Our Story

Our story at just cocktails started in 2012′.

We needed an outlet. It was early in the cocktail revolution, and thorough references were scarce. What started as a personal blog is now an international organization of creative people within the Hospitality industry.

Over time our story grew and we started to branch out our services. Now we write. Professionally photograph, make video and report on industry events. We represent and speak on behalf of national and international brands.

Our passion is to develop beverage programs and train front of house staff. We have more than 50 years experience between us across 15+ countries.
