Name: Mike Dorsey
Hometown: Kailua, Hawaii
Birthday: April 4
Where You Bartend: Beverage Director at Aliante Casino
How Many Years Bartending: 14
Favorite Cocktail: I’m normally a beer kind of guy. But I’ve been on a ginger kick recently, so I’d have to say the Moscow Mule: Vodka, fresh lime and ginger beer.
Favorite Beer: Abita Turbodog
Favorite Shot: Can’t go wrong with an ice-cold Jägermeister
Favorite Bar In The World To Have A Drink: The Mining Co. Tavern. Over the years, I’ve come to enjoy a smaller, chill place with a juke box, some pool tables, good food and friendly bartenders. It’s my “Cheers” bar.
Mike’s Own Signature Cocktail: Peach Jalapeño Martini
Infuse one bottle of Smirnoff Peach vodka with two sliced jalapeños for two days. Filter out the peppers with a coffee filter and funnel.
Mix 2 ounces of infused vodka, 1 ounce of fresh lime juice, 2 ounces of white cranberry juice and 1/4 ounce of simple syrup. Shake and strain into a martini glass, garnish with a fresh jalapeño slice. Sip and enjoy!
