When bartender extraordinaire Andreas Trattner is not performing cocktail legerdemain at The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman Lobby Bar, this magician of mixology is whipping, blending and shaking up cocktail concoctions for local competitions.
This year his hard work and talent paid off big-time when Trattner won the United State Bartenders’ Guild World Class Cayman Finals! He will go on to represent the Island in the Global Finals in the UK later this year.
