Description

Phuc Yea co-owner, Aniece Meinhold, is BOLD -  a mover and shaker in Miami's ever-growing culinary scene, with a passion for food, wine, and truly exceptional cocktails. Meinhold, is nothing short of a pioneer in the hospitality industry - one that doesn’t just set trends, but rather blazes trails in the mixology world. Longtime Festival friend, Gio Gutierrez aka @ChatChowTV, invites Meinhold to mix, blend and shake her avant-garde ‘ Femme Fatale’ cocktail creations featuring: exotic ingredients, Vietnamese flavors, hints of heat and strong punches of flavor!

Gutierrez and Meinhold will be joined by Areina Thomas, Bacardi’s Senior Portfolio Ambassador, for an additional dose of girl power and to drop knowledge on all things Bacardi. Thomas’ deep-seated passion for all things food & drink is evident in her continued drive to mentor, teach, and inspire those around her on behalf of the brand’s exceptional and award-winning portfolio. Join us for a mixology class unlike any other, but be forewarned - it’s Meinhold’s world, and we’re all just living in it for this unapologetically brazen class, broadcast live from SGWS Wynwood!
