The Post takes a peek at the paychecks of New York’s “hidden rich people” (the professions you wouldn’t think make people as much money as they do), and one of them is a mixologist — specifically, Employees Only partner Dushan Zaric. At age 39, his salary is between $150,000 and $200,000 a year, and he makes up to $800 a night tending bar. (And that’s not even including income from his pick-up guide, You Didn’t Hear it From Us). So, next time you order a Ginger Smash, don’t feel too guilty if you skimp on the tip.
