SpaceX launch: SpaceX vision goes well beyond Space Station
PREVIOUS REPORT: This piece looks at the feat SpaceX achieved in May 2020, but explores why that wasn't the ultimate prize the company was eyeing.

BOCA CHICA, Texas -- Can you mix a mean margarita? Are you capable of slinging a superb Aperol spritz? If so, Elon Musk wants you to become a "spaceport mixologist."

Musk's SpaceX, which builds and launches rockets, is hiring a "passionate, experienced" mixologist for its "spaceport" near Brownsville. The ideal candidate possesses at least two years of "superior" mixology experience at resorts, bars, and full-service restaurants, including the ability to pair drinks with themed menus.

Among other duties, the mixologist will prepare drinks, including handcrafted cocktails, and will ensure "consistency and compliance with the restaurant's recipes, portioning, and waste control guidelines."
