I am a working bartender with a focus on education, sharing ideas, and making the cocktail bar fun again. Originally from Pittsburgh, and currently located in New York, I've traveled, lived and worked in many cities, trying to absorb as much knowledge and culture as possible. This blog was created as an outlet for my never ending geekery involving all things beverage. Any feedback is always appreciated. Cheers, and enjoy!
