WFExFriends with Alessandro Palazzi / Instagram Live
In this episode, which was broadcast on Instagram Live, we speak with bartending royalty in the form of Alessandro Palazzi from the famous Dukes Bar in London. Watch as we talk about how Alessandro got in to the bar world in the 1970s, the high and lows of his career, a bit of history about Dukes and some tips for new bartenders.
We also talk about his love of whisky and Islay, classic whisky cocktails and then attempt to make one of his favourite cocktails together - the Manhattan - using what we have to hand at home. Technology let us down a bit here, but hopefully you can still enjoy and follow.
