Jennifer-Lynn

Hello, I'm Jennifer-Lynn.

Friendly, highly guest orientated bartender from South Africa. Having a broad span of knowledge on spirits and cocktails, I am always eager to learn more.



I am South African and Belgian, so I am able to work in the EU. My passion for bartending began after a terrible motorcycle accident. I hade extra time on my hands and became fascinated by the art of cocktail creation. I have completed several online training courses and have self-taught through cocktail books, YouTube and Facebook cocktail groups to the point where I have a vast knowledge of spirits and cocktails on hand, but there is always room for more. I don't have a lot in the way of work experience in a conventional bar. For quite a while I was a home bartender only, but that change after 2020 and the pandemic. I have freelanced a bit for some festivals and country markets when the opportunity arose as well as created signature cocktails for wedding couples. A guest's experience and delight when receiving a well created cocktail is my main focus and one of my biggest strengths. Being able to create something unique and tasty for a guest and see their reaction is one of the best feelings in the world.
