She now puts all of her knowledge to great use, serving classic cocktails behind the bar at The Plum Café + Kitchen, designing numerous cocktail menus, and crafting her own signature cocktails for competitions on the national circuit. Lorilei has now expanded her repertoire by stepping into a brand ambassador position for local Chagrin Falls’ distillery, Tom’s Foolery.
