Jameson takes us behind the scenes to present 12 of Brooklyn’s finest bartenders – the heroes who make it all happen. Learn about the hidden talents and signature drinks, tips beyond tipping, and even hear some of their best bar stories. This week’s bartender: Lacey Moore.
What tip would you give a new bartender that you wish you had known?
Don’t be afraid to experiment! It’s one of the fun perks of the job and a great way to learn/figure out flavors and what works. Plus, every patron likes to be a test dummy at the bar.
What’s your signature Jameson cocktail?
I like to swap out the gin for Jameson Black Barrel in a classic Negroni. It’s so smooth!
What’s your second passion outside of bartending?
I am a dancer. I work for a contemporary ballet company in the city and make my own experimental modern dance as well.
Describe your bar in one word.
What’s the strangest drink request you’ve ever received?
We recently got a small frozen drink machine for the summer and one man insists on bringing in his own bunch of bananas so we can make him banana daiquiris.
What would surprise people about being a bartender?
With the amount of free therapy I provide to my patrons, I’m saving a lot of people a ton of money!
