Humble Beginnings
Bartending is an old and honorable trade, - Patrick Gavin Duffy,
The Official Mixer's Manual (1934)

I always had an inkling that I'd sell the first one and something told me that it could be that night. Iwatched as a regular customer entered the room with another gentleman and two female companions, They were in high spirits, dressed for the occasion and as I approached their table, I heard the ladies discussing cocktails, They asked me what Iwould recommend, This was exactly how i hoped it would happen, I had rehearsed the scene a hundred times in my head, 'This cocktail was invented for discerning people like you - it's an original Trader Vic's Mai Ta, The key ingredient is extrernely rare Wray and Nephew 17 year old rum from Jamaica, It has been reproduced to the exact original formula and we are the only bar in the world that actually has a bottle to sell," Four set of eyebrows raised and glances were exchanged, I could see they were impressed, 'You'll be making history by being the first to buy this cocktail," I continued, The gentleman nodded ascent. Iturned to ask my manager to fetch the bottle from the safe, only to find that every member of staff was watching and listening, The manager could not have handled the precious bottle more careful~, The clear bottle containing a rich amber liquid valued at £26,000 was brought down to the potential history makers' table, They inspected the bottle thorough~, each one holding it, turning it round, reading the hand written label. I couldn't take my eyes off it "How much is it7" asked Regular Customer, My mouth was dry, 'The cost refiects the rarity of the rum, It's the historical price of £750," Then I added hastily so that there could be no misunderstanding after the drink had been consumed, "Per cocktail." The silence was deafening, "Alright, make one up! Give it to this lady here, ,,," said Regular Customer's friend as he gestured towards the woman who was

sitting closest to him, "Let her decide if it's worth it or not." A sense of excitement and anticipation "filledthe air, Word had "filteredout and Regular Customer and his friends had now become the centre of attention as the senior bartender stood up to prepare the drink. He careful~ opened the bottle and began pouring the ingredients one by one into the mlxing glass with surprisingly steady hands, The end product was reddish in colour, indicating to the bartender that the proportions had been mixed perfectly, He added ice then sealed the shaker and shook the drink vigorously, He strained the contents over fresh ice into a pre-chilled rocks glass, gamished it up and then placed it on a tray, It didn't seem "fittingto have any other drinks accompanying this one on its historicaljoumey, A quick scan of the ~oor from bar to table ensured there was no obstacle in my way, I placed the drink in front of the lady - a trophy, a first. The lady history maker was delighted with the presentation, She sipped to a round of applause and nodded in approval, ''Would you like to try it?" She asked, holding out the glass to me, "Are you serious, , .?' I choked, ''Wellyou're the one who sold it to us - you're as much a part of this as we are," she insisted, I leaned forward and took a sip of the worlds most expens~e cocktail, Iwanted to savour the moment forever and so held the precious nectar in my mouth for as long as possible, The drink was unique, It had serious depth to it and was unlike any other beverage I'd ever tasted in my life,Although it was perfectly balanced, I could quite de"finite~distinguish the individualqualities that each component lent to it: the strength and age of the near mythical rum coupled with the dryness of the Curacao, the subtle sweetness of the syrups and the zesty freshness of the lime juice, Ithanked the lady sincerely for the generosity she had just showen me and as Iwas walking back to the bar I remember thinking that that had been one of those very rare moments in lifewhen everything had indeed seemed purposeful. I had just tasted a piece of history, and it was bloody beautiful! Gareth Shaw
