Cocktail: The Cottage 10 | Bartender: Leo Fernandes

I created this cocktail with fellow co-worker Matt Bourgard at the Mockingbird, The Cottage 10, using Rittenhouse Overproof Rye. You may or may not have heard the term ‘A New York 5 is a cottage 10’ and I’m just going to leave it at that… Trust me this one’s a beaut.

I'm absolutely in love with our craft, it's my passion. I love researching and reading all that I can about the art of mixology. I have built great fulfilling relationships with other bartenders locally and abroad sharing ideas and inspirations. I always love to try something new and being able to perform in front of guests, the smiles and genuine involvement and interactions and teaching them something about what they are drinking. It's such a high and drives me to want to do this every day. Follow me on Instagram.
