Bartender Made Cocktails Geisha Spritz

This article is made in collaboration with Mar Ibarra, Batrov and Gorik, three amazing Bartenders in Dubai.

The Cocktail that you are about to make is one of Mar Ibarra’s Signature Fizz Cocktails, which she makes as the Bar Manager at Sumosan, in Dubai.

Let’s Meet The Bartender!

“My name is Mar, I’m from Argentina and I grew up between surfboards, the sea and restaurants!!

I learned to love the Hospitality Industry from a very young age because my family was always involved in it! Being a Bartender gives you the ease of becoming a nomad and being able to travel the world visiting bars and incredible experiences! I had very strong mentors who encouraged me to study in various countries such as Barcelona, the US and London! and I believe that we are in a constant evolution and we need to adapt to the idea of learning something new every day! My favorite cocktail depends on where I am, the weather and the environment that surrounds me… I am a girl of sensations!

I have the joy of developing as a Sumosan Bar Manager and I hope that each lover of our industry understands that the first cocktail that is served is the Smile!” – Mar Ibarra
