What makes a better gift than DIY cocktail supplies? This kind of gift is cute, unique, and way more useful than another pair of hand-knit socks. Best of all, it’s surprisingly easy to make the components of one of my favorite cocktails, the Manhattan. Well, all of the components except for the rye whiskey. That one, I’ll leave to the experts.
Lila grew up in Berkeley and is now studying Visual Art at The University of British Columbia in Vancouver. She has an eagerness for adventure which has led her from the top of half-dome in Yosemite National park, to a shower-less one month while sea kayaking around south-east Alaska to sorting almonds in the south of France. These journeys have inspired much of her work as an artist and satisfied her desire to be outside. Lila enjoys working in a variety of mediums such as drawing, photography, sculpture and print. She sells “I love kale” shirts to local Bay Area and Vancouver enthusiasts. Check out more of her work at http://lilavolkas.wix.com/artist.
