Jo was born and raised in Chicago and happily lived the majority of her life in the Windy City. In 2015, she and her (now) husband decided it was time for a change. They headed to Austin, TX where the pair currently live in a 800 square foot home with dog, Nora, and three cats. Jo manages a modern furniture showroom and hubby Taner is a mailman (yes, really). Nothing makes them happier than a road trip or motorcycle ride.
Amaretto Sour Recipe:

Pour the Amaretto, simple syrup, and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a glass filled with ice. Garnish with an orange slice and a cherry!
Best drink spot?
We’ve been loving Kind go Tropical at the moment (their curly fries are the best addition to any cocktail).
Top trend of the moment?
Barrets. I hope they’re here to stay.
Favorite travel destination?
Any national park!
Hidden gem in your city?
Hotel San Jose. It’s not very hidden… but it’s a gem and my favorite place to spend any special occasion.
Thanks Jo! Can't wait to sip these sours and shop for more jewels!
