Casey Fox

Cocktail Caterer, Libacious in Knoxville United States

The child of a restaurant owner and sommelier, Casey learned from an early age the important role drinks play in fostering communion and celebration. Whether it’s red wine in Rioja, gin in London, or homemade mead from a roadside stand in the mountains of Montenegro, she loves exploring drinking cultures around the world. She's at various times been a bartender, a barista and an event coordinator. She also has a Master's Degree in Information Sciences, and works as the Fund Development Manager for the Knox County Public Library system. Casey has a particular affinity for pre-prohibition cocktails, possibly because she was born on the anniversary of the repeal of the Volstead Act.

Libacious, her cocktail catering business with partners Jesse Mayshark and Amanda Mohney, brings the experience of a craft cocktail bar to your private event. From custom cocktails tailored to your tastes to beverage consultation with our in-house wine and beer sommeliers, Libacious will craft the drink menu of your dreams and serve it in style.

Cuba With Love: The Tangled Tale of the Daiquiri

BY CASEY FOX
@ VOL 25 ON NOV 16, 2017

Casey talks about how one of the great joys of cocktail culture is learning the stories behind the many classic drinks in the canon. The Daiquiri is a drink that many people know in its modern incarnation as a frozen beverage served by the pitcher. But its
history is deep and complicated, entwined with Spanish colonial ambitions, American empire - building, and the complex experience of Cuba in the 20th century. By telling the tale of the Daiquiri, the founders of Libacious cocktail catering illustrate how much history can be contained in a single, delicious drink.
