Colin Peter Field is his name. He is the Best Bartender in the World according to Forbes magazine and the only Bartender in history to make it into the French Who's Who. One of his favorite regulars....Kate Moss. Yes, Super-Model Kate Moss! wow. This guy is the truth. He works as the head bartender for the world renowned Hemingway Bar in the Ritz in Paris, France. (Coco Chanel lived 30 years at this hotel!) This is the very bar Ernest Hemingway would write about as being his favorite, as well as F. Scott Fitzgerald. Colin has been running this world famous bar since 1994 and helped to restore the small bar to its original condition after it had been closed for decades. He is probably one of the most knowledgeable bartenders ever. He speaks multiple languages that he can write and read fluently. "Every morning when I wake up, I read newspapers from France, England, Germany and the United States so that if one of my customers wants to discuss current events or the stock market, I know what I'm talking about." says Colin about his daily ritual. "Some people like to talk with a bartender," he says. "Some don't. My job here is to be the host, the showman, the life of the party." He takes his job very, very seriously. He can concoct a perfect cocktail to match your mood, your taste, or even your outfit. He often garnishes cocktails for his lady patrons with roses and orchids. Nice! Well with the most famous bartender in the world at the most famous bar in the world comes with a price I'm sure. He serves the most expensive cocktail in the world, the Ritz Sidecar, at a staggering $1661.50! Further proof that you get what you pay for!
