What a few months we’ve had. Most of the world has been stuck inside while bars and restaurants have had to close, often never to reopen. Since every bar I love has been shut, I’ve had to make myself a cocktail or two or many. Thank goodness I had advice from the world’s best – the Lush Life family.
I’ve begun asking my guests a few top tips, so we home bartenders can make a proper drink. For today’s show, I have compiled them all into one episode to send you off on your own, while Lush Life takes a short break for the rest of the summer.
Every cocktail I make is in reverence to my Lush Life family and I toast to the time when I can see them again.
We’re building today’s episode, beginning with a shot of Denis Broci, the Manager of all the Bars at Claridge’s Hotel in London, and then topping it up with Rebekkah Dooley, Daniyel Jones, Jack Sotti, Sasha Filimonov, Vasilis Kyritsis, Johnny Livanos, Elliot Ball, and Lauren Mote!
On today’s episode, you’ll discover:
- Why ice is so important
- What’s with garnish
- Why gin should always be kept in the freezer
- What cocktail I could drink everyday
Please find the transcript of this episode here. Transcripts of all episodes can be found here.
