The bubbly bar manager at Mex 1 Coastal Cantina serves up an un-bee-lievable cocktail
2018 Cocktail competition finalist Shannon Standhart has made a big splash at Mex 1 Coastal Cantina. After receiving a bartending course from her grandmother for Christmas, she fell in love with the exciting, fast-paced environment behind the bar.
Trading in the Maine coast for South Carolina’s shores, Shannon is now a bar manager at Mex 1 where she dazzles customers with her infectious smile and tasty cocktails.
Her cocktail entry “MisBEEhavin’” is a simple yet fun mix of lemon juice, agave nectar and honey liqueur. Served in a chilled glass rimmed with lemon zest and sugar, the sweet cocktail is sure to leave you buzzing with excitement.
Although she is competing against her fellow Mex 1 mixologist Morgan Hurley, Shannon is ready to take home the title. “I would love to beat him,” she said. “He would never be able to live it down.”
You can see Shannon and the other finalists of the 2018 Cocktail Competition battle it out at Charleston Wine + Food’s Souls + Saints event on November 1st. Tickets can be bought at www.charlestonwineandfood.com.
