Allow me to introduce you to Amy Burns, whimsical bartender at Hampton + Hudson as well as competitor at the High Museum of Art’s High Ball. Originally from Toronto, Amy now lives in Atlanta with her 15 year dog, Bill Murray. Amy studied Art History at Georgia State and was more than excited that a mixology competition was being held amongst such amazing art. Her travels abroad have had a great deal of inspiration on tge development of her craft cocktails. She has a love for Tiki drink as “you can never be sad with a Tiki drink in front of you!” Her theme for the competition is Alice in Wonderland. I’m already a fan! You should probably grab a ticket so you don’t miss out! February 18th is the day! Be there!
