Your white rum and lime mojito has inspired many chefs to try their hands at creating innovative cocktails to complement their cuisines. These chef's cocktails are starting to be taken quite seriously by critics. When did you first start making cocktails for the El Bulli? Have you created any new cocktails recently? Can you share your thoughts on the subject of matching cocktails and food?

Hi, Robb, this is a fascinating area. Cooking techniques can come in to the world of cocktailing. This is an authentic revolution. We can say that in Spain there has been innovation in the field of cocktails.

As it happened with cooking, it will take seven or eight years for this trend to develop. I believe that our work, in hands of good barmen, will yield incredible results. We’ve just simply outlined the foundations.
