Introducing Threshers Expert - Bartender Katie

At Threshers, we are all about spreading joy, enjoying the good stuff, and celebrating the convenience of the online alcohol delivery. With the help of our Threshers experts, we are able to inspire our audience to experiment with new tastes and dive deeper into what gives them that #ThreshersFeeling. 

Meet Katie May Vaughan @bartender_katie

Having previously worked at a bar in Worcestershire, Katie has stepped away from pub life and stepped into the world of at-home mixology. With the use of social platform Instagram, her stunning cocktails, beautifully garnished drinks, tips from the trade and helpful how-to videos have been inspiring drink lovers from all over to try her creations and enjoy alcohol from the comfort of their own homes. 

To get to know Katie a little better, we asked her a couple of questions in a Threshers-style interview and challenged her to create a  sweet summer cocktail using Ciroc Summer Citrus.

Q1 - Why opt for an online alcohol delivery service like Threshers to provide your bottles or tipple?

Katie - "I personally live in the middle of nowhere and my closest place to buy alcohol is the local shop that's filled with beer and cider! Buying alcohol online means I get such a variety to choose from. I can find what I am looking for without having to make any compromises and sometimes it's quicker than actually going shopping!"

Q2- If you could only drink one type of wine for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

Katie - "Viognier, 100%. I got into Viognier at my old workplace and now it's the only wine I seem to drink. If I had to choose a red it's got to be a Pinot Noir."

Q3 - What is the weirdest cocktail you have ever created? 

Katie - "Not so much a cocktail but I used to serve a regular who ordered sambuca and tequila in milk with ice.. I think that's more gross than weird."
