The Thirsty Barber in San Ġiljan / Malta

The Thirsty Barber

On July 1st 2020 the airport of Malta opened again. So I went to Malta, to San Ġiljan on Ball Street, where bartender Tisho was waiting for me at THE THIRSTY BARBER with a surprise. He created me a cocktail to my taste. Malta is a wonderful island and THE THIRTY BARBER is a truly exceptional cocktail bar. Here is the cocktail recipe:


  • Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva rum
  • Angostura & bitters
  • cinnamon syrup
  • liqueur of salted caramel and butterscotch
  • apple juice


  1. Add all ingredients in a mixing glass.
  2. Add ice cubes.
  3. Stir for 20 seconds.
  4. Strain into cocktail glass.
  5. Garnish with flowers and fruits.


THE THIRSTY BARBER is Malta`s first prohibition style bar. The Thirsty Barber boasts a unique cocktail list, developed by a team of qualified and experienced mixologists. One can choose from a variety of Prohibition-era cocktails, martinis and champagne cocktails, some of which are also to share. The bar’s signature cocktail also happens to be the most expensive on the island. I firmly believe that every guest visiting The Thirsty Barber has a fantastic experience.
