“During her break, Vanessa had a chance to catch up with one of her favourite guests, a woman who had bartended in New York in the late 80s. The woman was fascinated by the ingredients available and the drinks that Vanessa was able to create. “In my day,” the woman quipped, “if we did anything more complicated than a Vodka Soda, it was a big night”
