Where Is Julie Reiner From?
As rich as her life is in Brooklyn, New York, Julie Reiner still misses Hawaii, especially Oahu. Because that is where she was born and bred. Also, that is from where she drew much of her inspiration, for utilizing the freshest fruits and premier quality spices and spirits available in her original cocktails.
Growing up, young Julie always wanted to be a bartender at a Daiquiri bar on the beach. It also helped her to be inspired by her mother.
Julie’s mom loves to entertain and so there was a revolving door of visitors flying in because it was Hawaii. As for Julie, she would always be picking mangoes in their backyard, making margaritas, and passing hors d’oeuvres at the parties. So, Julie got that bug early on and in the years to come, she evolved her mother’s lessons into a bartending style that helped launch the modern cocktail movement.
