About Eric “ET” Tecosky  *Jack Daniel’s Brand Ambassador  *Dirty Sue Founder/Owner

ET has spent years mixing drinks at some of Los Angeles' most famous – and in some cases, infamous – watering holes - most recently, Jones Hollywood. ET’s been featured in countless local and national press for his cocktails and innovations and as he likes to say, “Everything I learned behind bars has helped shape where I am right now - and I am grateful for it."

ET was the first to bottle premium olive juice for dirty martinis - Dirty Sue. What started as a pocketful of tips and an idea has grown into national distribution while still remaining to be the best reviewed product of its kind on the market. He has now added a line of hand stuffed olives and a bloody mary mix is in the works.

He is also the Brand Ambassador for Jack Daniel’s - a whiskey he has always loved - from what’s in the bottle to what it represents in the world. He gets to travel the country telling stories about what Frank Sinatra called “The Nectar of the Gods.” The only thing better than that would have been able to share a drink with the man himself...
