About Me

Welcome to Bev Nap & Coasters, my name is Jovan Diaz, and I'm thrilled to take you on a journey through the fascinating world of cocktails.

About My Journey

Having visited over 250 cocktail bars and counting, I've been fortunate enough to witness mixology at its finest across various cultures and cities. Hailing from the vibrant backdrop of New York City, I was immersed in a dynamic cocktail scene. This upbringing ignited my lifelong passion for mixology, bartending, cocktails, and the rich tapestry of flavors found in spirits.

My Passion and Expertise

As a dedicated cocktail and spirit enthusiast, I thrive on the idea of being a lifelong learner. Whether it's experimenting with new recipes, discovering unique flavor combinations, or exploring the history and techniques behind iconic cocktails, my enthusiasm knows no bounds.

Beyond Mixology

Not only do I cherish making cocktails, but I also love the experience of entertaining. There's something truly special about bringing people together, sharing stories, and creating memorable moments through the craft of mixology.

Industry Knowledge

With years of immersion in the bar industry, I've gathered a wealth of knowledge about mixology trends, spirits, bar culture, and the ever-evolving cocktail scene. I'm excited to share insights, tips, and recommendations to elevate your cocktail experience.

Join me on this exciting journey as we delve into the world of cocktails, from classic concoctions to innovative creations, and let's raise a glass to the art of mixology!

Cheers! Saluti! Yamas! Salud! Sante!
