About

We are Lauren & The Foreign and we’re excited to share with you our cocktail recipes, travel adventures, lifestyle tips and so much more! To get started, we wanted to give you some background on who we are and how Lauren & The Foreign began.

The Foreign’s real name is Julia is and she was born in Russia, but came to the United States when she was 8, and met Lauren in 5th grade. We’ve been best friends almost ever since!

In early 2018, we developed an interest in wine and spirits and have been experimenting and developing recipes for all kinds of different cocktails. We also love travelling together and have been coast to coast sight-seeing, and of course, sampling drinks!

A couple of things we both love, aside from fine wine and cocktails: chocolate covered strawberries, The Office, the beach, Joanne the Scammer (check out our parody here!), and Laffy Taffys! 

We’re looking forward to sharing more stories and recipe ideas with you soon, and we hope you follow along with us on this next exciting step in our journey!
