Amy Traynor

I’m Amy Traynor, a New Hampshire-based photographer, cocktail designer and forager of wild edibles with a love of organic ingredients and a propensity for creating moody imagery. My background in fine art and my interest in herbs and medicinal plants intersected when I began learning about spirits and crafting my own variations of classic cocktails. I started Moody Mixologist in 2018 as a way to document my recipes, experiments, and wild garnishes.

Beet, Mustard and Fennel Appetizers with Martinis

It’s December, the most festive month of the year! With all of the shopping, events, and travel this time of year, my favorite holiday party recipes are ones that are delicious and fun, but also really quick and easy. Enter, Beet, Mustard and Fennel Appetizers served with classic Martini cocktails.
