Our Founder: Alexi

Since 2011, while working in the bridal and catering industry, Alexi discovered she loved the science and creativity inherent in exceptional bartending.

When starting out, they first mastered the basics in order to learn how and where they could best innovate and include their creative flair. In 2016, she was awarded the Sundance Film festival’s “Drink of Choice” aptly named “The Show Stopper”.

From 2015-2017, Alexi was also Diageo’s western states brand ambassador for Johnny Walker. This gave her the opportunity to earn certification and stewardship in American, Scottish, and Irish whiskeys. 

When coming up with new drinks and cocktails, Alexi always keeps flavor profiles in mind and focuses on maintaining their balance. Nevertheless, their curiosity and fun spirit help make sure that this talented Mixologist is always coming up with new surprises.

When Alexi isn’t hard at work, she loves spending time with her husband, Joe, and adorable muppet pup, Lennon, and cat, Ash.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does "Specialty Cocktail" mean?


When you choose either our "Copper" or "Polished" Packages, your bar will have specialty cocktails. Our skilled bartenders and mixologist will craft recipes designed with your event in mind.

We have a busy schedule and we want to make sure that we can deliver our best to every client. We ask for at least a 2-week notice events.




Do you supply the liquor or do I?


The Copper Package, The Polished Package, and The Full-Bar Package can be quoted to provide liquor at the request of the client. We purchase (On the client’s behalf) mid-range brands. We are not selling liquor, as we legally cannot with Utah Liquor Guidelines. Everything purchased on the client’s behalf is subsequently turned over to the client at the end of the night. You keep everything that is purchased. However, if you decide that you would like to provide your own liquor that is perfectly fine. We do require that anything that is intending to be served at your event is turned over to the bar to be properly and legally poured. If you decide to provide your own drinks, please let us know we will update the quote to reflect this.




Do I need to provide cups?


Yes, we do. We offer glassware as well as biodegradeable drinkware. We offer post-event recyclable services where we gather as much glass, biodegradeable cups and paper products that we can making clean-up easier and reducing overall waste.

All garnishments are included in the cost of the package you choose.




Are cocktail tastings available?


Yes, we do. We offer Pre-event Cocktail Tastings where we come to your home and make 4 sample cocktails for you and up to 5 guests.

Some of our guests are not drinkers. Do you offer non-alcoholic options?


Yes, we do. We understand that options are key to any great bar! Our Copper, Polished and Full service Packages offer sodas, mocktail variations of the cocktails being served and self-serve homemade lemonade. We can also offer fruit and herb infused waters as well.




Does my event have to have a tip jar?


No, it does not. During the final stages of the reservation process, we offer two tiping options: 1. Bartender Gratuity - Partial This is a 10% gratutity that is given directly to the bartenders. However, if this option is chosen we do require a tip jar and venmo sign be made available to guests. 2. Bartender Gratutity - Full This is a 21% gratuity that is given directly to the bartenders. When this option is chosen, you made decide to for go the tip jar and venmo sign. Our bartenders are very talented and provide excellent service. We want to make sure that they are taken care of.




What if I need longer than the time I have booked?


No worries! We’ve planned for this. Based on the size of your party we determine an hourly fee that we will charge. Our bartenders are able to stay as late as 1 AM.




Are you insured? Are you licensed?


We sure are! We have Liquor Liability Insurance to bartend on both private and public properties. All our bartenders and mixologists are liquor licensed by the State of Utah and in compliance with SIPS and TIPS. If you venue is in need of a copy of insurance, please send them to Alexij@thehammeredcopper.com




I'm a venue owner. Will The Hammered Copper leave the area a mess after they are done?


Absolutely not! Our event bartending packages are all-inclusive. This does include post-event clean-up. We will leave it better than we found it.




We don't have a bar can you supply one?


We sure can! We have several physical bar rental options available.




Do you travel?


Yes! We pride ourselves on being one of the few mobile bartending services that caters to the entire state.




I want a cash bar at my event, can you do that?


This question is kind of tricky. If your event is un-premitted (meaning it is a private event ie. weddings) No, we cannot. Most of our clients who want a cash bar do so because they are concerned about over-serving and buying too much for their event. Our priority is for you and your guests to have the best time, our job is to make sure it is done responsibly. If you are hosting an event when the public is invited, you must acquire a Small Event Permit. Once that is completed we are able to host a cash bar.




Do you serve shots?


We get asked this a lot. Most event spaces in Utah are concerned about event getting out of control or over serving. This mean many of them will not allow the bartender to serve shots on the premise. Most of the time we do not serve shots. However, we make special exceptions when the client is able to get the venue manager/owner to allow it in writing.
