TODD THRASHER2016 Spirits of Mexico Judge
Todd Thrasher, a native Virginian, is a lover of many things—scuba diving, the island of Bonaire, playing golf and cooking. Most importantly, however, is his love for the creation of the perfect artisan cocktail and his knowledge of wine. Thrasher’s expert wine lists and trend setting cocktails for Alexandria, Virginia’s Restaurant Eve, Society Fair and PX have earned him acclaim and garnered him highly coveted awards. He brings a distinguished vintage palate and a keen eye for the freshest ingredients and a deep love of the hospitality industry. His passion is evident from the wine pairings he creates to accompany the Restaurant Eve tasting menus to his highly coveted Edenesque Cocktails. At PX, named for VIP patrons of Eve, Thrasher executes “bar magic” to guests with whimsical cocktails and at the wine centric Society Fair, Thrasher created ‘Tails’ of the Vine,’ his take on wine influenced cocktails.
