“I can’t wait for the event! It’s something new and exciting for me. I’ve worked in restaurants and pubs before but have mainly worked in high volume night clubs for the past 20 years. What brought me to Las Vegas from Canada was flair bartending, which I have been doing for 10 years. I am very used to being on stage and having a great time with an audience or guests.”
What is your game plan for the event?
“On my side of things, I plan to make a great cocktail that goes down easy, smells great and pairs perfectly with the food. I am doing something simple in order to get it out fast and easy but isn’t boring. I will definitely use all the tools in my bag to get as many crowd favorite chips as we can.”
What do you enjoy about food & cocktail pairings?
“The best part for me is that moment you find a new flavor that wasn’t in the cocktail or dish before having them together.”
Tell us about the spirit that you will be using?
“I get the privilege of using Tito’s handmade Vodka from Texas. I am excited to make a great cocktail in a spirit category that most mixologists want overlook.”
