os Angeles native Nicolas O'Connor entered the New York City mixology scene as a brand ambassador for Leblon Cachaca. Exploring the city's vibrant cocktail culture, he fell in love with not only the scene but with the science and art of mixology.
At Leblon, Nicolas had the opportunity to work alongside and learn from some of the industries leading mixologists, including Junior Merino, and Naren Young. This experience provided a basis and an understanding of the possibilities the world of mixology has to offer. Nicolas currently leads the team at Apothéke as head mixologist, and also consults at Calexico in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. He also runs his self-established catering and consulting company, Green Hour Mixology.
