Bartender + mixology = cocktails

La Cocktail it is the art of creating cocktails. A cocktail on the other hand, is a drink made based on the combination of different components or ingredients. Usually this mixture contains two or more types of drinks, whether alcoholic or not, such as juices, honey, milk, fruits, spices, creams, tonic water, soft drinks, etc.

In shops or local the cocktails are served by personnel expert in their preparation who are known as bartenders (a word derived from the English bartender).

I am a dreamer and in my dreams I believe that a better world is possible, that no one knows more than anyone, we all learn from everyone. I love gastronomy, numbers, teaching and sharing all the little I know, because by sharing I also learn. "Let's all go together from foundation to success"
