Rising Star Mixologist Gui Jaroschy of The Broken Shaker - Biography

Miami Beach, FL

March 2016

Born and raised in sunny Austin, Texas, Gui Jaroschy had an early inclination toward food and drink. He took cooking classes at six and got his first restaurant gig at 18, but the oversized presence of the University of Texas lured him toward a more traditional track: a bachelor’s degree in anthropology. 

Still harboring an affinity for all things food and beverage, Jaroschy made the leap to Miami—for its beaches, beautiful weather, and booming hospitality industry. Instead of taking the standard (read: lucrative) club job, Jaroschy started bartending at South Beach’s Delano Hotel, where he built a proper foundation in the classics and began to develop his signature style of culinary cocktails. Jaroschy eventually earned the title of director of bars for the property. 

In late 2012, a mile north of the Delano, Elad Zvi and Gabriel Orta launched the Broken Shaker bar pop-up in the Indian Creek Hotel. The hotel soon transformed into the hip Freehand Hotel, and Broken Shaker became Miami’s premier cocktail destination. Jaroschy joined Zvi and Orta early on, tapping into the property’s garden to further spark his creativity. Growing with the group, Jaroschy took over as bar manager and helped launch Broken Shaker Chicago—work that landed him on Food & Wine’s “Top 10 Best New Mixologists” list in 2015. In addition to his work at Broken Shaker, Jaroschy has consulted on menus for Ricochet Lounge, the Drunken Dragon, Kreepy Tiki, and British Airways. In 2016, Jaroschy was named a StarChefs Rising Star Bartender for South Florida.
