Well, here goes my first attempt at the blogging sphere. I have to say, it sure beats boring my wife with the goings on of my everyday life. But this is mainly for you – all those passionate about spirits and cocktails. To all those who want to learn from each other, as I hope to do from you. I’ll share recipes, stories, musings and mishaps that I hope will entertain. That’s a high standard to strive towards, I know. But what else is more entertaining than reading into the personal lives of others. Nothing, I say.
I’m kinda new at this blogging thing. I have a website, but that’s different. I get some guy in Chicago to update that for me. This is more hands on. Do I even have the time for it? We’ll see, folks, we’ll see.
First off I’d like to inform you that I’m doing some very intense research. Research that I haven’t done as religiously as when I was a 3rd year liberal arts college student. What, might you say, am I researching? Old cocktail books. Yes, I know, it’s a long time coming. Shoulda started sooner. I have to say that I sometimes feel behind on the times when it comes to cocktail history. Oh yeah, and get this, I’ll be leading a seminar along with Brian Rea and Jack Robertiello at this year’s Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans about old cocktail books and recipes. Gotta get crackin’!
