Cocktail: Bitter Sour Lips | Bartender: Hemstone Onsare

Some drinks leave a sour taste in your mouth. And that can be a good thing. Drinking a citric acid-based drink at a fancy cocktail joint gave me a nervous feeling, as if Ashton Kutcher might lunge out of the freezer at any moment to announce I’d been punk’d by something made from the same stuff as powdered lemonade.

I am a mixologist by profession. From a very young age I loved fruit juices which were being blended by my dad who is a hotelier. I used to tell my dad that one day I will be a Barman but he convinced me to be a Chef instead. Most mixologists start their careers as bar backs, then climb the ranks to the bartender, before they get the honorary title of mixologist – the inventor of crazy drinks.
