What We're About

The Cocktail Collective started as a passion project for bringing upcycled barware and glassware to cocktail and spirits enthusiasts and teaching virtual cocktail classes during the pandemic.

 

We started small but we quickly became mighty! Our cocktail and spirits education classes are for anyone and everyone who is interested in or already working in the bar industry. 

We love hunting unique and upcycled bar and glassware and creating craft and classic cocktail kits. 

 

Our goal is to make bartending a fun and enjoyable experience. We hope you enjoy it. 

 

Cheers!

In 2011, while working in the bridal and catering industry,

Alexi discovered she loved the science and creativity inherent in exceptional bartending.  She began her journey into the world of mixology and studied with the best of the best.  In 2016, she was awarded the Sundance Film festival’s “Drink of Choice” aptly named “The Show Stopper”. From 2013-2017, Alexi was also Diageo’s western states brand ambassador for Johnny Walker. This gave her the opportunity to earn certification and stewardship in American, Scottish, and Irish whiskeys. 

 

She brings an outgoing personality, exceptional customer service and communication skills, reliability, and integrity to her trade.  And, she insists on this level of professionalism from each member of her team.

 

When Alexi isn’t hard at work, she loves spending time with her husband, Joe, and adorable muppet pup, Lennon.
