We headed over to Liberty Station last night to be a part of the Moniker Commons Grand Opening Party, serving up specialty cocktails for their VIPs. The workspace they’ve created for entrepreneurs is brilliant with inspiring murals, great light, multiple conference rooms, shared spaces, desks, a kitchen and even a ping pong table.

From January 25 through the 29th, Snake Oil Cocktail joined hundreds to witness 22 year-old Jon Rahm win his first career tour at the Farmer’s Insurance Open PGA Golf Tournament at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla. The victory was sweet, just like the drinks served up throughout the beautiful Torrey Pines Golf Course.
Grey Goose Lounge and Michelob Ultra Bar were just a couple of many places people could escape the sun, sit back with an icy drink, and watch the serene magic that is golf.
The week was crisp and bright, packed with golf fans attentively watching the action along the plush greens in January. The bars were packed on Saturday and Sunday as guests followed each swing and putt, and the tournament advanced to the finale.
The most popular drink of the weekend was the Grey Goose 19th Hole.
Cocktail Recipe: Grey Goose 19th Hole

Tiger Woods, Cheng Tsung Pan, Phil Mickelson, and Sebastian Munoz were some of the golf stars in attendance, stopping to thank and shake hands of fans, autographing hats and bags after each round.

On Wednesday, January 11th, the Snake Oil team headed up to the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena for the Television Critics Association press tour with Fox and National Geographic. Snake Oil served up four delicious specialty cocktails in the National Geographic Genius Bar, a 1930’s inspired cocktail bar with an Albert Einstein theme.
Our mixologists whipped up some “genius” cocktails, including the custom designed E=mc2, a vodka (or bourbon!) cocktail made with smashed pineapple, pressed lemon, holiday spiced brown sugar, egg white and aromatic bitters.
Another favorite was the Gravitational Pull, which is a delicious combination of vodka, smashed blueberry, pressed lemon, and infused lavender soda. We garnished the cocktail with thinly sliced, lemon infused jicama stars.
Due to the rain and recently chilly nights, we wanted to serve up some warm cocktails to keep guests cozy and feeling good. The It’s All Relative was a winter spiced mulled wine served with a splash of bourbon, citrus wheel and cinnamon stick. And the Accelerate was the creamiest, most delicious hot chocolate ever created. We served it with a hazelnut liquor and toasted the moon-shaped marshmallows in front of guests for a final touch. The smell was incredible and the cocktail was divine!
Aside from the delicious cocktails, the atmosphere of the party was fantastic. Celebs and guests alike enjoyed the photobooth, Nat Geo Genius swag, and a 3-foot tall cow cake, cut by the one and only Nat Geo Veterinarian, Dr. Pol, who was celebrating his 100th Anniversary.
Celebs in attendance included Queen Latifah, Emily Deschanel, Katie Aselton, Brandy, Jordana Brewster, Naomi Campbell, Sanaa Lathan, Aubrey Plaza, Serayah, Benjamin Bratt and Susan Sarandon, among many others.
