Lauren Vasquez and Andrea Morales, are mixologists at RiverMarket Bar and Kitchen in Tarrytown and they’ll be serving up delicious cocktails at the YWCA White Plains & Central Westchester’s Turn Up the Heat by-the-bite fundraiser.
New Jersey native, Lauren, a high school teacher and coach by day and mixologist extraordinaire by night, has spent the last two years honing her craft behind the bar at RiverMarket Bar and Kitchen in Tarrytown NY. Lauren is passionate about food, service and hospitality and has a keen eye for detail – her ability to create perfectly balanced, imaginative, seasonal cocktails are the cornerstone of her style.
Lauren acknowledges that she initially got behind the bar to make a quick buck, but after learning about the art of the cocktail from some of the best in the business, it became obvious that she was a born natural when it came to her drink creation and spirit knowledge skills.
You can find her smiling behind the bar at RiverMarket, ready to introduce Westchester to the best classic cocktails and amazing seasonal cocktail creations.
