Mixologist Expert

Meet Mixology Expert Tiffany Bayless and taste her signature cocktails at the event.

Tiffany is a restaurant and hospitality veteran who got her start in the industry at a young age. Raised in Northern California, Tiffany worked at restaurants in her hometown before transitioning into a position at Lyfe Kitchen. There, she traveled across the country, helping to open seven restaurants within two short years.

She elevated her skills and experience at Bourbon Pub as the Lead Bartender where she collaborated with Diane Mina on a Bloody Mary bar that was tested as a pop-up at the MINA Test Kitchen in 2016. Tiffany joined the MINA Test Kitchen full time where she created original cocktails and curated beer lists that inspired a new restaurant concept such as the International Smoke pop-up.

As the current Lead Bartender at International Smoke, she focuses on creating a fun, bold, and seasonal cocktail menu that parallels the global flavors served by the kitchen. She takes pride in educating both her team and guests on spirits from around the world, as well as creating her own original syrups, purees, and infusions for fun twists on classic cocktails.
