Behind the Bar: Eddy Rocha of SaltRock Kitchen

Name: Eduardo “Eddy” Rocha

Title: Lead Bartender

Find me mixing drinks at SaltRock Kitchen at Amara Resort and Spa

My favorite drink to make: Sours, because they tend to look beautiful and there is a lot of room for creativity.

I’d most like to mix a drink for anyone willing to learn something new or teach me something about cocktails or spirits.

If I could have one superpower while working, it’d be the ability to clone myself since I’m not great at asking for help and that way I wouldn’t have to!

If I were a flavor, I’d be bittersweet.

My biggest bartending fail: I wouldn’t classify any of my mistakes as failures, but more as learning experiences. Some of my coolest concepts were happy accidents.

My top drink and food recommendation to guests: Anything with protein, I’m a huge carnivore and I love a mean steak. I also love serving mezcal since it has such a rich culture and I love talking about it.

When I’m not working, I enjoy sipping on mezcal!

My favorite place in town for drinks is SaltRock Kitchen of course!
