Brad Johnson, aka Sluggo, aka Mysterioso, is a home mixologist specializing in interesting and sometimes whimsical twists on classic cocktail platforms. While Brad has worked as a professional bartender in years past, he is currently establishing his brand, Société Mysterieux, an underground cocktail society for like-minded enthusiasts of cocktail culture. We create our own recipes based on classic platforms using our own bitters, syrups, tonics and shrubs under the brand L’Apothicaire Mysterieux. Brad started tending bar in the late '80s in the mountains of Southern California. In a time when other folks were spinning bottles (not that there's anything wrong with that), Brad’s penchant was a bit more old school and classic, focusing more on how to properly make a fizz, perfecting a martini or studying the history of the Vieux Carré. When he is not obsessing over cocktail flavor profiles, he is playing bass with the band Midway, collaborating on hat, suit, and jacket designs, and working his day gig as Director of Acoustic Instruments and Guitar Accessories for the Guitar Center chain.
