I like everything about bartending in general! :)What is your favourite drink to drink?That would be a classic Old Fashioned or a well-made Negroni. I really like simple classic cocktails made from good spirits.What is your favourite drink on Bistro Rex's new cocktail menu?That would be the Chocolate Walnut Old Fashioned.
