“Torombolo”. It’s the new buzzword in TikTok. This was called a 80s cocktail that teens now replicate en masse in plan meme. It was resurrected in a highball glass by a thirty-something waitress from Montgat. He drank it “Juan, el Torombolo –related on the networks-, that’s what they called a client of my grandparents’ bar & rdquor ;. He is already an eminence of the parodies.

@xiquetamontgat, is called in networks. It has gone viral serving eighties cocktails capable of knocking Pocholo down in one sip. “I drink that – point out the thousands of comments at the foot of the glass – and I go home speaking Russian & rdquor ;. You would say that with a glass he would sing until Rajoy in the Kitchen commission.

Accumulate 5.7 million ‘likes’ only on TikTok. More of 21 million views in the last 7 days. They already send him gifts, he is contacted by brands, he has hordes of imitators. There are those who have made a pilgrimage to his Montgat bar just to take a picture with her. “It’s like panic & rdquor ;, laughs Esther. “I don’t believe it & rdquor ;.

Esther Martinez, that’s his real name. He is 39 years old and has a sense of humor at the level of the alcohol in their glasses. “Yes, that’s why I’m here. If not, I couldn’t. ”He huffs. Now I don’t have so much hater, but when I started with TikTok it was horrible & rdquor ;.

Gives express trust. After seeing her pour so many loaded glasses, meeting her in person makes you want to say with alcoholic devotion “edesh mih mejrod armigahz & rdquor ;. You will end up hugging her with intensity at night of drinks after trying Juan’s Torombolo. It’s not bad, no, but what a disappointment: not even drinking the entire glass you go home speaking Russian.

From 10,000 is when they start paying on TikTok. He started doing a live show and publishing 3 videos a day.

And it occurred to him to pull the bar story. The combined 80s: Mixes in a highball glass with which to hallucinate pickles as was done before. Resurrected the torombolo (vodka with pineapple juice), the lumumba (brandy and chocolate shake), the cristal (vodka with Licor 43), the screwdriver (vodka with orange), the orgasm (peach and lemon liqueur). Effective: “They are cocktails from the 80s – summarizes a comment from the networks – from the 80 days of hangover that leave you & rdquor ;.
