Vendor Spotlight - J. Jackson Mobile Mixologist
When I hear the suffix "-ologist" my mind immediately jumps to something brainy and science related -- which is in a sense what J. Jackson (J is for Josh), Mobile MIXologist does with drinks! This week we got to know him a little better and learned about his unique and creative gift of creating personalized cocktails that are all you. Your guests will definitely appreciate what Josh has to offer!
What made you go into the business of private bartending?
A couple years ago, I had an idea for a bar/café concept that got me diving into researching cocktail recipes, history and various preparation methods like infusions and whatnot. As I dove into this quest of self-education, my mind got blown by the sheer vastness of information there is regarding mixology. As my knowledge grew, so did my passion. As I started to survey the local landscape, looking to see what Nashville had to offer regarding cleverly designed cocktails, I found the sector most lacking when it came to innovation was the events industry. Luckily, I have a lot of experience when it comes to events and weddings, so putting the two concepts together just seemed to click!
What are all the different ways brides can use your products?
