About the BellaOnline Cocktails Editor
Sandy Hemphill


Here at BellaOnline Cocktails, we’re shakin’ up a fresh batch of reasons (reasons!?!) to party every day of the year. You’ll find cocktails for every occasion, plus recipes, history, news, education, party themes, decorating ideas, drinking games, trivia, fun . . .everything! Almost. If you don’t find it here, please let me know. I’ll research your query and respond as soon as I can.

My two decades of hands-on work at every station of the hospitality industry has made life fun and delicious. I love sharing what I know and I’m going to share with you all I know about cocktails, including how to serve them, how much to serve, how to shop for a party, and how to pair foods and beverages so lusciously your party guests will beg for a second invite!

I spend most of my time writing about foods and beverages these days and I sell handmade gourmet foods at local farmers markets, crafts shows, and a friend´s antique store on Main Street. I am a 1997 honors graduate of Western Culinary Institute in Portland, Oregon. I took bartending classes in Austin, Texas, in the 1980s.

Let me know what you’re thinking, what you’re drinking, and what you want to see here at BellaOnline Cocktails. The more I hear from you, the more you´ll enjoy my writing.

And in the words of a heartening Irish toast: May we all be alive at this same time next year!
