Cocktail culture takes centerstage at Segafredo Brickell as Victor Merino adds a fierce, fiery and feisty arsenal of spirited concoctions to the mix that will surely light your fire and exceed your every desire. Merino got his start in the bev biz by working at Glam Theater in Spain, Ibiza’s El Lio and world-renowned party place Pacha. “A good atmosphere is a must,” he says, showing off some of his signature moves behind the bar. “Our clients are always entertained with my fire-spitting dare-devil antics and the bottle tricks I’ve mastered over the years.” Energetic, charming and spontaneous, Merino isn’t only a cocktail master; he’s got some serious dance moves and a silvery set of pipes that would make Sinatra green-eyed with envy. Now that’s something worth drinking to;
