Name: Jason Morris
Title: Founding Partner / Beverage Director
Find me mixing drinks at… CRUjiente Tacos
My favorite drink to make is… I would have to say our JapanKnees Bees. It’s our spin on the classic Bee’s Knees. Ours is made with Japanese whiskey, fresh lemon juice and our house-made hopped honey. Simple, yet absolutely delicious.
I’d most like to mix a drink for… Larry Fitzgerald…hopefully while playing a round of golf together!
If I could have one superpower while working, it’d be… telekinesis.
If I were a flavor, I’d be… spicy…anything spicy! Preferably a Carolina Reaper!
My biggest bartending fail… slicing my finger open during service on a busy night.
My top drink and food recommendation to guests is… sparkling wine with ceviche. I also have to go with a Hazy IPA from Wren House or Tombstone with our crunchy beef taco.
When I’m not working, I enjoy sipping on… a nice cask strength bourbon on the rocks with sparkling water.
My favorite place in town for drinks is… That is a tough one as there are so many great places and bartenders in Phoenix now. Depending on my mood, I would have to go with either UnderTow or Platform 18.
