Her foundation behind the bar began at P.D.T., where skills for progressive cocktail development were formed under the tutelage of Jim Meehan and his talented staff. She was then given entree into the freelance world, working for Pernod Ricard USA, Banks 5 Island Rum, and contributing to Cocktail menus in New York City, Brooklyn and Park City Utah. In the Summer of 2010, Lindsay signed on as Deputy Cocktail Editor for Food & Wine Magazine’s 2011 Cocktail Book, a highly esteemed annual publication.
