Shannon Mustipher is one of the most talented female bartenders in America and a proud member of Women Who Tiki, a pop-up tropical cocktail series celebrating talented female bartenders across the country. This year, Mustipher released her first cocktail book, Tiki: Modern Tropical Cocktails, an essential guide to the ultimate rum and Tiki classics.
To celebrate the release of her new book, Shannon is mixing tropical cocktails for a comic foursome representing our favorite Miami retirees from the 80s sitcom Golden Girls in Golden Girls LIVE!.
Join Shannon this Thursday, December 10th at 5 pm pst while she shakes up some Mai Tais and the fruity white rum concoction known as a Parasol.
