Episode 6: Martini – Commentary

Since we started doing the show we’ve located certain scenarios that cocktail stories frequently follow. As far as we know, the scenario that the Martini follows is unique…no other cocktail has the value to our culture that the Martini has. I like to say that we need the Martini more than it needs us. What […]

Episode 5: Margarita – Commentary

This episode was an important turning point in the show.

A little background on how the show generated. In 2013 the sudden shocking realization that I had never had a Manhattan occurred to me and […]

What I learned from the Sidecar

What I learned from the Sidecar

So you’ve probably seen these posts I’ve been making weekly, possibly with a name of a friend of yours attached somewhere near the bottom.
