Born and raised in Kiev, Maria Baranets is the siren the bartending world has been waiting for. Her astounding beauty and seductive allure bemoans confidence and her drinks are just as deadly as the cheeky wink she provides, whilst sliding her latest astounding creation across the bar.

A good heart is hard to find these days and Maria wears hers on her sleeve and with a comprehensive knowledge of drinks and drinking, and a genuinely charming personality that is absent of any trace of insincerity, bars and brands from across the globe have their hopes set on winning over this rare and precious Ukrainian temptress. Knowing the rules of the game is one thing, but breaking them is the true mark of an innovator.

Ladies and gentleman without further ado, please allow me to introduce the one and only Maria Baranets and her cocktail Bad Girl!
