Solomiya Grytsyshyn

Solomiya was born in 1995. Currently head bartender of the Chorus Cafe in Rome, she moved from Ukraine to Italy as a child.

Her first approach to the world of bars happens in the historic Stravinkskij Bar of the Hotel de Russie, and that magical environment draws her to the world of mixing.

She gains experience behind the counter as a bartender working for large events throughout Italy. Among her collaborations: Gambero Rosso, Gambero Rosso Channel, Giardini d’Amore.

Her mixing is inspired by the care for the customer himself, aiming at the constant search for balance and flavours that can surprise and envelop in the elegant experience of a tailor-made drink.

What cocktail would you take to a desert island?

As in the most classic imaginary of a desert island, I would take with me a good bottle of Rum, lime and sugar … so as to quench my thirst with huge quantities of Daiquiri.

Which character, either past or present, you would you like to drink one of your cocktails and which one?

A cocktail to taste from my cookbook is undoubtedly The Club. I am very fond of it and certainly all the famous people of the past and present would like it.

A funny and bizarre anecdote that happened to you behind the counter

The best bar anecdotes are those that once you write them, they stop being funny.
So I invite you to connect with me in a live chat so I can tell you about them …:)
