WORLD CLASS COUNTRY WINNER 2015

Santos Mercedes

Bartending runs in Santons’ blood. In fact he learnt bartending from his mom, who used to own a beach bar, which is where he made his first daiquiris and mojitos. He spent every summer at the beach helping out the family growing a passion for the craft of cocktails.  He soon moved on, working in several bars and taking in all the information he could about bartending. The opportunity to learn something new in every country he visited was too much for Santos to turn down, leading him to join Celebrity Cruises which offered a chance to travel, experience new cultures and do what he likes most; bartending.
