This article is made in collaboration with Grigoris Mountanos, an amazing Greek Bartender in Spain.

The Cocktail that you are about to make is one of Grigoris Mountanos’s Signature Fizz Cocktails, which he makes at Boadas Cocktails, in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain

Let’s Meet The Bartender!

“My name is Grigoris Mountanos, I’m from Kalamata in Greece. I have worked in the hospitality industry for 10 years now. It is my passion to serve people and give them a great experience with amazing drinks and also to have fun in the bar. In this moment I feel grateful because I’m working in a very special and classic cocktail bar at Barcelona, also very old from 1933 called Boadas Cocktail. We are a new team with great people with a lot of energy and passion. My favourite drink is difficult to answer, but I’m a big lover of the Daiquiri and Penicillin.” – Grigoris Mountanos

What Was The Inspiration Behind Your Oaxaca Royal Cocktail?

“The inspiration comes from my big love and passion to agave spirits. I wanted to create an all day drink, something fresh and easy for any occasion. Going back to my roots in Greece I add basil which brings back so many memories, with the combination of ginger and lime! Last but not least the final touch of Cava, came out of my daily life here in Barcelona, which keeps me company in many occasions, so I guess it plays an important role! And the last touch of a basil leaf as a garnish brings all the above to harmony with the smell and colour in your first interaction with the drink!” – Grigoris Mountanos
