our roots

Tonic and Lime is the brain child of our founder, Amber Jaeger. Recognizing that a boutique bartending company was needed in Northern Michigan, Amber began working with a national franchise in 2012. After attending numerous events with bad bar service, uninspired cocktails and so so attitudes by bartending staff, Amber knew she had found her calling. A favorite cocktail diva of her friends at parties, she always ended up behind the bar getting the party started. Serving clients at weddings, corporate events, birthdays and more, Amber worked the event circuit all over Northern Michigan - developing  both a following and a holistic understanding of this growing industry and the keys to success for a great event. After splitting her time between Denver and Traverse City, MI, she took the plunge in 2014 and moved back to Northern Michigan full time to pursue her business. As her reputation with wedding planners and popular regional venues continued to positively grow, she knew she wanted to reshape her business into something entirely her own. Tonic & Lime was born in 2017!  Bringing knowledge, creativity and expertise in cocktail concoctions, seamless bartending service, liquor ordering, creativity, flexibility, professionalism and stocking knowledge as well as EVERYTHING that you will forget to think about, this veteran event bartender has you covered. She has also trained an army of team members to help her deliver quality bartending service for any event you throw her way. They are held to the same high standards to which Amber holds herself. You will not be disappointed in all that Tonic & Lime delivers.
