Meet our Mixologist: Szabi

Szabi Bodor

Szabi is the Mixologist behind our May Cocktail of the Moment, ‘Green Haze’, which is available for the full month of May in our Lounge.

‘Green Haze’ is a super light and refreshing blend of Martin Millers Gin, Apple Liqueur, Cucumber Syrup, Apple Juice, Lemon Juice, Basil Leaves and Cinnamon Bitters. Garnished with some crunchy green apple. This gorgeous cocktail is summer in a glass!

So let’s get to know him…

Describe yourself in three words…

Bubbly, full-bodied and good spirited!

How long have you been working in the Beverage Industry?

I’ve been working in the beverage industry for 20 years now 🙂

What’s your favourite aspect of your job?…tasting all the delicious cocktails?!

I love creating new recipes and learning new things. I believe that each day you can learn something new!

What inspired you to create FIRE’s May Cocktail of the Moment the ‘Green Haze’?

I wanted to create a cocktail that was refreshing and somewhat healthy for Spring. Through using flavours such as cucumber and apple I think we have achieved something really special.

What’s the best cocktail you’ve ever had?

I’m a classic type so I like classic cocktails. My favourite aperitif cocktail is Negroni. I had it in Sardinia when I was working in Italy and I absolutely loved it.

What inspires you?

When I see customers enjoying the cocktails I have created and giving me positive feedback and comments.

And finally, living or dead, what four people would you like to enjoy a cocktail with…?

Well, I can only say four groups of people;  family, friends, my favourite football team “Hala Madrid” and my colleagues.
