The word "proof" was coined years ago when ships that were unloading their cargo of whiskey had only one way to tell the strength of the liquor they were carrying. They mixed a pinch of gunpowder with a spoonful of whiskey and when a lighted match was dropped into the mixture, it ignited with an loud “proof!” Today, there are better ways of determining an alcohol's proof, but they're not as much fun as the old-fashioned way!

Professional Mixologist and Bartender Extrodinaire

Hi! I'm Bobbi! From the local pubs of Virginia to the sunny shores and resorts of Florida, I've bartended for major US based resort chains and for private clients all over the United States. Whether you want to craft cocktails in a high-end establishment or pour beers at the local pub, I'm here to teach you not just how to be a bartender, but how to be a GREAT bartender! It takes some savvy and charisma, along with a knowledge of drinks, to be a successful bartender. I've not only been a provider of drinks, I'm an organizer, a cashier, a friend, a psychiatrist and a neat freak among other things. As a professional mixologist, I've learned many lessons which have added to my loyal customer following and very high tip percentage -now I'd like to teach them to YOU!
