The Copy Lab cocktail

for those of you who enjoyed a glass or…three (shhhh!) of our custom cocktail last night, our host cadi storm was kind enough to share the recipe for her delicious creation:

the brainstorm

  • Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver
  • guava reduction
  • pineapple juice
  • orange juice
  • fresh lime juice
  • dry cajun seasoning
  • sea salt
  • cayenne pepper
  • ice

combine cayenne pepper, cajun seasoning, and salt in a bowl. dip rim of glasses in fresh lime juice, press into salt mixture and fill glasses with ice.

in a blender, combine equal parts guava reduction, orange juice, pineapple juice, tequila and a splash of lime juice to taste. pour into glasses and serve.


ps- big thanks to nick ceglia for coming up with a brilliant name for our drink!

launching your copy career

kelley granger

when i swapped an editorial career for one in copy, there were so many things i didn’t know–what does an attractive portfolio look like? how does SEO work? what’s an effective subject line made of? how do i make a “voice?” from simple to complex, the list was diverse and endless.

since i was no longer a student and already out in the working world, i felt like i had no place to pose these questions. having an outlet for answers–for all the things i wanted to know then, and the things i still want to know now–was one of the driving forces behind the creation of The Copy Lab.

each event on our calendar was inspired either by a copy conundrum i’ve faced or questions raised by kim and her students throughout her experiences teaching and writing. (we’re open to any and all topic suggestions, too.) plus, each one has a built-in networking element so you can pump up your contacts and future job opportunities.

we want this to be a forum for discovery, friendship and learning, a place to bring your passion and leave even more excited, with a notebook full of inspiring ideas and the email address of a new connection. meet with us regularly, recognize faces, become friends, make connections, link each other to jobs, inspire better work…the potential is limitless.

i hope you’ll join us in the experiment and come toast creativity and community at our launch party october 3rd!

see you then!
