What was the inspiration for this cocktail? The tropical island flavors that all of Captain Morgan’s products showcase.
What is your favorite Captain Morgan Cocktail? The Captain Gimlet – Captain Morgan OSR and Lime Juice.
What is the most important tool a bartender must have? Being able to think on your feet. But second would be my thumbs.
What advice would you give someone who wanted to be a bartender? Start young and bust your ass. Also, learn how to be a professional, responsible drinker.
Tell us one thing about bartending that we might not already know? The customer is often wrong.
How do you deal with overly intoxicated consumers? This is not a situation that arises often in my bar as we are taught how to be responsible servers. Should the situation arise I would be polite, offer them water, and call them a cab. Nothing is more important than getting them home safely.
