Hello! I’m a bar and beverage consultant based out of New York City but have worked all around the world. My obsessive attention to detail when creating my cocktail recipes have transferred over into my photos and have been getting lots of attention on social media by brands, bars, bartenders, cocktail enthusiasts, and foodies. Would love to collaborate here with anyone of similar interests.

Felt like we were on the TITANIC!! Big shout out to @cathedralenewyork @moethennessy and @jpnyc24 for the 35th anniversary of Babette’s Feast which was an Oscar winning movie about a bad ass woman focused on the purity and deliciousness of the ingredients we put into meals. 🙌🏼 As Wikipedia describes… The ingredients are plentiful, sumptuous and exotic, and their arrival causes much consternation and discussion among the villagers.

My grandmother’s cocktail fountain. It was used to serve whiskey sours during parties that my grandma hosted at her catering hall… It’s over 50 years old!! This baby came out of storage this week and is still flowing strong. Couldn’t be more proud to celebrate the entrepreneurial women in my family at this special Women’s History Month celebration at @pariscafeny featuring the female favorite, @chambordliqueur #womenshistorymonth . . This cocktail is called Coco Chanel and is made with equal parts Chambord, Diplomatico Reserva, and a double steeped earl gray tea, with a touch of vanilla and rose water. . @diplomaticorum

Cheers to International Womxn’s Day! In spirit, I decided to mix-up a little martini combining 3 fierce female founded brands💕if you haven’t heard of them yet, it’s about time you do! Hope you enjoy!! Shades of Pink “Even though we’re all Womxn, we’re all a little different.” 1 oz Doña Vega Espadin 1.5 oz Matchbook Day Trip Strawberry Amaro .75 oz fresh ruby red grapefruit Mezsal Hibiscus Mole salt rim Directions: Start by salting a coupe or martini glass and set aside. In a mixing glass, add the remining ingredients along with some ice and stir well. Strain into the salted glass and enjoy! Image photo credit: Deena Sayers, @cocktails4breakfast Doña Vega is a mezcal spirit that is owned, operated, and produced by women. Founded by Sonya Vega and the palenque being owned and operated by Hortensia Hernández Martínez and her two daughters. Matchbook is a bespoke distillery on Long Island, the first of its kind in the US, owned and operated by Leslie Merinoff. Matchbook offers dozens of unique and delicious spirits that champion agriculture, anthropology, tradition and science. Mezsal Salts, founded by Bar and Beverage Consultant Deena Sayers, makes salts specifically for agave spirits, to compliment them with softer, enhancing flavors that make drinking an adventure, and not a task.

Roses are red, violets are blue, I’m prepped for Valentine’s Day, Are you? If you’re like me and prefer to avoid crowded social scenes then I’ve got you covered! I partnered up with Chambord to curate a special evening at home filled with aphrodisiacs and that signature black raspberry flavor. After all, love does go through the stomach 😉 #cocktaillovers @chambordliqueur

Dear Summer, Thank you for letting the sun shine through for one last kiss before the years end. On that note, I think we have time for one more bottle of rose, you in?

Happy National mezcal day!! My favorite way to enjoy mezcal is on a sunny beach, with a plate of @mezsal_salts, fresh fruit and cacao. I guess you can call it my little mezcal picnic 😍 How do you like your mezcal? @mezcaldonavega

Drinks By Deena at the gorgeous @parklanenewyork Wish I had the time to take more photos! One of the most extravagant weddings I’ve ever helped to produce… with cocktail stations from every top restaurant in NYC and the top recording Indian band performing live for the first dance 💃🏼 🥂

All gold everything! When creating a cocktail this damn fancy it was obvious that I had to paint my pinky to match 💅🏼 Yamazaki 12 year( yes that’s right!!! Yamazaki 12 not only in stock but in our cocktail 🤭) burnt sugar, 20 year Pedro Ximenez sherry, pimento bitters, served with a crystal clear ice sphere and edible 24 carat gold flakes. Only the best for you 😘 Now on the menu at @thestandnyc @yamazakidistillery @bodegastradicion @kingcocktl

Cheers, New York! To-go drinks are going to be permanently legal!!! Another small win for the bar and restaurant industry 🥂Thank you @govkathyhochul 🙏🏼

Taking notes on how the Ancient Egyptians mixed their beverages… circa 3150 BC. Looks as if grapes and barley have been trending ingredients for quite some time now. #timeless 🍺✨🍷#drinklikeanegyptian

Poolside with Deena: How to make a cocktail while traveling abroad. Clarification #1: not all bartenders in foreign countries shouldn’t be trusted. (Just some) #2: all bartenders in any given country should never be generalized. #3: @mulberryprojectpopup bartenders are the exception to all the rules! . I’m just a cocktail snob and don’t like to take chance (on my drinks) 💅🏼 #egyptiantequila

Whats in between summer and winter? No… it’s not Fall, or Spring. It’s frozen mulled wine season 😆Made with @drinkcanvino Cabernet Sauvignon, @martellusa , fresh ginger, orange, honey and @bittermens tiki bitters
