Did you miss the first round of Bar Shift? The jetsetting Liquor.com program, sponsored by BACARDÍ®, launched in early November and staged a bar-swap between two bartenders from very different cities.
In the first swap, Alex Renshaw of Chicago’s Drumbar flew south to shake at Miami’s Broken Shaker and Gui Jaroschy of the Broken Shaker headed north to step behind Drumbar. Want a taste of what went down behind the stick? Watch the video highlights below of Jaroschy’s shift at Drumbar and sneak a sip of his signature Bar Shift cocktail, the Sunshine State of Mind.
Jaroschy’s BACARDÍ® rum–based ’tail incorporated tokens from both cities, including a Miami-centric mix of citrus cordial and kaffir lime leaves, with local lemongrass and a marigold garnish plucked from Chicago’s own Millenium Park. Inspired by a day trip through his home state and enhanced by his experience in Chicago, this cocktail embodies the spirit of Bar Shift: to elevate bartenders across the country and inspire their craft over the course of their careers.
