Founded in 2010, Snake Oil Cocktail Company is Southern California’s preeminent beverage catering and consulting firm. We specialize in creating immersive full-service beverage experiences for select bars, special events and award-winning restaurants nationwide. Underlying our work is passion, and a deep-seated respect for the five fundamentals of culinary mixology: simplicity, seasonality, quality, creativity, and taste.

The magic is in the bottle. It’s an ode to the days of the traveling medicine shows, when Snake Oil salesman would ply their trade from a wagon stage and boast of the mysterious powers of their bottles of snake oil elixirs. All of our cocktails are made with the freshest ingredients, often hand pressed or juiced just prior to our events. We promote our mixes as a healthy tonic to vitalize and nourish while consuming alcohol.
