  • A special thank you from my heart to my husband, Jamie; our daughter, Paige; my brother, Brian; my sister-in-law, Kasia; my parents, Nancy and David; and my Grandma Rosella. Thank you for your words of encouragement. Thank you, also, to my in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends, who were the finest taste-testers. Finally, a warm thank you to my mentor, teacher, and friend, Tony Abou-Ganim.


    Thanks to my wonderful family, especially my husband, Joe; our children, Michael and Allison; my sisters, Teresa and Cathy, who are also my best friends and constant source of courage; and, last but not least, my brother Peter, who can fix anything.


    We both extend gratitude to our work family and employer, Southern Wine & Spirits of Illinois, and our general manager, Will Conniff, who provides the format for us to bring our passion to the trade.

    We also extend a special thank you to the members of the United States Bartenders Guild, for their dedication and drive in raising the bar.
