World Cocktail Day; ANDREY BARTLETT

Thursday 13th May 2021 |

Andrey has been working in hospitality for more than three years now. During this time he has worked for both large high volume bars and smaller venues with a focus on innovative signature drinks.

In addition, Andrey has competed in multiple competitions and will be battling it out in the World Class Top 100 competition this year. 

Favourite cocktail: It’s hard to pick one as it depends on the occasion really. For longer evenings I would go for a mezcal negroni or a mezcal old fashioned. If I’m looking for a refreshing pick-me-up I would choose a 20th century cocktail. On any other occasion I always love a good highball.

Favourite spirit: I do love a good cognac, but also can’t resist a delicious agave spirit.

World cocktail day – Top Tips For Cocktail Perfection:

  • Follow the rule of 3 – Sweet, Sour, Bitter! That’s always a good balancing formula for a cocktail.
  • Good quality ice!!! Really important.
  • Don’t go too heavy on the alcohol, 50-60ml per drink is a good measure, more will unbalance the drink.

ABOUT THE TIPPLING HOUSE

The Tippling House is a late night bar with carefully curated modern cocktail menus and bar staff that are always happy to come up with something specially for the guest to ensure they have a good time. Founded in 2012, the subterranean venue charms with an Italo-style décor, cosy booths and tweed  fabric. Bartenders are passionate, knowledgeable, friendly and attentive with plenty of thought put into the menu and product selection. 

Proud to overthink every detail of their drinks list, they offer single cask and independently-bottled whiskies, contemporary gins and wines sourced from forgotten grapes and unsung regions.
