ABOUT ME

THE TIPSY LIBRARIAN

HERE IN LOUISIANA, WE ARE A CULTURE OF HOSPITALITY; IT'S HOW WE SHOW LOVE. GREAT FOOD IS WHAT WE DO... AND THE COCKTAILS WE SERVE SHOULD BE THE SAME.

For years, like many people, I only drank wine because cocktails were rarely satisfying. I didn’t know enough about different spirits or how to communicate my own palate preferences. I loved the “idea” of a cocktail; the reality of them, however, almost never measured up (too sweet, too heavy, too strong…). It wasn’t until several years ago, while dropping our son off at college in Columbia, SC, where I had my first perfect cocktail, created by “Dr. Josh” Streetman of Motor Supply. It was beautifully garnished & the flavor was perfectly balanced; it was everything I ever imagined a cocktail to be. For the first time ever, I realized that the experience of drinking a cocktail, which previously only existed in my mind, could be a reality & I was instantly hooked.  Needless to say, I made sure we dined there every visit to Carolina, begging Dr. Josh to please teach me how to create this experience for myself. It took a couple of years of pleading (& finding a time & date that worked for both of us), but it finally happened. I felt empowered with my newfound knowledge & wanted more. Since then, I’ve spent my time researching the art of a beautiful craft cocktail, making thousands along the way.

LEARN MIXOLOGY

LET ME TEACH YOU HOW

If I can learn, so can you! Let me help you discover your palate & learn how to create amazing cocktails for yourself & your guests. With my librarian & educator background, you’ll learn the history, the why, & the how of the drinks you create so you can confidently apply this new knowledge to other recipes. Soon enough, you’ll be enjoying your own “vacations in a glass.”

Cheers!


Maranda,

The Tipsy Librarian
