Nancy started making cocktails a long time ago. It started as a fun thing to do with friends, and then became a creative outlet, which led her to start her blog to share recipes in 2010. She wrote a cocktail column for The Kitchn for a short time and started writing for Simply Recipes in 2018.
Favorite cocktail: "People always ask me what my go-to cocktail is and for a long time the answer was 'beer', but now I can actually answer this question and say that my go-to summer cocktail is a margarita, and my go-to winter cocktail is a Brandy Alexander, which I only discovered when I wrote about it for this site. It is an excellent drink."
