His original creation, Storm the Beach, was featured during the festival’s opening night party held at Marion Square. It is a refreshing, rum punch with hints of cinnamon, cumin and molasses (above). Ryan also had the opportunity to serve up this tropical cocktail at the festival’s Siematic VIP Lounge party (below).

On Saturday, March 4, Ryan participated in the festival’s “What the Pho?” event held at Le Creuset. Ryan embraced the theme of the evening and crafted  his very own creation called “Dashi Outside How Bout Dat”? (below).
