Art Making: DIY Disco Dabbing

Add some 70’s bling to your living room dance party with found household sparkle for a DIY Disco Ball. We suggest aluminum foil or upcycling your old, unused CD’s to create a reflective surface.  

Cut your aluminum foil or CDs into small pieces (pro tip – soaking CD’s in a bucket of hot water makes them easier to cut!). Glue your reflective pieces onto a found spherical surface.  

Try: Styrofoam ball, hard childhood rubber ball or an item of ANY shape or size to transform it into a dazzling dance party prop!

Signature Cocktail: Whiskey Twist + Shout

  • Time: 3 minutes . Yield 1 cocktail.
  • 3 to 4 sprigs of spearmint 
  • ¼ lemon (cut up into 2 or 3 pieces) 
  • 1 ounce simple syrup 
  • 2 ounces bourbon whiskey 
  • Ice (to fill) 

Gather the ingredients. Add the mint and lemon together in a mixing glass. Muddle thoroughly to reduce the juices and oils. Add the simple syrup, whiskey, and fill the glass with ice. Shake for 30 seconds. Pour into a glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a mint sprig or a lemon twist, if you’re feeling fancy! Serve and enjoy!
