Where are you from?
Perigueux, South of France
Where do you/have you worked?
Peacock Alley Bar at London Syon Park, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel
How do you like your Martini?
Not a fan of Martini, don’t really drink Gin and wouldn’t mix my vodka. If it had to be a Martini it would need to be very wet like the Prudence (created in homage of the Sipsmith distillery): Sipsmith London Dry Gin, Lillet Blanc, fresh lemon juice, fresh basil leaves.
Vodka on the rocks! The Vodka I will drink until my legs give away will have to be Sipsmith Barley Vodka. A very nice local product, small batch, high quality and fun people. If we want a cocktail, probably a nice Caipiroska. I told you… VODKA ON THE ROCKS…
Bad ass barman/Rock n Roll moment?
Yeah, I am way too sweet to do bad ass.
Ever done it on a bar?
Is that not against Health & Safety?!
What's next for you?
Go back up to the Bar to check on my guests and probably a double espresso too…
Best/worst chat up lines you've heard at a bar?
The best I have heard was ‘Hi, I’m Mr. Right. Someone said you were looking for me.’ The worst was ‘grab your coat, you’ve pulled’ – couldn’t believe the swagger this guy came out with – brave. (She didn’t go by the way)
What did you want to be as a kid?
I wanted to be a fighter pilot only because my brother was always watching JAG and I had a huge crush on Rabb :)
Tell us a secret or something we don't know?
How about you tell me something you didn’t know…
If you were to make a barchick cocktail, what would you put in it?
Well I believe Tats would like to get another M8T:
Elements 8 Spiced Rum,
vanilla apple sauce,
cinnamon & clove syrup,
Merlet Creme de Mure,
apple & vanilla tea, fresh lime juice.
Shaken and served straight up or stirred with hot tea and served as a hot toddy with a stick of Cinnamon :)
