Lauren managed to impress all the judges of the Drink Masters and received the title of the winner, but that does not indicate her journey to being a smooth one. Lauren faced suspicions from the judges in the first episode that she might be hiding her genuine talent, saving it for the last, and isn’t fully involved in the competition. Lauren’s determination towards the show soon subsided all the doubts the judges had against her. She made it to the end despite the pressure; she did not back out. She collected herself right from episode two and faced all the challenges. Meanwhile, she kept enhancing her skills and learning from the other contestants. Her perfection had the judges so impressed that the homegirl was directly transferred to the finale.

Lauren is very popular for OLIPOP’s Ginger Lemon soda, Seedlip Spice, and Rhubarb Tea. The drink has thirst-quenching, and refreshing Grove Spritz attributes. Her booze-less drinks are time sippers, unlike boozy drinks, which pack a punch. The drink is served in a bulbed glass with the garnishing of orange wheels. Her second spirit-free beverage has bright and playful features, just like classic ice cream floats. The drink is built with OLIPOP’s Strawberry Vanilla soda and the lime ring of Jeni’s Strawberry ice cream. The drink tastes cool and is a sweet tooth treat. The drink is served in a hurricane glass and garnished with Maraschino cherries.
