Life - If You Can Dream It You Can Do It - Disney Cocktails5:21:00 pm
HOW AMAZING ARE THOSE! Cocktails by Cody is the best thing the internet has allowed me discover so far this year, well aside from my Stila 'Gemma' lisptick but that was a given. As soon as the Cinderella masterpiece popped up on my Facebook news feed I was transported to a daydream of Disney themed fancy dress parties and matching beverages. These are the most amazing cocktails I have ever layed eyes on and now I'm addicted to Cocktails by Cody's Facebook page awaiting the newest invention.
On discovering these Disney themed cocktails I just had to get in touch with the man himself and ask him a couple of questions. Let me introduce you to the genius behind these creations, Cody.
How did Cocktails by Cody all begin?
I started dabbling in mixology shortly after I turned 21, I saw bar tending as a skill set that would provide some decent financial reward. I practised for a good 8 months learning everything I could, but as soon as I started applying places nobody would even look at me without a year minimum experience. With this set back I decided to brand myself as Cocktails by Cody, build some web presence, and attack the job market from a new angle. I decided a few Disney themed drinks would get me a bit of traction and beef up my web traffic. With the help of Tumblr and Facebook, within 6 days my cocktail creations had been seen by over 2.5 million people.
How are you finding the attention ? It's been crazy, but the support is overwhelming, I'm very thankful
What's next for Cocktails by Cody?
I am currently plugging away at this e-book for the drinks and their much anticipated recipes which will be out this year and I aim to make another themed cocktail book sometime after. I will be sure to keep everyone posted!
I'm so glad I got the chance to ask Cody these few questions as his story behind his journey from wannabe bartender to cocktail magician is quite remarkable, once again proving my point of how powerful social media can be.
I'm super excited to see what he comes up with next and secretly hoping for an Up themed cocktail, my favourite Disney film ever, which one is your favourite?
