Mixologist of the Month: June 2016

The Pennsylvania Licensed Beverage & Tavern Association Mixologist of the Month

June 2016: Jim Volpicelli 

Signature Cocktail:
The Cucumberland
Muddled Cucumber and Sugar
Hendrick’s Gin

With no previous industry experience, all it took for Jim Volpicelli to get behind the bar was for a friend to say “Come on man, it’ll be a good time.” Ten years later, Jim has become a well-known bartender and friend to many in the area. When asked what his favorite thing is about his job, he answered “you never work the same shift twice.” Also, over the years, he’s seen a number of interesting things and encountered a number of unforgettable people.

He believes that interacting with patrons, as well as being attentive to their needs and preferences makes him successful at his job. When Jim isn’t working, you can find him teaching his son, Kelton, the joys of heavy metal and the drums. Jim would like to give a shout out to his fellow Mixologist of the Month, Jen Hazard, whose skills continue to inspire him. Also, “Go Flyers!” Be sure to stop by to see “Big Jim” most nights of the week!
