About me

I’m Amy Traynor, a New Hampshire-based photographer, cocktail designer and forager of wild edibles with a love of organic ingredients and a propensity for creating moody imagery.

My background in fine art and my interest in herbs and medicinal plants intersected when I began learning about spirits and crafting my own variations of classic cocktails. I started Moody Mixologist in 2018 as a way to document my recipes, experiments, and wild garnishes.

Moody Mixologist is a collection of original and classic cocktail recipes, tutorials, and photography focused on sharing the beauty of botanical ingredients and exploring unusual syrups, infusions, and techniques. I enjoy sharing creative, simple, and accessible cocktails that anyone can enjoy, no matter the size of your home bar or skill level.
