UK Food & Drink Editor, Time Out London
Tania’s life in bars Tania has spent a decade drinking professionally, having already had a decade of drinking unprofessionally. Her first job out of school was as a bartender in a dodgy US-style cocktail bar in Zone 6 (it wasn’t a total waste: she learned how to make long island ice teas by the pitcher). Later, she worked for Diageo North America, where one job involved showcasing the ‘fire’ in Goldschlager cinnamon schnapps by visiting various US ski bars dressed as a sparkly firefighter. Complete with a sparkly hat.
Fave drink? A sidecar, a blood and sand, or just a really good margarita.
