Best Shot Co. started in March 2020 when I got a call from my boss to tell me that all restauraunts had to temporarily shut their doors due to the growing pandemic. Having a background in teaching and leading in-person cocktail tastings for local liquor stores, I decided to start teaching cocktail classes (then called Boozehound Cocktail Series) over Zoom until the pandemic was over and my restauraunt was back to normal—Oh, how hopeful I was then!
Since that first cocktail class, Best Shot Co. has expanded to offer bi-weekly cocktail classes, virtual events and corporate event planning, and consulting services for both the home drinker and the professional bar world! It's my goal to help foster an enviornment where alcohol, wine, and great food can be center-stage without pretentsion, elitism, or gatekeeping.
I am a Memphis native and Head Cocktail Nerd of Best Shot Co! I started working behind the bar in 2012 where I discovered a passion for the hospitality industry, great drinks, and serving others. Here at Best Shot Co, I'm a food/drink blogger, content creator, and all around boozer with a particular love of mezcal sours and italian wine.
