Aspen’s Most Engaging Bartender

We asked our followers to vote on their favorite “Most Engaging Bartender” in Aspen and followed up with an interview and photo session of the winner, Mattias Dylan Horseman, during his summer cocktails mixology session.

A former ball room dancer and Psych major, Mattias is now the lead bartender at Aspen’s Chefs Club by Food & Wine. In our interview he talks about the importance of living a balanced life with an incredible team who are like family to him.

The first time I met Mattias was inside the VIP tent at the St. Regis Snow Polo Championship in Aspen where I was broadcasting live on Periscope. When one has an expensive camera in hand it is usually well received by guests, but broadcasting from an iPhone does not always generate the same kind of enthusiasm. Panning through the crowd in search of good content for my audience, I landed upon Mattias in all his glory, entertaining the crowd with an infectious smile and an exuberant energy that seemed to uplift the mood of the entire party.

It is with great pleasure that we introduce you to him through a photography portrayal by the very talented, Alex Blanco.

Excited to document an undercurrent culture of  our town, Alex was able to capture Mattias and a member of his bartender team, Patrick Flanigan, as they used their well-seasoned palates and mixology expertise at the Chefs Club to create deliciously complex drinks with playful names like the Latin Half Beat and Namaste (pronounced Nah-I’ma-Stay).

It was an informative adventure being immersed into the intricacies of mixology and we hope that you enjoy Alex’s images and the interview with Aspen’s “Most Engaging Bartender”.

How Nature Heals, A Story From aspenreallife.com: #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at aspenreallife.com#hownatureheals#intotheforest#hoarfrost#textures#natureheals#aspenreallife ...
