Mixing it Up with André Darlington | CNC115

Cocktail parties are not just for specialty drinks. It’s about the food as well! Drink, food, and lifestyle writer André Darlington joined me today to talk about his newest book, Bar Menu: 100+ drinking food recipes for cocktail hours at home. We talked about everything from mocktails to treating yourself to a specialty drink, all while staying in the comfort of your own home.


About the Guest:

André Darlington is a drink, food, and lifestyle writer based in Philadelphia and North Carolina. He is a former restaurant critic and award-winning wine and spirits columnist. He recently completed a circumnavigation of the globe to survey the world’s cocktail landscape, a journey he details in his last book, Booze Cruise. In his newest book, Bar Menu: 100+ drinking food recipes for cocktail hours at home, André shows that the cocktail party is back! However, the highly ritualized version from yesteryear has morphed into something far more casual and more adventuresome. The post-World War II cocktail party boom had its own bible, James Beard’s book Hors d’Oeuvre and Canapés, and today hosts and hostesses have BAR MENU, the ultimate guide to boozy eating and entertaining at home.







About the Host:

Following the crumbs in the chaos is a full-time job as a Productivity Coach. As a busy mom of three and the founder of Chaos N’ Cookies, keeping moms from crumbling is my main objective. After gaining 10+ years of experience as a Director of Marketing helping build multiple 6 & 7-figure businesses for other women I’ve created the Chaos Control System to equip moms to overcome their own objections so they can live the life they want to live and start that business they have always wanted. The Family Playbook, or standard operating procedure, is the tool every mama needs to save time and stress-less when chaos ensues at home.

For new biz owners, I also help simplify systems on social media and other business platforms to automate processes to get their business up and running quickly and efficiently with how-tos and hands-on coaching. I have helped hundreds of women to be more productive and self-sufficient in their homes and businesses allowing them to reclaim control of the chaos.
