Chappy Hour: The Super Moon Cocktail + This is the Moon's Work

January 15, 2019

Diana Hayes' This is the Moon's Work (Mother Tongue Publishing) is a collection of both new and out of print works that will take you on an out-of-this-world journey, through our wild and natural world and into the far reaches of the human psyche. Our ALU resident mixologist Tan pairs a delightfully foamy cocktail with a poem  from the collection called "Indigo Bite of Water" in this edition of Chappy Hour.

Bask in the light of the moon and these celestially inspired poems while you sip on a rich, creamy Super Moon cocktail.
