Electricdust is the brainchild of Mariena Boarini, one of the world’s most avant-garde mixologists, known throughout the globe for her whimsical use of the senses to create immersive cocktail experiences. It was born out of her fascination with the “The Science of Delicious”, sensates, and her love for experiential cocktails and meals.
The beverage scene in her native Las Vegas was revolutionized when she created the cocktail program at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and is currently resort mixologist for the Wynn & Encore Las Vegas, where she oversees 31 unique beverage programs.
She is the creator of countless recipe and beverage concepts, including the buzz button-garnished Verbena —the top-selling specialty cocktail in the City of Las Vegas with over ten million dollars in sales despite being absent from any menu— a recipe that has become a contemporary classic.
Electricdust creator Mariena Mercer Boarini was selected by Cheers Magazine as the recipient of their annual The Raising the Bar Award, given to an industry icon who has impacted on-premise beverage sales and service throughout their career.
