Hello, I'm Orlando.
Former Junior Advisor for high networth clients in a bank. Wanted to learn something where I can use my communicative skills! Love Bartending and would like to work as bartender! Also WFA member.
I focus on experiencing self made cocktails at home. I built my own little bar and go from Classic Cocktails and riffs of them to own creations. I like to make Syrups and other igredients, like Falernum, shrubs or Infused Spirits. i'm a reader of PUNCH! and Imbibe and like to watch different Youtubers like Steve the Bartender, the educated barfly or how to drink, to name some of them. At EBS and mainly in Mexico at Oasis Beach Club in Manzanillo I learned the hard work as bartender. Preparing garnishes, juicing kilos of limes and oranges, fill the coolers with beer and being on full adrenalin when happy hours reached their peek. Often improvising and more important everyday learning new skills, from splitting coconuts to cleaning the fridges and freezers. My hardest challenge was to keep up with the busy service people, speaking mostly very few words in spanish I've never heard of. At the same time this motivated me to learn more and show them, I cannot live up to their expectations of an efficient barman.
