Bartender Q&A Luke Tullos of Jazziz Nightlife on Martinis, Favorite Places to Drink, and More
From London jazz joints serving gin by the jug to American speakeasies creating interesting concoctions of whatever they could get their hands on during Prohibition, the drinks and the music are both representative of a good time.
In saying so, it should come as no surprise that South Florida's preeminent jazz bar serves a pretty stellar mixed drink. We spoke to Luke Tullo of Jazziz Nightlife about his favorite drinks (hint: It's a martini), the fast food of cocktails, and his favorite local bartenders in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
Clean Plate Charlie: Hometown/ High School?
Tullos: Lafayette, Louisiana; the most magical place in the U.S. for culture junkies. You eat some of the best food in the South all day and dance it all off that night. I've been in South Florida about a year and a half.
How long have you been in the industry?
I've been in the industry for about nine years (in many different aspects).
I knew I wanted to be a bartender when I found out that people would give me money to hang out and make them delicious things.
Favorite drink to make?
A classic Martini: two parts gin, one part fresh dry vermouth, dash of orange bitters, stirred and served up with a lemon peel. If made properly, it's a game changer. You heard it here first: You THOUGHT you knew about the Martini.
