DIG was excited to have Andrew’s Cocktails & Castoffs-themed menu for our April 27th private event taking us on a journey through food, visiting DIG’s gardens in Africa while keeping us sustainably rooted in our personal landscape. His fare was thoughtfully paired with Sara Crissman’s one-night-only signature cocktail.
Originally from Orlando, Fl, Sara has been working in hospitality since 2007. After moving to Seattle in 2012, Sara landed at Spinasse on Capitol Hill and has worked at various restaurants throughout the city. In 2017, Sara made the move behind the bar to focus on craft cocktails and spirits. Sara joined the team at Baker’s- Sunset Hill in 2019 and hasn’t looked back!
“My first love was wine and after I became a sommelier, I really wanted to apply my studies on spirits from around the world. I love to pair cocktails and food together. Understanding unique flavors of both food and drink and finding the right match that goes together well is something I love to do. It’s my goal to provide warm hospitality and create an environment where guests can relax and enjoy. When hospitality is done right, I see that as a form of art.”
