The other masters of the mix
At the Master of Mix event held in Atlanta DJ’s were being recognized for their skills on the turntables. Between listening to scratches and breakdowns at this lively event, we began to realize that the DJ’s where not the only ones mixing it up on the scene. Bartender Lakeya Johnson showcased her mixing talents as well. After witnessing the mixing skills of Lakeya Johnson, we had to ask her a few questions.
If you could mix a drink for a celeb whom would you make one for, and what would you mix?
I would make one for Mary J Blige; I think she would like the peach fuzz.
What is your favorite cocktail?
The Peach fuzz!
What do you love and hate about bartending?
I love the different people every night, and then you get to see at the end of the night how liquor changes you.
If there was a sexy guy at the bar what would you mix for him?
Any mix that would spill on the floor, so he could watch me pick it up.
The Master of the Mix event, sponsored by Smirnoff and rolling out magazine, was the place to be.
