Sharing her passion for culture and flavours with people is the foundation of Alisa's love for bartending. Alisa moved to Russia from Ukraine 8 years ago to achieve this dream and express her artistic spirit through cocktail creations. Many of Alisa's projects and cocktails revolve around music as a way of bringing people together.
To her, the Patrón Perfectionists cocktail competition represents an inspirational story of people forming a community, caring for each other, for their craftsmanship and for their produce.
Alisa's Evocative Cocktail celebrates this union and these values with a vibrant and colourful mix that heroes the flavours, aromas and sounds that remind us of beautiful memories spent together. The ideal cocktail to be replicated at home for a get together.
