“The Drinking Coach” Barriere has graced the demonstration stages of prestigious food and hospitality events such as the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival, Charleston Food & Wine Festival, BevCon, Tales of the Cocktail, Savannah Food & Wine Festival, Music to Your Mouth and more. As an author-contributor, Tiffanie’s cocktail recipes can be found in the Southern Foodway Alliance Guide to Cocktails by Jerry Slayter, Jubilee by Toni Tipton Martin, and Road Soda by Kara Newman.
Her reputation as a public historian has opened doors for her to speak on panels at such venues as Fire, Flour & Fork, Southern Foodways Symposium, and the Soul Summit, and she has interpreted the cocktails of African American and women firsts in spirits at the James Beard House in New York City.
The culinarians and chefs she have worked with reads like a Who’s Who in the Culinary Arts: Duane Nutter, Todd Richards, the late Darryl Evans, Kevin Mitchell, Deborah VanTrece, Jennifer Hill Booker, Suzanne Vizethann, Erika Council, Todd Ginsberg and Asha Gomez.
Barriere and her cocktails have been featured in such publications as Imbibe magazine (print and online), Difford’s Guide, Creative Loafing, Forbes, Essence, Southern Living, The Bitter Southerner, Cherry Bomb, Washington Post, Thrillist, Eater, Vine Pair, Food Republic, and Garden & Gun. In 2020 Tiffanie was featured on Food Networks The Kitchen and received the Tales of the Cocktails Dame of the Year award. In 2021 Tiffanie appeared as the cover photo of Imbibe Magazines for the Top 75 for Imbibe and was voted in to take the seat as the Tales of the Cocktail Dame Hall of Fame Co- Chair. Barriere has also allocated her palate nationwide by becoming a spirit’s judge for the L.A. Spirits Awards, Ascot Awards Judge with Fred Minnick, American Craft Spirits Association and New Orleans Spirit Competition. She has also taken the stage in Berlin for Bar Convent, shared birthday cocktails with Hoda and Jenna on Today Show and was featured as a guest judge on the Netflix show Drink Masters.
