The 2012 American Bartender of the Year has seen it all. Joaquín Simó has poured drinks at some of the best bars in the country and now is the partner/bartender at Pouring Ribbons, a new bar in the East Village featuring cutting edge cocktails and a much-talked about matrix style menu. Hear host Damon Boelte talk shop with Joaquin on another awesome episode of The Speakeasy. This program was sponsored by Edwards VA Ham.

"I don't need this wannabe startender as part of my staff - this isn't an ego trip it's about serving the guest. If you have an issue with carrying a tray, if you think that makes you "less-than", than I don't need you on my staff." [22:00]
