Craft & Cocktails is a destination for fresh, approachable and original cocktails with a focus on utilizing the beautiful and seasonal ingredients Northern California has to offer. It is also a place to learn best techniques in making  great cocktails at home and where to the get the best drinks when you are out. I knows how to throw a great party, love a good tablescape, and I am always on the search for the best drinks where ever I go. She is the author of Celebrate Rosé, an all rosé cocktail and party book, and the styling and recipe book The Art of The Bar Cart and recipe and entertaining book Celebrate Rosé.

Started by Ashley Rose Conway in 2014, Craft & Cocktails is site and company devoted to the art of making and shaking.  I am always in the pursuit of fun and the perfect drink! I work developing recipes, styling, and photographing cocktails as well as creating stories around libations, celebrations, and entertaining.

My father was a bar owner and cocktail recipe developer, so I grew up around well made drinks and creative cocktails. You can say it’s in my blood! Since moving to the bay area 9 years ago, I have been immersed in the creative and blogging fields that are thriving here. In the past 9 years I have worked crafting & producing shoots for the craft blog Oh Happy Day, assisting with photoshoots, creating cocktail recipes, and working on social content for clients with Apartment 34, as well as managing Makeshift Society including social media, parties and day to day happenings. I currently have a column on Sugar & Cloth & contribute to a variety of online publications.

You can find my cocktails on Williams SonomaSugar & Cloth, Glitter GuideJojotastic, Apartment 34, and Rue Magazine to name a few!

I love to work with liquor & wine companies to really make their brand’s shine whether through cocktail development, styling, photos, or events! Previous clients have included Bota Box, Patrón, St. Germain, California Walnuts, Elijah Craig,and Campari.

Bourbon, vintage glassware, red lipstick, traveling, and craft supplies are my necessities in life. Cheers!
