What was your favorite and least favorite drinks to make as a bartender?

 

Good question!

fav: Old Fashioned.

Beautiful drink, beautiful ritual. Classic cocktails need the most creativity. Choosing the right bourbon (or even rye), executing the cooling nicely, experimenting with the amounts of acids and sugar, playing with it's garnish. Needs competence to figure out how a certain guest likes it.

least fav: Espresso Martini

Has to be individually shaked, and usually 10 is ordered. Coffe is needed in it which is sometimes hard in a bar that has a separate cafeteria. Makes such a mess.
