Our founder, Greg Dorros, started tending bar professionally at age 17 (it was Europe in the ‘80s, and that was cool then). After growing up all around Asia and the Pacific, he attended Hotel and Restaurant school in Geneva, and went on to tend and manage bars from Switzerland to NYC.
His widely-traveled life among eclectic cultures and flavors gave him a passion for creating new and interesting tastes, and his profession gave him an opportunity to apply them specifically to cocktails. His bloody marys & margaritas were particularly legendary among friends and customers alike; he had a knack for turning this cocktail known as specialty brunch drink into a full-time best-seller.
As a bartender, he found that they couldn’t keep up with the specialty drink orders making them one at a time, so he started making large batches of the most popular mixers to save time. Since most bars at that time didn’t have a long list of ingredients to work with, Greg started bringing his own and experimenting with different flavors.
After over a decade of perfecting his bloody mary recipe for family and friends, he decided to turn his hobby into a business. Mary’s Mixers was created in 2018 and officially launched the following year, and the lineup expanded to four mixers.
Now in 2021, we have a collection of eight, beautifully balanced and unique drink mixers to choose from.
