Stir and Strain's Elana Lepkowski has been mixing up drinks out of her home bar for the better part of the last decade. She launched the Stir and Strain site in 2011 where she creates drink recipes, writes and photographs. Elana was a finalist for Saveur's Best Food Blog awards in 2014 and 2015 and her writing, recipes and photography can regularly been seen on Serious Eats and NPR's Dinner Party Download. She has an extensive background in the gourmet and celebrity food industries as veteran creative director of Surfas in Culver City, CA (a 'chef' s paradise' and foodie destination). Gin is her favorite spirit, with Hendrick's and St. George being among a few of her favorite brands.
