Currently working at Hacha Agaveria in Dalston.
Luxury tequila, mezcal and agave spirits will be the most popular spirit for cocktails within the next three years in London. Don’t ask me to name my source for this info...it’s just an educated guess!
Is it wrong to say something I’ve created? If you can allow me to be self indulgent then I would say the Mirror Margarita we serve at Hacha. Other than that, I would say a well made Toreador.
I once made cocktails for a princess (obviously I can’t say who) at her birthday party and it’s fair to say she really enjoyed the cocktails I made for her. Later in the night she came back to me a little tipsy and I noticed she was walking with a little limp as she got closer to me, she then looked at me and said, "Deano, you haven’t seen my shoe anywhere, have you?"
"No, I’m so sorry princess....I haven’t." I started thinking if I find that shoe, could this be my moment like in Cinderella...? It wasn’t! It was, however, the best party I ever worked at.
You will find me with my fiancé and business partner, Emma Murphy, on the sofa watching Netflix.
I would be winning in Formula 1 or playing football at Villa Park for Aston Villa.
A little genie that pops out for a chat every now and again to keep me company while we sip on fresh coconut water.
Homemade smoothie of hazelnut milk, spinach, pear and oats. Never fails.
I’d make a Champagne Cocktail using Don Julio Real and Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades Brut Gold Champagne.
