eatdrinkTC’s Friday Cocktail Hour is a brand new feature where we’ll feature original cocktails from some of Traverse City’s most creative cocktail artists. Our thanks go out to Michael Ruhlman for letting us share his Friday Cocktail Hour concept. Tune in next Friday for another!
Katie Asher has been bartending for a little over 3 years, but has worked as a hostess, server and even dishwasher. She got into making cocktails after living in Chicago and being surrounded by creative and talented people in the industry. Katie began working at Bar Pastoral, a wine bar in Lakeview, to become a more well-rounded bartender. In addition to building her knowledge of wine, she created the cocktail menu for Bar Pastoral for two seasons using almost all local spirits.
