Spirited Away is a recipe-based cocktail blog dedicated to introducing curious at- home bartenders to the world of mixology in a friendly, non-intimidating way.

143Hey there– I am Hilary, Spirited Away‘s author, recipe-creator, and resident taste-tester (although this last position is typically shared with my lucky partner in crime, K). I created Spirited Away after being approached by many friends with the request: teach me about cocktailsSpirited Away features original recipes, explanations of basic bartending skills (i.e. why is the Boston shaker such a big deal?), instructions on how to make classic drinks, lessons on popular spirits and liqueurs (plus their cheaper alternatives!), and much more.

If you have any questions, comments, or requests for future articles, email me at spiritedawaycocktails(at)gmail(dot)com. Also, check us out on Twitter at @SpiritedAwayMA.

Best, H
