Millie Tang

If you want to use your whisky for something a lil outrageous, Millie Tang is the person you need.
As the 2019 ALIA Bartender of the Year, Millie certainly knows her way around a liquor cabinet.
But what's even more impressive is her knack for whipping up Starward cocktails with the simplest ingredients.
Millie's got it all. Zingy citrusy coolers, caffeine-spiked concoctions or fresh minty mixes.
Get your freezer filled with ice. It's time to shake things up.
