Ricardo Barrero

Ricardo has travelled far and wide to hone his craft. Starting young, he’s picked up numerous culinary and hospitality qualifications in both Sydney and Bogota, then graduating as a sommelier back home in Brazil.

As a Brand Ambassador for Mathieu Teisseire in Brazil, Ricardo loves the opportunity it affords him to interact with new people and educate them on a subject that he is truly passionate about. He’s currently based in Sao Paolo, and he loves to stay on top of the constantly evolving trends in the city, such as flavoured foams and non-alcoholic cocktails.

It’s Ricardo’s passion for the industry that keeps him at the forefront of his craft. He believes that when you can adapt, you’re already one step ahead.

Ricardo’s top 6 tips for every drinks master:

  • Know your audience - “By knowing what your customer is looking for, it helps you to choose the right cocktail options”
  • Be aware of the trends - “Even if you don´t like to follow what is in fashion, when you understand what the customer is referring to it allows you to offer a better option”
  • Never forget to smile
  • Be humble
  • The secret ingredient is passion
  • Always be honest, read the label, keep studying and never give up
