RICHMOND, VA. — Mattias Hagglund takes over the CBS 6 Instagram account to show you what his world is like.
We can’t wait to see what he has in the mix for our Instagram followers. See, that was a pun, because Hagglund is a mixologist, a bartender, a libational architect, a liquids lord – a cocktail king.
He can be found Tuesday through Sunday night making masterpieces behind the bar at the award-winning Heritage restaurant, which he co-owns. By daytime, he’s a proud husband and new dad.
Mattias has been featured several times in national media like NYTimes and CNN, for his cocktails, and was listed recently in Style Weekly’s “Best of” edition, as one of Richmond’s premier mixologists.
Anyhow, we look forward to him taking you through a day in his life.
Maybe you can ask him what his favorite cocktail is or to share a recipe or two with you to try at home.
We plan to do this every Tuesday this summer, and at the end, you vote for who hosted the best takeover day. Then we will donate $200 to the winner’s chosen charity. Mattias is hoping he wins so he can help the Ronald McDonald House.
Hey #rva my name is Mattias Hagglund. I own @heritagerva with my sister Emilia and my bro-in law @jsparatta. Most nights I can be found behind the bar, or as @hagglundmn here on Instagram. Today I'm taking over CBS6's Instagram to show my typical day in this awesome city. If you like my feed today you'll be able to vote for it online, and hopefully help a charity I've chosen (@rmhcrichmond) win $$$. This is my morning snuggle routine with my 5 month old son Emerson. Probably the best part of my whole day. #cbs6takeovertuesday
Oh, and #sunflowers ! I love these. The North Side of #rva where we live has great soil and lots of light. I went nuts in the week when my baby was first born and while he and my wife were laying in I built giant raised beds all over our back yard. I guess I was determined to feed the family… #cbs6takeovertuesday
Now it's nap time for Emerson. He loves his @plumandsparrow Moses basket. Bonus this morning is that the timing of this nap means my wife @rachaelhagglund and I get to make #breakfast together! Omelet time! #cbs6takeovertuesday
Garden omelet with our own #tomatoes #pattypan #beans, @goatladydairy cheese, and eggs from @littlehouserva. With a healthy dose of @mikevacations #texasmike hot sauce he makes for @heritagerva #cbs6takeovertuesday #breakfast #rva
I had time for one last diaper change, and one final smile and giggle from Emerson. He makes it so hard to leave for work! Off to @heritagerva though… #cbs6takeovertuesday #babies #babiesofinstagram #clothdiapers
Here @heritagerva we have just gotten a couple deliveries today- from @victoryfarmsinc and @haashrooms Check out how amazing this all looks! #fresh #local #produce #rva #rvadine #mushrooms #tomatoes #squash #cbs6takeovertuesday
Sometimes you get shorted what you need for a private party. Fortunately for us @heritagerva there are amazing places to get help, like @thejeffersonhotel. There's worse things than visiting this amazing institution. So beautiful. #rva #rvadine #visitrichmond #cbs6takeovertuesday
Sample of tonight's dinner menu @heritagerva for the party we closed for. They wanted a 3 course menu, with a choice of entree and a healthy salad and dessert. No problem! Parties are fun! #rva #rvadine #cbs6takeovertuesday
All that goodness from @victoryfarmsinc will be turned into beautiful things like this @heritagerva panzanella salad! With #heirloomtomatoes charred #corn, feta, #arugula all from Victory #rva #rvadine #summer #cbs6takeovertuesday
@heritagerva we also love to serve using pieces made by one of our servers, who also happens to be a wonderful potter. She has been with us since day one. Check her out @marysmud #rva #rvadine She does commission work too! #cbs6takeovertuesday
Really nice to find out that one of your party guests is a regular @politesandiego and knows her stuff. She requested an army & navy cocktail from us, happy to make one @heritagerva #cbs6takeovertuesday
The crew @heritagerva had the party down, so I was able to head home a little early before Emerson goes to bed! This never happens! What a great surprise. #cbs6takeovertuesday #surprisedinner #lucky #lovemyfamily
Family dinner. I made some (hopefully not too overcooked- timing proteins with a baby is challenging) tilefish, penne with @haashrooms, asparagus, garlic and lemon, and sautéed broccolini. #windingdown #dinner #lovemyfamily #cbs6takeovertuesday
And now dinner has finished. It's way past the young man's bedtime, but it's been so nice that he has stayed up with me for this surprise night at home. #lovemyfamily #windingdown #lucky #cbs6takeovertuesday
Surprise dinner gets way better with surprise dessert! @rachaelhagglund made me peach pie! I have an allergy to most fresh fruit, so I can only have it when suffering through delicious things like this. #couldbeworse #pie #peaches #cbs6takeovertuesday
I'm sure as a bartender people probably expected more drinks. Here's one to end the evening. @willettdistillery family estate rye- an early batch of their own juice. 55.4%, and insanely good. I don't often get their whiskey in VA, but am always thankful when I do. Good night all, and thanks CBS 6 for letting me show what a day in my shoes is like. Normally you can find me at @hagglundmn or behind the bar in my restaurant, @heritagerva. Cheers #rva! #cbs6takeovertuesday #imout
