    Cocktails with Heather: Curious Rebel

    By Heather Freyer–

    Bartender Ash Haussermann, who is a member of our LGBTQ community and is the drink duchess at Instagram, is the lead bartender at Sally Can Wait in NYC. She is an alumni of The Roosevelt Room in Austin, TX; Blacktail in NYC; and the iconic Clover Club in Brooklyn. There, she worked with talented Julie Reiner for three years. (Reiner, in turn, is the protégé of legendary bartender Dale DeGroff.) Ash, who created this well-balanced elixir, is on her way to fame among the current generation of bartenders.
