Meet Sash Nguyen


My name is Sashaline, but my friends call me Sash. My whole life I’ve always tried to surround myself with beautiful and innovative creations whether it be art, music and fashion but it wasn’t until I started bartending at Welton Room four years ago that I learned the art of craft cocktails. That opened my eyes to a whole different world. It truly fascinated me how a simple drink could be elevated in so many different ways yet still embody great taste. From different smoking techniques to the usage of liquid nitrogen, I am very grateful to have the opportunity to be immersed within the world of bartending and all the skills that come with it.

The Inspiration

With the crisp and cold season inching upon us, we wanted to curate a cocktail that incorporates a feeling of warmth and nostalgia provided by the aroma of the smoked applewood chips in resemblance to that of a campfire. What better way to showcase a smoked cocktail than using a wine decanter to infuse the smoke all while encapsulating a dramatic and sexy pour into the wine glass in which the smoke hits the glass first?
