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.comEmail Darby
