Introducing our Signature Cocktail, the BROKEN DRAGON, featuring Pusser's Rum!!

by Lisa M. | April 04, 2017 | 0 Comments

To those of you that know us, House of the Broken Dragon (HOTBD) is not only a destination for one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art, it's a lifestyle!
And an easy one to maintain, at that!
We often use the phrase "practical luxury" when describing our 100%, pre-washed cotton kimonos which can be machine washed and dried in the comfort of your own home.  
Similarly, our Signature Cocktail, the BROKEN DRAGON, was created for the "home bartender" in mind.  A blend of 5 simple ingredients, featuring Pusser's Gunpowder Proof Rum, is all you need to "ignite your senses!"
So if you love history, art, and luxury, you're in the right place.  Browse our blog and website, read some liquid history, discover the inspiration behind the BROKEN DRAGON cocktail, enjoy our vintage-style glamour film, order a custom kimono, sit back, relax, and enjoy this precious ride we call LIFE.

Goodbye 2016 and Hello 2017!

It's hard to believe another year has come and gone!  In reflection, we had a very good year -- wonderful experiences with some really talented people.  These creative interludes took place not only in our own beautiful home town of Sarasota, Florida, but NYC, Brooklyn, and Ybor City.  


We crossed a lot of things off our business "bucket list" this year, including the creation of a three minute full feature film produced by Canadian Burlesque Ambassador, Bettina May.  If you haven't seen it, we encourage you to check out our 1920's promotional film introducing our newest product, the Kimono Coat; and be sure to turn up the volume to listen to some original time-period music! 


So, first of all, THANK YOU to our customers, old and new, for supporting House of the Broken Dragon!  We hope you love your kimono as much as we loved creating it!


Second, THANK YOU to all of the following extremely talented and professional individuals for making memories with us this past year and beyond.


Our highlights included:


Last, but not least, we want to say THANK YOU to our family and dear friends for supporting us thru yet another year of blood, sweat and tears.  Oh, and kimono!  Lots and lots of kimono....
