In quite a few of our blog and social media posts we mentioned Altino and today we’re going to formally introduce you this creative individual. An inspirational and motivational chat with very close friend Charles Bachelor led Altino Spencer’s transition from server to bartender.
Altino has been with Trade Winds Hotel/Bay House Restaurant & Bar for five (5) years. He truly enjoys the social aspect of his job as it allows him to interact with guests one on one. He loves the freedom of creating individualize cocktails based on their likes and personality, which are always a hit with our guests. He strongly believes that is very important for bartenders to think outside the box, be creative and spontaneous and of course listen and observe your guests enjoyments and dislikes.
Of course his favourite cocktail is the Old Fashioned Rum Punch:
- 1 oz Fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1 oz simple sugar
- 2 oz Cavalier Rum (dark Antiguan rum)
- Angostura Bitters, a sprinkle of cinnamon
- Mix all ingredients in a shaker with bits of ice then pour into glass.
Indulge in an Old Fashioned Rum Punch any time or join us for happy hour everyday from 5pm-7pm daily.
Away from work Altino is an avid reader and you could always find him buried in a crime novel his favourite author being Patricia Cromwell.
