Would you drink a cocktail made with ants? Maybe not, unless it was mixed by our guest today. His creations have won him that elusive title of a Diageo World Class UK Bartender of the year. Today we find out what led him to select a picnic pest as a potable ingredient.
Ali Reynolds’ first love may have been sports, but after graduating from university, his job as bartender kept him inside many a basement establishment. His competitive spirit never wavered and led him to win the Oscar of the drinking world: Diageo World Class UK Bartender in 2015.
Now as brand ambassador for Diageo Reserve, he is more likely to be found upstairs rather than downstairs. Although he might be slinging fewer Blue Blazers behind a bar, Ali’s innate nature as a competitor and creator will show him to be a leader in whatever position he’s playing.
FYI: Don’t be confused! This video is branded with my old logo, Best Sips Worldwide. Just ignore it and watch the amazing cocktail making 😉
