Hi, I’m Liz Locke, and I’d like to thank you for finding your way to Cinema Sips! I got the idea for this blog after finding that almost every time I put on a favorite movie, I wanted to mix a cocktail to enjoy with it. After publishing my first novel Design District and beginning work on my second book, I decided I wanted to have another forum for working on my writing that was a bit more casual and instantaneous. Plus, it’s a pretty great excuse to watch movies and make cocktails.
My background in cinema includes a minor in Film Studies from George Washington University, a fun summer interning at Turner Classic Movies, and more time spent in the Alamo Drafthouse than I’d care to admit. My background in cocktails includes sipping complicated drinks in fancy dark lounges, and using hot summer weather to justify way too many margaritas. Did I mention I live in Austin?
Thanks for following this blog, and be sure to share your thoughts with me about cocktails and cinema!
