Meet South Africa's Hottest Bartender!

You helped COSMO and Collison's find 10 of SA's hottest bartenders, but in the end there could be only one winner...

Gorgeous Jodie Graves was chosen after a mix-off at Jo’burg’s Manhattan Club, where everyone was dazzled by her talents and cheeky charm. With her flirty smile and flashing eyes, who could resist her?







WHAT SHE’S LIKE:


WHAT’S YOUR STAR SIGN?
I’m a Leo, and you know what that means – I love being the centre of attention, I like being in charge, and I’m always full of energy and optimism. Nothing stops me!

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT BEHIND THE BAR?
I’m a second-year interior-design student, and I’m quite creative. So watch this space.

WHY DO YOU LIKE BARTENDING?

It’s a lot of fun and I get to meet all kinds of people.

WHAT’S ON YOUR RADAR FOR THE FUTURE?
I’m looking at Cape Town. It’s a beautiful place with much to see and do; you can enjoy a different vibe every night of the week.

WHAT ARE YOUR PASSIONS?
I’m into cheerleading and I adore painting – it indulges my arty side.

JODIE’S COLLISON’S CREATION
It’s called Strawberry & Ginger Collie. I wanted to make a drink that was awesome to look at, to taste and to enjoy. It’s easy to mix and is always a winner at parties. I used Collison’s White Gold Brandy served tall over ice with freshly squeezed lemon and ginger ale. Strawberry, ginger and lemon garnishes finish the drink.’

INGREDIENTS
  • Sliced fresh strawberries
  • 2 shots Collison’s White Gold Brandy
  • 2 wedges fresh lemon
  • Ginger ale
  • Sliced ginger and a lemon wheel, to garnish

METHOD
Place strawberries on a skewer, place skewer in a tall glass and fill with ice. Add the brandy and squeezed lemon wedges; top up with ginger ale. Stir gently with skewer, garnish and serve.
