Mixologist Amanda Gager
StripSteak | Las Vegas
Gager only recently got into mixology after years devoted to flair bartending, but her cocktails come off like she’s been doing it for years. Citing Bobby “G” (Gleason) and Francesco Lafranconi as her top two mentors, Gager focuses on balance, texture, and flavor when creating her cocktails. Spoken like a true spirits-lover, Gager eschews “girlie” drinks, preferring to work with bourbon to make her balanced libations. Her Honey Love is a perfect example of this: a blend of bourbon, Cointreau, freshly squeezed lemon juice, honey syrup, egg white and freshly grated cinnamon. Her youthful enthusiasm for her craft and love for mixology, on top of her fantastic personality, made her an easy pick.
