Kelly Sparks of Queen Bee Mixology here! While mixology is not my full-time job, it is my full-time love. You see, in addition to being the mastermind behind @QueenBeeMixology, I am also the Founder and CEO of VMG Studios, a multi-Emmy award winning hybrid creative marketing agency and video production studio. This set-up often means I am a busy executive by day, and a DIY bartender by night. I pour my whole creative heart into every Queen Bee recipe, photo shoot, and how-to video in hopes of helping every member of my audience discover their own inner mixologist. I am a self-taught, do-it-yourself kind of gal who has relied on Google to help me learn the perfect shaking, stirring, and garnishing techniques. My work on Queen Bee Mixology is all about making the journey to amazing cocktails accessible to everyone. When I’m not hard at work, I can be found sipping a delicious cocktail with my husband and business partner, Mark, enjoying a fantastic take-out meal at home, or trying to keep up with my six rambunctious grandkids.

PUMPKIN SPICE MUDSLIDE 🍨⁠ Why settle for the same old, same old when you can mix things up with a Pumpkin Spice Mudslide? This twist on the classic mudslide is sprinkled with a dash of spice that'll "slide" you right into the spirit of the season. ⁠ ⁠ I have to say, my favorite aspect of this recipe has to be the whipped cream. It adds a touch of decadence that is essential when satisfying that sweet tooth. The Pumpkin Spice Mudslide is sure to be a new hit!⁠ ⁠ Cheers! 🥂⁠⠀⁠ ⁠ ⁠👑 🐝 Original Content @Queenbeemixology⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #cocktails #cocktailrecipe #cocktail #pumpkinspice #pumpkinspicecocktail #vodka #vodkacocktail #mudslidecocktail #vodkacocktails #vodkalovers #dessert #dessertcocktail #cheers #bartenders #kahlua #coffee #cafe #cocktailcreation #garnish #cocktaillovers #cocktailcommunity #recipe #recipes #drinkrecipes #fall #seasonalcocktails
