C'Lena Shumaker is the owner and operator of Liquid Loud Mixers, her signature drink company. Since she launched in 2014, she has grown so much as a brand! C'Lena started with one flavor, and now her company has twelve different flavors and a variety of sizes, Mango Madness, Killa Kiwi and Bangin' Berry just to name a few. Liquid Loud Mixers also offer homemade lemonades, non-alcoholic drink mixers, infused drinks, and much more! Before she started her business, C'Lena bartended for more than 10 years. While on the bar she perfected mixes and applied everything she learned to her business. "Everyone always ask me... Why the non alcoholic mixers?" The idea of the non alcoholic mixers is basically for your convenience! LLM gives customers a certain amount of mix, (depending on what size they order) and they can pair and pour the alcohol of their choice. That way, customers will have a consistent cocktail every single time. You literally pop the top, pour in what you're sipping on, shake and drink!! They taste great, are very versatile and will definitely have you ordering again and again. In the future, C'Lena hopes to expand her business in a few stores starting off and eventually want Liquid Loud to become a household name and a global brand! To order our signature mixers you can go online at www.shopliquidloud.com
