Did you know that the top 10 cocktail - the Pornstar Martini, was created by the late Douglas Ankrah - an cocktail entrepreneur, author and businessman?
Lauded as a pioneer in the drinks industry, Douglas established one of the popular cocktail spots in London and co-founded the Soho-based London Academy of Bartenders to train bartenders.
Douglas tragically passed away in 2021 at the age of 51.
We spoke to his older sister Lily Naadu Mensah, personal brand coach and author of ‘Work Your Quirks’, about Douglas, his career and how his family and friends plan to honour his legacy.
