I was born and bred in London, but lived in Cambridge for 5 years .
I have been working in a flair bar called "Aquum" for the past 3 years, but have previously worked in many places including "Shoreditch House", "The Hide" and "Dirty Martini" in London.
Aside from the places I have worked, I love "The NightJar" for pure mixo flamboyance and "Mahiki" and "Roadhouse" for the party!
My favourite drink has always changed, but at the moment I particularly enjoy a good vic Trader Mai Tai.
Well I get up and dance on the bar every weekend... generally with a couple of customers if I can persuade them ...does that count?
I'm working on it?
I have always dreamt of having my own bar one day. Meanwhile, I just want to keep on enjoying making delicious drinks. I love developing new cocktail menu's and I'm a part time magician as well….
Ok so the best is by my boss Sophie: 'um…. polar bear…… sorry that's all I know that will break the ice!' And the worst has to be simply 'you'll do'.
A woodchuck would chop 7 if a woodchuck could chop wood!
My BarChick cocktail would be something yummy involving Angostura 1824 or Eldorado 12. Probably an old fashioned style with some chocolaty bitters.
I like my Martini very dry, with Lillet Blanc, Tanqueray No.10 and a grapefruit twist. Yum yum.
Before I discovered the pleasures of mixing and tossing I dreamt of being a video games tester : )
