Hi! I’m Amy Traynor and this is where I share my best kitchen tips and answer common questions about food and cooking.

By day, I’m a recipe developer and content creator specializing in beverages, creative garnishes, exotic produce, and edible flowers. By night, I tinker on my portfolio of websites that includes Moody Mixologist and Dreams Guide.

You can find my cocktail recipes and garnish tutorials over at (or on Instagram or TikTok). My boozy blog was the winner of SAVEUR Magazine’s Best Drinks Blog Award in 2018.

Check out my cocktail books Essential 3-Ingredient Cocktails and The Essential Bar Book for Home Bartenders on Amazon.

Find my smoothie recipes and all things blender related over on!
