T he Cocktail Parlor is a bakery inspired by classic and modern cocktails.

We strive to bring the renaissance of the cocktail industry to a new realm: the edible cocktail. From an Old Fashioned or Negroni cupcake, to a Dark & Stormy or Rob Rose cookie, each resembles it's cocktail elder in dessert form.

It is our goal to maintain the vitality and romanticism of the cocktail industry, one new confectionery at a time.

We focus on the smaller, more finite details in an overwhelming industry. We find the hidden notes in spirits and liqueurs and translate those flavors into our baking. The one thing that we became so enamored with in the cocktail industry was that every cocktail was completely balanced. An ode to that, every baked good we create is not only balanced but a pure emulation of the cocktail its inspired by. 

Cheers, and enjoy the frivolity that life swings your way.

Baking Business"

"Starting a small business was the most difficult adventure of my life. Through the common blood, sweat, and tears trio I’ve been able to build my sales over the past 4 years to about $20,000 annually. This is all while still holding down two other jobs and maintaining an amiable social life. 

It sounds easy enough, but the first three years were the hardest. I had only about $2-5,000 in sales, but I had spent a lot of money on incorporating the brand into an LLC, trademarking the name, general liability insurance, the rent of an industrial kitchen, digital marketing, business cards and all other paper marketing, and of course all of the necessary supplies. But that’s how most brands grow: slowly."
