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

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.
