Hey, I am Josue and I am the guy behind the garnish!!!
I was born and raised in Venezuela, hence the crazy accent I have. I ended up moving to the United States for college, and during this time I was introduced to the bar scene, firstly for the drinking aspect and later being behind the stick to pay the college bills. It transitioned from a weekend "easy money" gig to a career I love and am super passioned about. I currently bartend at Odd Birds in St Augustine, Florida, a town that I have made my home. I am all about the guest experience; if the customer doesn't leave my bar with a smile on their face and with the thought of bringing their friends over the following weekend, well I didn't my job. We have a big sign at the bar that reads "Trust you Bartender" and we stand by it, I enjoying introducing guests to new spirits, and if I don't have your favorite one, I'll blend what I have to reach that particular flavor profile (unless it's fireball, I am not doing that!)
I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say "because of you, I didn't give up. I'd rather be completely exhausted from the hard times which breed success... than well rested from achieving nothing.
