E174 Lisa Talbert


This weeks guest is Lisa Talbert who joins us from Portland, Oregon. Lisa is a career bartender with over 15 years behind the bar in a variety of bar settings. This ranges from dive bars, upscale dining, family dining, casinos, distilleries and craft cocktail lounges.

Lisa started her drinkstagram journey in the wake of the pandemic as a hobby, and a little break for herself from having to homeschool her kids during that time. Lisa loved photography, so she did some YouTube and Google research, absorbed as much photography info as she could and @lisa.sips on Instagram was born.

Lisa grew up in the Fiji Islands in the South Pacific. Fiji is an extremely diverse country, with a vast food history and Lisa uses that influence as flavor inspiration for her cocktails. Fiji does not have a prevalent drinking culture, so it's a way for Lisa to border the two. Being able to share her creativity through cocktails has become therapy for Lisa. As a result of starting the Instagram page - we can quote Lisa on the following : “I has been fortunate to receive an extensive education on techniques, spirits and the history of the industry than I ever would have if I hadn't started my page. The possibilities of cocktails are endless!”
