Clarissa, who prefers “Red” unless she’s in some sort of trouble, has been married to the service industry since she found herself in a dish pit at eighteen years old. Her passion for mixology likely started shortly thereafter when she worked at a busy Boston-area Dunkin’ Donuts. She soon realized how complex the human palette really is. She attempted to work in the corporate world for a time, only to realize that her enormous and loud personality was not going to change. Working her way up from shot-girl to bartender and eventually to Lead Mixologist for the Bay View Collection, she has never looked back. She is supported by her amazing partner and children, two of which are also in the service industry!
