I am currently at Aviary Rooftop Bar now but before was at Peacock Alley Bar at London Syon Park, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

Vodka on the rocks! The Vodka I will drink until my legs give away will have to be Sipsmith Barley Vodka. A very nice local product, small batch, high quality and fun people. If we want a cocktail, probably a nice Caipiroska. I told you... VODKA ON THE ROCKS...

Bad ass barman/rock n roll moment?

I am way too sweet to do bad ass.

Ever done it on a bar?

Is that not against Health & Safety?!

What's next for you?

Go back up to the Bar to check on my guests and probably a double espresso too...

Best/worst chat up lines you've heard at a bar?

The best I have heard was ‘Hi, I'm Mr. Right. Someone said you were looking for me.’ The worst was ‘grab your coat, you've pulled’ – couldn’t believe the swagger this guy came out with – brave. (She didn’t go by the way)

Tell us a secret or something we don't know?

How about you tell me something you didn’t know…

If you were to make a barchick cocktail, what would you put in it?

Well I believe Tats would like to get another M8T: Elements 8 Spiced Rum, vanilla apple sauce, cinnamon & clove syrup, Merlet Creme de Mure, Twinnings blackberry, apple & vanilla tea, fresh lime juice. Shaken and served straight up or stirred with hot tea and served as a hot toddy with a stick of Cinnamon :)

How do you like your Martini?

Not a fan of Martini, don’t really drink Gin and wouldn’t mix my vodka. If it had to be a Martini it would need to be very wet like the Prudence (created in homage of the Sipsmith distillery): Sipsmith London Dry Gin, Lillet Blanc, fresh lemon juice, fresh basil leaves.

What did you want to be as a kid?

I wanted to be a fighter pilot only because my brother was always watching JAG and I had a huge crush on Rabb :)
