Hi! I'm Brynn Smith, your resident cocktail shaker and the gal behind Bartending Pretty.

An Angeleno by way of a small town in Washington state, I've worked in the hospitality industry for over ten years, during which time I developed a voracious passion for concocting libations. In 2011, at the height of the craft cocktail renaissance, that passion became a full-time career — and I've since been curating menus, managing and mixing at some of the coolest places in Los Angeles.

So... what's Bartending Pretty all about?

Bartending Pretty is where I share my personal recipes, inspiration, tips, and tricks for making all my favorite cocktails. I've developed a personal philosophy that's anchored in a love of a fresh juices, seasonal produce, old world spirits, and small batch artisanal liquor, all of which I combine with my essential (and favorite!) ingredient: beauty. Simply put, Bartending Pretty is all about sharing that philosophy, and inspiring people to bring incredible flavor to their at-home bars, complete with a little art, whimsy, and glamour.
