In the latest of a regular series, we ask local bartenders to showcase a signature serve featuring the superb premium spirits brands presented by Proximo. Katy Fearon, supervisor at The National Grande Café, Belfast, creates a classic cocktail featuring Boodles Gin

BOODLES TOM COLLINS

50ml Boodles Gin
25ml lemon juice
10ml simple/sugar syrup
Served in a Collins glass with ice
Garnished with a lemon twist & cherry

“The Tom Collins is such a classic drink and Boodles is a really nice gin,” says Katy Fearon. “You want to let it come through and don’t want to do too much to mess with it.”

About the bartender:

Hailing from Sheffield, Katy Fearon has been in the bar trade for eight years and has worked in cocktail bars of varying calibre. While some venues were in the high volume rather than quality end of the trade, learning to keep up was a skill in itself, she says. Three years ago, Katy came over to study for a master’s in human rights law at Queen’s and she liked Belfast so much, she stayed. Katy has worked at The National for two years, and says she has always enjoyed working in hospitality and it was natural to fall back into it. As well as meeting new people every day, picking up on customers’ interest in food and drink and helping them try new things is an element she particularly enjoys.
