Great evening with our bartender
Sharmila and I spent a great time with Arsenio – our bartender at the hotel. He has an amazing knowledge of all alcohols and their stories. Of course, it is the local stories that intrigued me the most.
I never realized the amount of local liqueurs, rum and gin that is made in the island! Or that aguardente (aguardiente in the Spanish world) is so popular in the Portuguese world.
Took a lot of notes… and tried a few local beverages…
