Cocktail month is back! For the first episode, we’re joined once again by Sarah Michaelson, a.k.a. Mama Cutsworth. In addition to her DJing career, improv and running a DJ academy, she’s also been  bartending at Forth Bar in the Exchange District. Given our shared love of music, we chose +1 (the First Avenue Beer) by Surly Brewing to enjoy while we chat about cocktails and music and so much more.

Sarah made a gorgeous “Roasty Toasty” cocktail using the Corsaire Brown Ale & bourbon, while Colin created a reverse milkshake IPA using Crafty Radler and some dry-hopped gin.
