Friday, September 13th, 2013

At the finals of Diageo Reserve Brand’s World Class Bartender Competition this year, I witnessed some incredible drinks being made.


And some of those drinks were made by

Boyd Rodbamrung, Thailand

Boyd Rodbamrung, SMITH restaurant, Thailand

Boyd Rodbamrung is currently head bartender at SMITH restaurant. He learned his craft from mentor and owner of SMITH, Chanond Purananda, a well known mixologist in Thailand.  Boyd loves to use his imagaination when creating drinks and enjoys seeing his customers smile after a sip of one of his cocktails. When he’s not behind the bar, his personal drink of choice is an Old Fashioned with orange essence.

Here’s one of the recipes he wowed us with in the Red Carpet Challenge:
