HEY BARTENDER — Meet Kimberly (Kimmi) Shuebrook

I am a Bartender at  Micelis Restaurant in Matlacha

I have been a bartender here since June of 2014

I started Bartending at Hustlers Pool Hall on Memorial Day of 2010, so a little over 7 years ago.

I am originally from: I wasn’t born in Florida but I have lived in Cape Coral for the majority of my life.

Favorite thing about my job?  My favorite thing about bartending is making someone’s day better than it was when they came in. You can really turn a person’s day around by making them something special, or giving them a good conversation, sharing a laugh with them. Nothing makes my day like watching someone leave in a much better mood than when they came in.

Meet any Famous people on the job?  I have not. 

My Favorite Drink to Make (name):  I like making Margaritas.

What’s the Recipe for that drink?  The recipe I prefer to use starts with an ounce and a half of Jose Cuervo, a half ounce of triple sec, a squeeze of lime, a squeeze of orange, about five ounces of sour mix and a splash of orange juice. Shake in a tumbler, strain and pour over ice.

What’s your favorite drink to consume? I’m very much a beer girl, lager preferably.

Anything else?   Margaritas are my go to mix drink, probably why they’re my favorite drink to make. And I really like anything that has to do with coffee, Patron Café, Spark Plug shots…mmmm.
