I see the red clover, I see the black locust flowers...I see things, and I want to put them into my body. - Colleen O'Bryant


Hey Everybody,

As you may have guessed from the little disclaimer before the intro sequence, this episode involves cocktails and your health.

Now, I may not be chatting with a licensed medical physician, but my guest, Colleen O’Bryant of Wild Roots Apothecary, has a ton of awesome insights on how we can build a healthier relationship with cocktails and alcohol in general.

She’s also an expert herbalist, and this episode is filled with super-fun ways to incorporate herbs into your cocktail creations. Some of the things we cover in our discussion include:

  • Colleen’s journey from office management to spirited herbalist
  • Her fairy cocktail hour
  • The regenerative properties of skunk cabbage, dandelions, and other herbs
  • The arts of scouting and foraging
  • DIY bitters and infused spirits
  • Our favorite herbal liqueurs
  • And much, much more.

I have a feeling that this is going to be one of the most popular episodes of this podcast, so I hope you enjoy my interview with Colleen O’Bryant.
