Welcome to the FIRST episode of Mixing Up Midlife, a weekly show for mid-lifers and empty nesters who want to shake up their middle years one challenge at a time. 

Each week Terri, a self-described “Boomer by Birth, Millennial at Heart”, and her guests will be tackling their lists of Big Ideas- things they’ve always dreamt of doing or have been curious about trying, but hadn’t had the freedom (or courage) to do. And, they’ll do it with a cocktail in hand! Part reality show, part audio diary and part cocktail hour, join us each week for adventures in midlife!

Make sure to subscribe to the show, so you won’t miss a thing!


In this episode we’ll start off with a little Midlife Mixology and we’ll use a Smirnoff Ice in a cocktail.


Recipe: 2oz. Cucumber Vodka  2-3 sprigs each of lemon balm and mint

muddle lemon balm and mint in a cocktail shaker add 2oz. of Cucumber Vodka and shake with ice. Pour over a strainer, into a rocks glass and fill to top with Smirnoff Ice Original Flavor. Garnish with a mint leaf.


What’s Icing anyway and what’s a malt beverage?

Fun and growth can be had at any age, so what’s next and how are you actively planning your forward momentum?

Terri talks about the 5 Big Ideas that she’s willing to tackle. Those 5 ideas are:

1.Taking an Improv class

2. Finding her personal style

3. Going to a conference or dinner by herself

4.Have a professional photo shoot in a public space

5. Start a Podcast


Join us with your own list of Big Ideas challenges and take on Midlife in a fun way!
