How To Set The Bar Very High

How To Set The Bar Very High

Could you imagine getting a job in one of the most iconic bars in the world from an advert on Gumtree, the global classifieds ads website? Our guest did and it kick-started a career in the industry that would take her all over the world. 

Rebekkah Dooley took that first job and never looked back – creating award-winning cocktail menus for London bar Callooh Callay,  moving to New York to work at The Dead Rabbit and now back to London. As well as working with The Umbrella Project, she has launched Discard, a new drinks magazine. She’s here today to tell us how that first experience at Milk & Honey set the bar very high!

On this episode, you’ll discover:

  • How she found her first job
  • Her Tales of the Cocktail award-winning menu
  • Rebekkah’s advice for the home bartender
  • Rebekkah’s secret for a luscious Espresso Martini
