Name: Ethan Jeremiah

Bar: Twist Lounge

Age: 24

Where are you from? Asheboro, N.C., but I’ve been living in Greensboro for five years now

How long have you been bartending? For almost 4 years 

How did you become a bartender? I was a drag queen working at some different bars and clubs around Greensboro, and a friend of mine got me a bartending job at one of the bars I was performing at. Once I got my butt kicked a couple of times during busy shifts, I got the hang of things!

What do you enjoy about bartending? I love getting to know people from all different walks of life and hearing their story. There’s always a story behind why someone is drinking and you never know what you’re gonna hear from someone!

What’s your favorite drink to make? I always love making a Mojito

What’s your favorite drink to drink? I actually don’t drink anymore. I’ve been sober for about a month now and planning on keeping it that way

What would you recommend as an after-dinner drink? Old Fashioned with Woodford and Vanilla-Orange Bitters

What’s the craziest thing you’ve seen while bartending? There are way too many memories to choose just one, but probably the night a guy tried to convince me he had seen me in porn before. I had to repeatedly assure him I had never been in a porn. I eventually decided to cut him off.

What’s the best/biggest tip you’ve ever gotten? $600! There was a guy that spent over $1,000 at the bar that night buying drinks for himself and other people and left me $600 cash at the end of the night. It was W I L D! I hope he’s doing well, haha!
