The Year of the Dragon had just begun. Jason and Julie were living in Germany with their two children, and feeling a little removed from the fun they knew Jason’s side of the family would be having celebrating the Chinese New Year back in the U.S. among friends.
But today would be different. They were going to do something about it.
Jason went to the fridge and looked for something with which to start creating. He pulled out 100% cranberry juice. Lemons. A chunk of fresh ginger. Some vodka. Shaken over ice, strained into a couple martini glasses, and dusted with freshly micro-planed nutmeg. When Julie tasted, her eyes said it all. It was good. They christened it the Dragon Kiss, in honor of the occasion and the color which matched Julie’s lipstick. It was just one more moment of fun memories made with good drinks and great people. Each drink was as new and fresh as the thrill of ending your day in the company of people you love.
This is where Nimble Nectar began. It started slow with a few realizations about the joyous adventure of creating cocktails, then growing into an all-consuming passion. The more they shared their creations with friends, the more they wanted to do that with their lives—and share it with the world.
Soon they would get their chance.
In 2015, they started Nimble Nectar and have enjoyed every moment of mixing, naming and sharing their unique and delicious cocktail flavors with the world. Says Julie, “We get to help people enjoy the sunset with the people they love.”

The Dragon Kiss:
3 oz vodka

Pro tip for an elegant finish: add a tablespoon of raw egg white to the vodka and give it a good swirl (vodka will kill any germs). Shake over ice and strain into a martini glass. This will give it a beautiful light pink foam. Then dust it with freshly micro-planed or grated nutmeg.

Houston Food Bank
When Houston was hit by devastating flooding from Hurricane Harvey, we wanted to help Jason’s fellow Texans by donating through the great people at the Houston Food Bank. [insert joke about bad timing of drinking?] Cocktails aside, Nimble Nectar is shelf stable and high in vitamin C, helping out many in need when the refrigerated supply of fresh fruit and vegetables was disrupted. Cheers to Alonna Johnson and our friends @HoustonFoodBank, working hard every day to help those in need!
Imani Christian Schools
Our friends Bryan and Carrie have an extraordinary heart for the most desperately needy and vulnerable of this world, the orphans and extremely impoverished children of Embu, Kenya. Without help, these poor children have a very uncertain future. What can you think Bryan and Carrie did when they saw this need? These fellow entrepreneurs founded a school! @ImaniChristianSchool feeds, boards, and educates the neediest children of Embu, delivering these downtrodden children from utter desperation on the streets to a real chance in life. Going far beyond their basic needs, Imani provides them with an education that will equip them for college, for a future role in their government and society, and for a chance to change the future of their people. We’re so happy to support @TemeculaCoffeeRoasters, another venture of Bryan and Carrie, which buys coffee from the farmers of Kenya, creating a sustainable model to invest in the local economy and lift the children and people of Embu to a better future.
Temecula Valley School District
We love our schools in Temecula, CA and are so blessed by the dedicated teachers and administration who care for our kids. When we heard they wanted to build a new computer lab at our kids’ school, and were raising money to do so, we couldn’t think of a better investment. We’re so happy to be a small part of building that lab so that our kids have the best tech possible. Hats off to the amazing educators in Temecula, CA!
Boys and Girls Club of America
We are proud to support Boys and Girls Club of America in their involvement with kids in the greater Temecula area. This great organization needs no introduction, and helps millions of kids and teens build essential skills, make lasting connections, and have fun. Hats off to the volunteers reaching the kids in our own back yard.
