    When I’m watching Mad Men and see them having drinks at work, i think about how I was born decades too late. How wonderful that would be if it was still ok to do that lol! LOVE mules. Really, I love anything with whiskey. You styled this so beautifully!!! Curious to know, what lens are you using?

      Right?! Though I’m not sure how productive I’d be if I were to drink these like Don Draper :)

      My go-to lens is a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II! You can find them pretty cheap (about $100). Here it is on Amazon:

    Great design and photography for this post. Was disappointed when I found the rest of your blog wasn’t about craft cocktails!
