After years of climbing the corporate ladder, Ross chose to jump into bartending and hospitality because of the genuine satisfaction he gets from expressing creativity and serving others. He immediately fell in love with the craft cocktail culture and hasn’t looked back since. Fast forward to today, and he has converted into a self-proclaimed cocktail nerd and hospitality extraordinaire, immersing himself in the world of mixology and bartending.

Let Ross be your mixology guide as he shows you how to make a special Mardi Gras cocktail! Ross’s goal is to unmuddle mixology for you! You will come out of today’s happy hour with a better understanding of the cocktail culture, and more importantly an extraordinary cocktail to treat yourself to after a day of learnings and networking.

He’s now on a mission to “unmuddled” mixology, and spread the approachability of bartending and cocktails. A continuous student of the industry, Ross is an active member of the United States Bartenders Guild, a BarSmarts Academy graduate, an EquallyWed Certified Inclusive Professional, and has earned certifications from the globallyrecognized Wine & Spirit Education Trust, Tequila Regulatory Council, and more!

The ingredients you will need to have on hand for your
personal cocktail are:

Modern Hurricane

2 oz aged rum
2 oz white rum
2 oz passion fruit juice
1 oz orange juice
1/2 oz lime juice
1 tbsp simple syrup
1 tbsp grenadine

Can’t find all the above?

Just grab 4 oz aged rum, 2 oz passion fruit syrup, and 2 oz lemon juice to make the Original Hurricane recipe!
