When the Covid-19 pandemic began, life got rough for restauranteurs and bartenders. Morgan McKinney was laid off with the rest of her bar staff in March of 2020, but that didn't stop her from wanting to share cocktails with the world. Best Shot Co. became her answer to drinkers who suddenly found themselves at imbibing at home—by bringing the neighborhood bar right into their living room.
Morgan created Best Shot Co. because she believes that anyone can make great cocktails, not just professional bartenders. Weekly Pour & Lore virtual cocktail classes are designed to teach both experinced and beginner cocktail enthusiasts how to mix their favorite drinks without pretension.
Morgan is passionate about bringing community and compassion to happy hours around the world. Best Shot Co. has collaborated with clients in the United States, Canada, and the UK to unify corporations with their employees and customers over cocktails, history, and a damn good time.
Morgan is a Memphis native and head cocktail nerd of Best Shot Co. She started working as a bartender in 2012 where she discovered a passion for the hospitality industry, great drinks, and serving others.
Here at Best Shot Co, she is a food and drink blogger, content creator, and casual boozehound with a particular love of Mezcal and Italian wine.
