tai on a hot day, this rum mixed with tropical flavors and makes me think of Caribbean beaches. Perfect for the summer!


  4. CharlesV says:

    Palmetto – like a rum manhattan!

  5. Jason says:

    Horse Neck in a highball glass. Drinking one now.

  6. Sherry says:

    Tom Collins: it’s simply gin and lemonade with seltzer — refreshing on a hot day.

  7. Emily says:

    Whiskey sour. Grandma’s favorite!

  8. 646guy says:

    A cucumber Collins. It’s light and perfect for summer. I remember the jest one I had and how perfectly refreshing it was…a great summer BBQ fave

  9. Anthony says:

    Love a good, spicy Bloody Mary. Bonus: you can drink them at any time of day.

  11. Stephanie says:

    A michelada always hits the spot – so much so, I’ve tried to recreate it in my own kitchen, but to no avail. In my opinion, the Caracas in Williamsburg does it just right: Latin spices, simple syrup, and Pacifico beer. It’s tangy, it’s fizzy, and the zesty kick really lifts spirits.

  12. Chris says:

    Can’t go wrong with an old fashioned.

  13. Eric says:

    Rye old fashioned, no fruit

  14. Hannah says:

    Mai Tai with an umbrella and a plastic monkey 🙂

  15. Allen says:

    Dirty Martini with 3 Olives, classic.

  16. Amy says:

    Dry Gin Martini with extra olives!

  17. vicky says:

    love sipping mojitos in a sunny backyard in the summer!

  18. Lisa says:

    the classic old fashioned!

  19. Danielle says:

    I like a grapefruit margarita!

  20. Brett says:

    Watermelon/Basil Margarita!

  21. Kayla says:

    Silky Johnson @ Nights and Weekends is my current fav!

  22. Jamie says:

    Moscow mule!

  23. Kristin says:

    Bourbon Highball — simple, to the point, perfect.
