You know we love a good party around here and well, one essential part to any party is the libations of course! You can have the most beautifully styled party but if your guests walk in and aren’t greeted with some type of libation, alcoholic or not, things can take a turn pretty quick!
That is why we are bringing the expert in….and just in time for all those holiday parties that we are all going to be throwing! Grab a seat with us because mixologist master and owner of Shaken or Stirred, Brandee Perry will be joining us as we learn to sip savvy!
Brandee has such a cool background and we are so pumped to have her in the studio to help educate us on how to concoct the perfect cocktail. Did we mention that she infuses her own mix!?! Yum Yum Yum!! Check out some of the other cool things that makes us know that Brandee is pretty darn awesome (and a must have for some of your events!! )
What made you want to teach a workshop?
I love training and development. It comprises 20% of my business. Teaching a class is just another way of training but to the general public and potential clients. I am looking to learn from my students and always find out something that I never knew…..I love this!
When/how did you discover your passion for mixology?
I have been intrigued by alcohol since I was 14. I lived in a household with a parent that allowed us to explore and learn about these things without it being taboo. I love the history involved with each type of alcohol (ex: liquor, beer, wine) and how a good drink can make a person feel. I love being the person making people happy and have often been a confidant to my bar guests. I love that I get to meet different people all the time and often they are very happy to see me!
Tell us something fun about yourself!
I have a secret fantasy: I want to make Shaken or Stirred an International company. My motivation is not one of success or money. It is one of relocating to Aruba…LOL! I went to Aruba back in May of 2018 and fell madly in love with the island. I cannot stop thinking, talking, dreaming about it 🙂
I don’t trust people who don’t drink or have an outlet. Everyone needs something that allows them to relax.
I love to garden and have a HUGE yard of celosia flowers, AKA “fire in the sky”. My friends and family are scared to walk to my front door because they say it resembles the Brazilian rainforest.
I am an aunt to many of my friends and family’s fur babies (dogs only). I dog sit for everyone. I get my fix with their puppies and LOVE IT!! They tell me I need to start a dog sitting service but they don’t know it blesses me more than it does the actual parents or pets 🙂
See! We told you that she was awesome!! Come hang out with us on Thursday for a night full of fun times and tasty drinks. You can grab your ticket here!
