Pompette is a newsletter that's curated to help you
live through your senses. 
Over the weekend I saw 82 year old Glenda Jackson on Broadway in King Lear. If you aren’t a theater buff, you probably haven’t heard of her. In NYC, she’s a reason why people will go see a show. As I sat and watched her perform The Bard, I felt inspired. Every "no" that I had gotten the week before suddenly seemed small. Here's an older woman getting on a stage in front of hundreds of people, moving around better than the 20 year olds in the show, plus giving two intense performances a day.

When you train yourself to be in it to win it that's exactly what happens. You can do anything and everything you set your mind to.  Now go be a badass!

Crazy About Cognac

As you may know…I love me some Cognac. It’s my favorite spirit. Something about brandy says: elegance, beauty, and history. Some of you may have missed National Cognac Day (June 6th), this may even be the first time you’ve heard of it. In case you haven’t given Cognac the love that it deserves, allow me to share some reasons why you should get into it:


Reason 1: It’s Damn Delicious

“Celebrate for the simple reason that cognac is delicious. Swapping out cognac for rye in a Manhattan or bourbon in a sour or daisy is as easy as picking up a different bottle, so it’s certainly not a tough spirit to mix with, especially the younger V.S. and V.S.O.P. bottlings that don’t cost an arm and a leg.” — Joaquín Simó of Pouring Ribbons, New York

Reason 2: Experience the OG Spirit

“It is the original brown spirit of America. French settlers brought the best of France to America hoping to reproduce its elegance in the New World. It is believed that cognac was in one of America’s first and most influential cocktails, the Sazerac.” — Tobin Shea of Redbird, Los Angeles
