Chic Holiday Entertaining Doesn’t Need to Cost $$$$! #Podcast #video

If you have been following my blog about cocktails, spirits, mixology and sweet treats, Alie Ward and Georgia Hardstark will be familiar faces and names to you. If not, then you can learn now because these are two food and spirit savvy women with interesting approaches not only to those topics but to life in general. (In other words, what you see is what you get).

Georgia Hardstark and Alie Ward

They are phenomenal peeps who look at life and other things way outside that proverbial box. (Thank goodness!) I finally got to “meet” the two lovelies — not in person unfortunately — but on the phone for this video. I was able to talk to them about holiday entertaining … the easy way!

Holiday parties are supposed to be fun, but if planning this type of soiree stresses you out, you are not alone! Cooking Channel Stars and mixology duo, Alie Ward & Georgia Hardstark, have easy and fun party planning tips that will not only make holiday get-togethers more enjoyable events for your guests, but you the host as well.

I talked to them about the following topics:
CREATIVE COCKTAILS: Mostly this is the key topic. Every cocktail is based on Nescafe Dolce Gusto pods!

We had a good time, don’t you think? They are based in LA.. so there is always a potential to meet them!
I love their sense of humor (wry) and wit (whimsical). They remind me of my friends and me.

About The Talent: Alie & Georgia

Alie Ward and Georgia Hardstark are best friends who, after posting their viral video for a cocktail called The McNuggetini,” went on to take the libation world by storm and have since created more palatable beverages for both television and the web. Their web series, “Classy Ladies With Alie & Georgia,” appeared on, and their debut TV show, “Tripping Out With Alie & Georgia,” premiered last year on the Cooking Channel. They write about cocktail trends for KCET, and can also be seen on Cooking Channel’s fourth season of “Unique Sweets,” the #1 show on the network. They are currently working on a new top secret project for their next show!

Thank you to the oh-so-fabulous and fashionable Georgia and Alie!! (thunderous round of applause!)
