Johnny Caldwell and Taneka Reaves

Join Taneka and Johnny, Charleston’s beloved Cocktail Bandits, for a very special tequila and rum based cocktail workshop. Learn about the origins of rum in Charleston’s oldest ports.

The full-time Charleston Ambassadors met as Freshmen at the College of Charleston. Now, as the Cocktail Bandits, they promote female empowerment through advocacy for the food and beverage community from a feminine, urban perspective. The curly ladies who talk cocktails daily, educate and entertain their growing blog audience by sharing original cocktail recipes, promoting the craftsmanship of other bar professionals and sharing their experiences at foodie events all around the Holy City and beyond.

Johnny and Taneka have hosted sold-out events at Charleston Food & Wine Festival, Atlanta Food & Wine Festival and Euphoria Greenville Food, Wine & Music Festival. The duo have also been featured on Sirius XM Radio online, NBC BLK online, Metro UK online, Style Me Pretty Online, Cuisine Noir Magazine, National PBS ‘Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking TV’, and ESSENCE Magazine.

All Cocktail Bandits Workshops will be held at the Captain James Missroon House, 40 East Bay St. 21 and up. Tickets required and space is limited. Light snacks will be available. This event series is part of 76th Annual Festival of Houses and Gardens. Tickets go on sale November 1.
