About Eric “ET” Tecosky

Eric Tecosky is based in Los Angeles and is the founder and owner of Dirty Sue Premium Olive Juice.

Since the company’s founding, the product line has expanded to include cocktail garnishes like hand-stuffed Wisconsin bleu cheese, garlic and feta olives; pepperoncini and jumbo cocktail onions, all of which are available in thousands of bars and liquor stores from coast to coast.

He has a number of original cocktails to his credit, the most famous of which is the Jäegermeister-based “Surfer on Acid” which can be ordered in just about any bar in the US.
