Often the first items you'll sample at Daiquiri Dick's is a cocktail, glass of wine or other beverage. Bartender Ezequíel Ramos will probably be making it for you. He's been at the restaurant as a full-time bartender since 1994.

Ezequíel likes the hustle and his space behind the bar. the busier he is the more enjoyable the work day. "Last year we added a lot of new drinks including dessert martinis, sangrias and a complete specialty cocktail menu," says Ezequíel, "It was a challenge developing and refining the recipes but we had a great deal of fun, too."

A friend of his worked at Daiquiri Dick's in the early 90s and when he was laid off of work as a bartender at the Mayan Palace during the summer, he friend recommended working at Daiquiri Dick's and he has been serving up cool beverages ever since.

"I have the best view in town," says Ezequíel, "There are not many jobs where you work right on the beach with a great view and a nice breeze." He says he likes the owners and the staff and says if work in not fun, why work there.

Ezequíel can be found mixing and shaking morning and evenings because he works the swing shift.
