Several famous bartenders from around the world who are currently working from home have come together to create virtual cocktail, the Quarantine Margarita, to reinforce the self-isolation message in a light-hearted, uplifting way.
The bartenders responded to a call by Ansis Ancovs, a global cocktail champion and Rooster Rojo tequila global brand ambassador.
The video, which can be viewed here, shows the whole mixology process, with the bartenders preparing and passing the cocktail out of shot to each other.
Bartenders involved included Marek Posluszny from Poland; Mario Hofferer from Austria, Andris Reizenbergs from Latvia; Agnieszka Cieslar from Poland; Stefan Haneder from Austria; Vlodimir Buryanov from the USA; and Clinton Weir from Australia, amongst a few others.
Ansis said: “I’ve been communicating regularly with my industry brothers and sisters from all over the world during self-isolation.
“After about two weeks of work with bartenders from Australia, the USA, Mexico, Poland, Austria, Ukraine, Latvia and other countries, we made an uplifting video.
“The whole bartender community is currently forced to stay home, but that doesn’t stop the work we love. Masterclasses continue online as well as online bars; it is possible to adapt to everything so that after a while we can all look forward to meeting again in person.”
