Marie Yoshimizu

Cocktail Enthusiast, Mixologist, Mobile and Home Bartender

My name is Marie, a.k.a. Mix with Marie on social media. I’m a mobile and event bartender in Seattle, WA on weekends and holidays and a rocket scientist by day. My mixology journey has begun at home in June 2020 as one of my new hobbies during the pandemic. Now that things are going back to normal, I became a mobile and event bartender in Western Washington area through Party On The Rocks to obtain hospitality skill in a fast-paced environment.

Three words to describe me as a bartender/mixologist are “curious, creative, competitive”. I have been competing in cocktail competitions since 2021. I love meeting talented bartenders and mixologists across the states and learning new skills and techniques from them. I also like to hear judges’ critiques each time, and make the best out of it for the next competition. I entered the USBG presents World Class sponsored by DIAGEO for the first time this year, and became one of the top 30 competitors in the US. I am happy with what I have become as a professional mixologist and I can’t wait to advance my mixology skills and techniques even further.
