#FridayVibes – As Requested, Here Be Dragons!


For the second week in a row I was able to connect with friends and followers live on Facebook and Instagram, and once again I came away with a tremendous sense of elation at being able to connect with everyone. Thank you to everyone who made with with a drink in hand, tequila or otherwise!

We had a few requests to re-post Komodo dragons from my January trip to Indonesia and Komodo Island. A special thank-you to Bill for helping me create a contraption to get my camera down low to shoot them without being eaten! Ask and you shall receive. . .

If you missed last night’s episode of Tequila Time with Art, watch it here as well – and give me a follow on Facebook and Instagram, where you can catch past and eventually future episodes!

Tequila Time with Art – Live @ 5:30 PST – Recipe included!

Looking forward to another live Tequila Time this evening and I’d love to see you there if you can make it! We’ll be on Facebook Live and Instagram. If you’re planning on playing along at home, here’s a recipe I loosely follow:

1 1/2 oz of your favorite Blanco Tequila
1/2 oz Cointreau
1/2 oz Agave Nectar
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
Crushed Ice

Finish with a splash of tangerine or orange juice – perfect as the days get sunnier and warmer! For those of you who don’t imbibe or aren’t of age, here’s a mocktail recipe you can use – no alcohol, but lots of love an fresh ingredients!

2 oz honey or agave
1 oz limeade concentrate
1 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz fresh grapefruit juice
2 drops almond extract
1/4 tsp orange extract or bitters
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
Crushed Ice

In either case, it’s not a tequila cocktail or a mocktail without limes to garnish!

See you at 5:30 on Instagram or Facebook!

#FridayVibes – Tequila Time with Art, Episode 1!

I had a great time going LIVE last night with my good friend Parimal Deshpande for the inaugural episode of Tequila Time with Art! This one was a little on the formal side while I adjust to the format, but I hope everyone who tuned in and participated felt like it was time well spent. I’m looking forward to doing these weekly and I hope you’ll continue to tune in and tell your friends!

Obviously we won’t be able to answer everyone’s questions during the broadcast, but rest assured we have culled inquiries and If I can find some time, I’ll answer some here on the blog in the weeks and months to come.

If you missed out on the live broadcast, they will be available every week on my  youtube channel, facebook, and instagram – get connected!
