“Inspired by the Joker and the Thief from Dylan’s All Along The Watchtower”

Alex DyzartAlex Dyzart is from Kent but he aquired his cocktail mixing skills in Auckland’s speakeasies during a two year stay in New Zealand. On returning to the UK Alex fell on his feet and joined the team at the famous Venn Street Records, where he is now assistant manager.

Alex’s first tattoo features Sailor Jerry Swallows “that are linked heavily to Sailor Jerry rum. A very popular brand with bartenders”, he explains. “My next tattoo was rather more ambitious and took three years in the planning alone. Inspired by the Joker and the Thief from Dylan’s All Along The Watchtower, the design covers my entire right sleeve and it was important to get every detail correct. I’m now working on designs for my left sleeve with a phoenix as its central character. But it’s not just the design that’s time consuming, finding the tattoo artist that I want to work with is a challenge in its own right”.

In 2013 a close friend, with a passion for blue coloured drinks, passed away and that Blue Daiquiri was his favorite cocktail ever, “he drunk it all the time !” said Alex.

Blue Daiquiri

60ml Plantation 3 Star Rum
10ml Giffard Blue Curacao
30ml Fresh lime juice
5ml – 10ml Giffard Sugar Syrup, according to taste

Hard shake.
