If you are lucky enough to visit No 11 Pimlico Road or No 32 The Old Town, you may run into this guy. Cocktail Mastermind, Elvis, will cater to your every alcoholic love and create a concoction that will blow your mind. This cocktail will be on your mind for a while, until you visit again and treat yourself to another cocktail, whether it’s the same one or something new. We met up with Elvis to find out more about the mastermind.

TCT: What is the most unusual cocktail request you’ve had?

There was a strange request once for gin with milk at No.11. Similar to a classic Ramos Gin Fizz, egg white, double cream, milk, lemon juice, gin & soda. Slightly strange, but actually quite tasty.

TCT: What advice would you give to someone who was trying to break into the bar industry?

Really, it’s just the same as with any career: be enthusiastic to learn, keen to get stuck in, and get knowledge of the products you are working with.

TCT: What’s next in your career?

I would love to be able to compete in Global Cocktail competitions, travel around the world!

TCT: What advice would you give your younger self?

I started pretty young anyway – as soon as I was legal at 18, I had my first bar job –, but I guess just to pick myself up and get on with things whenever you get a knock back.

TCT: If you could bring three things to a deserted island, what would they be?

Doorly’s Rum, Lime & Sugar!

TCT: How would you describe your cocktails in 80 characters?

Cocktails with character, fresh ingredients, healthy but tasty, and made with love.
