Cocktails, Dog Training and Dog Rescue?!! Is there a better trio? 

Hey, Hello! We are so happy you found us! My name is Dani White and I am a Mixologist and Dog Trainer located in Rochester, MN. I bet you're wondering how this all came about and how this works. I have many cocktail mixes (for the hoomans) all inspired by different dog breeds. I also am opening a dog rescue in late 2022 called Because of Bonsai that is funded by a portion of each cocktail mix sold which you will soon find in various retail locations around Minnesota. My good friend and colleague Jessi Smidt KPA CVT and I have joined forces and have opened a new dog training business together which is called Brilliant Pups Dog Training. We offer a calm low stress environment for your pup to learn, play, and train. So come, sit and stay and read about all of the awesome things we have to offer. 

We can't wait to meet you and your brilliant pup! 



Our Pooch inspired Cocktail mixes took over the Rochester community in 2021 and are going into liquor stores THIS YEAR! I know a lot of you are having withdrawals! They will be available soon! Connect with us at for any questions about these mixers or any availability.

Bonsai is a dog that Dani found in the middle of the street in Mexico on the 4th of July in 2021. Bonsai was the inspiration for the Dog Rescue that is opening this year.
