Bartender Made Cocktails

This article is made in collaboration with Donzai Sherpa, an amazing Bartender in Dubai.

The Cocktail that you are about to make is one of Donzai Sherpa’s Signature Fizz Cocktails, which she makes at The Crossing in Dubai.

Let’s Meet The Bartender!

“Born and raised in Bhutan, I’ve done a degree in American lounge and hospitality education. I’ve been working in this industry for the last 5 years and currently, I’m working for The Crossing as bar supervisor.”

“Alcohol has always been an easy subject for me as I’m raised in a culture where we make our own alcohol, (vodka, rice wine, buckwheat and barley wine, etc)”

“The more I learn and understand the more depth I get to know about alcohol, and it’s never-ending and never boring… making cocktails is a life I live with pleasure and gratitude.” Donzai Sherpa
