Since my first day in hospitality I have loved making cocktails.
There is something magical about what you can create with a little bit of flair, quality ingredients and of course a little bit of theatre.
I enjoy creating bright, loud and vibrant cocktails to make the customers wow. As well as whipping up the old classics of course. I enjoy getting the team involved in making cocktails and developing their own knowledge.
One of my personal favourite cocktails has to be the New York sour! A twist on a recipe over 100 years old and originally created in Chicago. The drink incorporates Chambord (or red wine) to add a real depth and sweetness to the drink. When I am in a cocktail bar the New York Sour is certainly my drink of choice! Here’s a link on how to make the perfect New York Sour.
