Women Leading Rum: Panelist
Shannon Mustipher describes what she does as “spiritual advising.” That’s spirits of the alcoholic variety. After bartending full time for several years, she landed the role of beverage director at Glady’s, a Caribbean restaurant in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, which led her towards a career in cocktail and brand consulting, specifically for rum and cane spirits. Mustipher focuses on using rum and other tropical flavors to their full potential. Such is the topic of her new book, Tiki: Modern Tropical Cocktails, which was released on March 19th.
