Solarik began his bartending job when he was only 18, around 1998. He first worked at The Cigar Box in London, Ontario, he mainly served Cognac and single malts, but classic cocktails were still in demand. Because of his passion for the job, he learned so fast the ways of mixing drinks in a perfect way. Within a short time, Frankie started implementing his creativity and vision as he served his customers and soon he became so good at it. Because he liked to learn, he also learned that tobaccos, cognacs, and single malts taste great and hence, tried mixing them, he eventually perfected the art and got high demand for the mix.
In the 1990s, Solarik was doing well as a high-volume bartender, he then decided to go to Tocqueville in Manhattan to improve his skills. Although he had not done this before, nothing stopped him from trying and wanting to learn more. He would, therefore, find any new drink, he would try to be creative, and mix it here and there, in the most modernist way and if he liked it, he would then serve it to his clients. But no matter how long it took, he had to finish it all the way down to the last ingredient and then move on to the next course.
Frankie Solarik 21st Century
At the beginning of the 21st century, Solarik moved back to Toronto and shortly decided to start his own business. Immediately after he began doing placements, he got jobs at Rain, Luce, and finally Kultura. He did not stop at that, during his free time, he would watch famous chefs like Susur Lee, Guy Fieri, and Grant Achatz of Alinea, considering he was a creative artist, he put all that knowledge together and got better by the day.
Frankie on the other hand loved making his own drinks, but he would still get ideas from strange places. He once discovered cucumber-and-melon bath soap for his baby and the muted trumpet on Sketches of Spain, and his creativity grew. Actually, Frankie was the first person to put together the strangest combinations, which would then turn out to be the best sellers. He has a unique method that works miracles since those smells go well with the cheese. Again, his business did well because, even before he started his own, he first helped other companies come up with new ideas. But it seems that all along, he was just trying to make a name for himself and his business partner, Brent.
