I am working at Artesian in The Langham London
In my career, I have worked as a sommelier, restaurant manager, beverage manager, and of course as a bartender. As much as I like all the other roles, bartenders are the real artists of the industry, which I believe also impact our lifestyle, both positively and negatively, as artists are very sensitive and emotional people.
As I am getting wiser, I am starting to enjoy Dry Gin Martinis more and more, 6 to 1 with a dash of bitters and lemon zest.
Stepping in a ring with pro-wrestlers in Mexico City during Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail competition in 2018, while my fellow bartenders were hyping my inner superhero. I believe it still counts as a Bartender Moment!
It really depends on my mood and even more, on my wife’s mood. You could find me in a good old-fashioned pub with a pint of Guinness and comfort food, as well as questing for new culinary or cocktail destinations.
I would probably still be working in fashion. Not that many people know, but straight out of high school I worked for in a tailors shop for two years back in Italy, where I learned all about men suits and I had my first glimpse of guest service.
Tough to say but I will probably go with Macallan 30 years
A bowl of Carbonara with pecorino cheese, egg yolks and guanciale. High in carbs, protein, salt and fat will revive me even in the worst of the mornings!!
I would call it the Most Wanted Highball: Amontillado Sherry, Tomato Water Cordial. Saline solution and Soda. Every bartender dream!!
