Ray's Bar, London, UKFirst study English Literature, then move to London and then visit Cuba – at least that’s what our guest today did before making me the Daiquiri of my dreams. Dave Miller, General Manager of Ray’s Bar in London, reveals how one phone call changed the course of his life.

From a tiny town in Scotland, Dave went from making Sex on the Beach to our cocktail of the week in one of London’s hippest bars. As an English Literature major, he had visions of writing that novel or working in publishing. After one glimpse into the Bonfire of Vanities’ lifestyle of wearing sneakers on the subway to being chained to a desk, he never doubted his life choice again.

Check out my Cocktail of the Week at the end of the podcast to see how you can make Dave’s Motor City Rum Ensemble!
