Darby Doyle is a typical Utah housewife. But to be clear, the definition only applies if the housewife you imagine home-brews on the regular, wrangles chickens and kids, makes charcuterie from the game meat she just 'brought in', and ends the day with a smokin' cocktail party for a few dozen of her closest friends. Darby's a culinary historian, recovering archeologist, freelance writer, and the delicious mind behind "A Bourbon Gal in Utah" (a blog about cocktails, cookery, and occasional domestic bad-assery written from her busy Holladay kitchen). She also happens to be our in-house gourmand and after-hours mixologist. She's been referred to as "a refreshing paradox of vulgarity and southern charm," and to that we give a wholehearted "hear, hear!" Read any one of her sassy, fact-filled stories and you'll get the message. Insta: darby.doyle | Facebook: ABourbonGal | www.abourbongal.com

Cocktails 101 | Cafe Brulot
4/6/2017 | Darby Doyle
Leave it to New Orleans restaurateurs to invent a drink all about outrageous and potentially dangerous spectacle. Combining caffeine and liquor with citrus and aromatics then set on fire, the Café Brûlot embraces all that’s grand, garish, and glam about The Big Easy. After all, this is the town s...
