Welcome to Just Shake or Stir!

Allow Me To Introduce Myself!

Hello, Cocktail Lovers!

Thank you for showing interest in my website and want to find more about Just Shake or Stir!

My name is Georgi Petrov, a professional bartender, mixologist and cocktail consultant.
I start my bartender career in 1995 in a small bar and dinner with live music. At this time I never thought I’d be doing it for all these years.

and I was a member of the Bulgarian Bar Association (BBA). While competing and being involved more deeply into the industry, I established myself as one of the top bartenders in the country.

During my bartender career in Bulgaria, I worked with many brands as consultant and train many bartenders. We had a great time, and life was beautiful, but I needed a change.

Contact Just Shake or Stir

In 2006 I stopped everything and joined a Cruise Ship as a bartender to explore the world, meet new people and find a new adventure.

I made new friends for life and visited incredible places around the world. In 2009 I moved officially to the UK, and in 2011 the cruising life came to its end. After a few years on land, settling down with my family, I am back to one thing I genuinely love. And this is not other, but creating cocktails, mixology, consulting and serving delicious drinks.

In September 2018, I started Just Shake or Stir as an Instagram hobby to share my knowledge, passion and love for cocktails. At this point, I didn’t know or expect to become so popular so quickly.


  • With many semi-finals and finals on cocktail competitions. I compete for UKBG, Giffard Liqueurs, Chase Distillery, Amaro Montenegro, Angostura, Cut Rum, to name a few.
  • Diageo WORLD CLASS Competition – one of the Top 100 UK bartenders
  • My cocktail MOON RISING created for Russian Standard Vodka won an official cocktail for THE BLUE MOON FESTIVAL.

Throughout 2019 I start working with many companies, consulting, creating cocktails and shot product photography. Now, the next step is to put all together and present it as videos fo my YouTube channel.

The plans are big for 2020. Will be concentrating on filming, teaching and starting series were (maybe a book) introducing distilleries, products and brands. The idea is to add more about their history and behind the scenes.
