Introducing Head Bartender: Martina Furiga
Behind the bar of London’s hottest new quayside restaurant, Bella Cosa, stands Head Bartender Martina Furiga. Drawing from her Italian roots and three years spent in Milan studying hospitality, Martina has single-handedly crafted the restaurant’s entire cocktail list. Speaking passionately about her job, she says, “The best thing about what I do is being able to create new, exciting recipes and impress diners with original and unique flavours.” Martina, aged 29, has worked tirelessly to create a list of cocktails her guests will enjoy by combining delicious homemade syrups with mixers and innovative garnishes. The mouth-warming Italian Sunset and fruit-forward Mediterranean Collins are just two of the beverages on offer.
