Meet the shopAGA Artist

Thursday, November 3, 4-7pm

Who says mocktail making isn't art?

Meet JoAnne Pearce, a graphic designer, marketing consultant and creator of Mock-Ups Mocktails. She started making mocktails as a way to keep her hands busy every day at 5pm during a 90-day alcohol-free challenge. The habits stuck – both living sober and inventing mocktails. 

Mock-Ups Mocktails has since grown, partnering with local company Token Bitters. Together, their products blend to create an amazing collection of non-alcoholic beverages, featuring local farm-grown ingredients. 

You can meet JoAnne while she conducts a tasting of her Mocktails and talks about Token Bitters.
