On January 29th, at 5 P.M., Celebrity Mixologist Adrian Alvarado will be kicking off the "Prohibition Wednesdays" at Prime 16 in Orange.
As an Actor/Mixologist, Adrian is best known for his role on ABC's General Hospital where he played Detective Cruz Rodriguez. Originally from Jersey City N.J., Adrian moved to L.A. where he started booking commercials and TV appearances in "Without a Trace," "Big Love," "Law & Order: LA" and "Body of Proof" before landing his longest running role on General Hospital.
Since moving back to the East Coast with his wife and two children, Adrian has expanded his passion for the hospitality industry. Bartending didn't just become a side income, it became a passion. As a Mixologist he worked for the famous Soho House Group in Los Angeles and New York
"The Cocktail culture is vastly growing, It's not just about going out and getting a drink. It's about going out and enjoying a new experience in flavors and it's history in a responsible way."
Adrian points out there is a difference between a Bartender and a Mixologist. A Mixologist tends to focus on the art and craft of mixing Cocktails, studying the classics, concocting new and exotic drinks, experimenting with lesser known distilled spirits and mixers, and, overall, pushing the limits of classic bartending. Adrian is excited to be in the New Haven area and joining Prime 16 in expanding the Craft Cocktail Culture by adding a little more fun to your drinking and dining experience.
