Hi and Welcome to The Best Drink Recipes!

With more than 30 years of experience in the wine and spirits industry, Ellen knows a thing or two about cocktails. She has worked as a bartender and for a wine and spirits wholesale distributor before starting a wine and spirits brokerage company with her husband, Carl.

After 15 years of writing two columns for the Tampa Bay Times, formerly the St. Petersburg Times, Ellen decided to start a food blog, Family Around the Table. That was in 2010.

After years of entertaining, friends encouraged her to start a cocktail blog, and The Best Drink Recipes was born. Not wanting to focus only on cocktails, Ellen also includes hot and cold beverages with many being kid-friendly and perfect for a designated driver. Please remember to always drink responsibly.
