La Madrugada Cocktail with Summer Dawn

Summer Dawn is a southern girl turned New Yorker currently residing in the East Village in Manhattan. When she’s not working on her career in fashion, she spends her time wandering her neighborhood. She’s a habitual solo diner at restaurants in Manhattan and because she can only cook toast - she sometimes tries her hand at craft cocktails.
