Bacardi U Mix 2019
Last October 3, 2019, the Hospitality Management students attended the annual Bacardi University Mixology Class at the F&B Simulation Room, Ottilien Building.
The mixology class was given by Master Bartender Niño Cruz, Brand Ambassador of Bacardi-Martini Philippines Inc. The talk started with an introduction of different alcoholic beverages, basic bar tools, and demonstration of different techniques. Afterward, the creation of classic cocktails was discussed where samples were prepared and mixed by Mr. Cruz and by student-volunteers from the School of Hotel, Leisure, and Restaurant Management. The last activity was a Do-It-Your Own cocktail session where attendees experienced how to concoct and create their own cocktail.
This annual event serves as a great avenue for students to develop their skills and to be exposed to different careers available in the hospitality and tourism industry. Bartending requires passion and dedication and it is important for people to appreciate what the craft is all about.
