Beyond the Drink: Ignacio “Nacho” Jimenez & the Caprice (S8/Ep.11)

Published on: 14th December, 2022

Jose Ignacio “Nacho” Jimenez has nearly 20 years of hospitality experience and has become known for not only his drinks, but his enthusiastic spirit behind the bar. He’s worked at some of NYC’s most respected cocktail bars- most recently as the bar manager of Ghost Donkey,  where he celebrated the art of Mexican hospitality. In this episode, we discuss a martini-like classic cocktail called the Caprice, which traces its roots back to Chicago in the 30's. We also touch upon how Nacho uses his voice and talent behind the bar to give back to different causes and organizations, most recently an event benefiting Woman Life Freedom NYC, a women’s rights movement working to amplify the voices of Iran on the streets of NYC. Enjoy this episode as we go Beyond the Drink… with Ignacio “Nacho” Jimenez. (cocktail recipe below)
