Classy Cock­tails

Jamaica Gleaner - - NEWS - Tick­oya Joseph Gleaner Writer Davina Henry Staff Reporter

SOUNDS OF shak­ers and high­speed blenders cre­ated a band of their own, pro­duc­ing sweet mu­sic for the pa­trons at eater­ies par­tic­i­pat­ing in Restau­rant Week.

Bar­tenders were kept busy as there were dozens of or­ders of cock­tails to com­ple­ment and com­plete the din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

In­ter­est­ing to note was the fact that all bar­tenders had a spe­cial drink that they boasted was the best. They were all keen on get­ting the right amount of each in­gre­di­ent to en­hance the over­all prod­uct. Em­pha­sis was placed on pre­sen­ta­tion, and of­ten, per­sons were heard say­ing, “I’ll have that one”, not know­ing the name, but cap­ti­vated by the look of the mas­ter­pieces.

It's dou­ble trou­ble as bar­tender Al­lan Wolfe serves up Red­bones' sig­na­ture drink Blue's Lightning. Bar­tender Ty­rone Simp­son says choco­late syrup makes ev­ery­thing just right. Prac­tis­ing for their up-com­ing hon­ey­moon, Marlon shares dessert with Jus­tine. Ka­mar Sib­bles proudly shares his craft as he mixes a choco­late mar­tini at Bet­tino at the Ma­rina Vil­lage restau­rant in St Ann. The love­birds are all smiles af­ter re­ceiv­ing their com­pli­men­tary bot­tle of wine.
