KIM HAASARUD - 101 SHOTS
ABOUT KIM: Kim Haasarud is a James Beard-honored mixologist, author, and beverage consultant. She conceives her signature cocktails much as Alice Waters would create a specialty dish, taking inspiration from market-fresh, high quality ingredients. "Cocktails, like food, should be culinary experiences," says Haasarud. "It is about combining ingredients to create a sensation on the palate and entice all the senses with a combination of flavors, textures, aromas, and garnishes."
You won't find the standard Cosmopolitan or mix-based Margarita on Haasarud's ever-changing bar card. Instead, depending on the occasion or the season, she might shake up Martini infusing teas with fresh muddled fruits, or concoct a Margarita with ripe kumquats or a combination of kiwis and fresh herbs.

JIM KOPP - VP SALES & MARKETING, TRUETT-HURST – PAPERBOY WINE
Paper Boy is a wine that breaks rules. Breaks barriers. Breaks the way we enjoy wine, even where we experience it. From mountaintops to impromptu pool parties. Heck, even the final frontier – space. It’s the first 100% fully recyclable wine that is 80% lighter than glass and made with ultra-green packaging. Paper Boy is a quality wine that comes to us by way Truett-Hurst and VML Winery. Cool and responsible all at once, Paper Boy is truly the evolved way to wine.
