— RYAN BODINE —
Bartender of the Month
Ryan has been in the Restaurant industry since the age of 14 when he began making soda’s and malts at the Sullivan News Stand at his hometown in Sullivan, IN. Ryan has been behind a bar since turning 21 and loves making up drinks that go down smooth but still pack a punch.
Ryan’s philosophy on making a drink is if a drink doesn’t taste good or if you wince after every drink there’s something wrong with it or the bartender making it. With this in mind Ryan turned to Gosling’s Rum when creating his Rum Cay Sangria. Labor intensive, the drink can be a bartender’s worst nightmare on a busy Friday night but watching the expression on a patrons face when they get their first sip is worth the effort. Smooth and bursting with flavor the Rum Cay Sangria has a very creamy head when made properly and if the taste doesn’t knock the guests off their chair, the alcohol content will.
Ryan currently manages Ri Ra Irish Pub in Evansville which overlooks a horseshoe bend of the Ohio river. When working at the Pub, Ryan is invariably drawn to the bar area, where he loves to spend a few minutes chatting up a guest or pulling a quick Pint. If you come in ask him for one of his Gosling specialties!
