We were thrilled when Tom was invited to mix it up with The Storied Table and asked to reveal some of his favorite drink recipes for their YouTube channel. As the chief mixologist here at EC, Tom serves up unique cocktails and specialty beverages for clients of all kinds at corporate and social events, home parties and weddings.
