We’ve been selling lots of products at our temporary “Detox Boston” pop-up shop, which is great, and we’ve been throwing some VIP’s (Very Important Parties), which is even better. If you’ve been a VIP at one of these VIP’s, then you already know all about our very own “Liquid Muse,” Natalie.
Natalie Bovis-Nelson travels the globe in search of the perfect cocktail and the best happy hour (how do I get that job?!?), which is why we went straight to her when we wanted to host our “Sustainable Sips” cocktail classes. The cocktails were all inspired by Method products and concocted using organic juices and liquors, so they’re just as sustainable as they are tasty.
For a Method-inspired, buzzworthy buzz, check out the recipes below...
