About The Cocktailery

Lively dinners with friends have always been my thing. Whether it’s a night out on the town, or an intimate dinner at home with friends, I have always been devoted to creating memorable experiences for my guests and clients regardless of the size of the party. Being an avid home chef and always thinking of ways to challenge the palates of my friends and clients, I discovered a love for crafting cocktails and creating recipes.

The result became Liberate Your Palate, a company that provides experiential culinary and beverage events, such as hands-on cocktail classes, cocktail catering services, and curated cocktail tours in Charlotte and Charleston, SC.

Liberate Your Palate conducts regular cocktail classes designed to take the Mystery out of Mixology, for the at-home enthusiast. I’m not in the business of training bartenders, but I do want to help people have fun crafting amazing cocktails that will impress their friends and family at home. To date Liberate Your Palate has hosted over 150 cocktail classes. When you bring people together in real life, over a common interest, or shared activity good things happen.

Soon, we will be expanding by launching, The Cocktailery, a cocktail supply and beverage lifestyle shop where you can purchase the necessary bar tools to replicate the same exceptional cocktails at home that you’ll be able to make in our classroom.

I also produce photo and video shoots for various global brands, plus create cocktail recipes, and social content for clients. I love to work with liquor & wine companies to make their brand’s shine whether through cocktail development, styling, photos, or events! Recent clients have included Pinnacle Vodka and Neptune Rum.

When I’m not working you can find me exploring new cocktail trends and techniques, both locally and internationally, traveling and eating, in the kitchen, or someplace with a cocktail in hand laughing way too hard with friends.
