The World Bar cocktail Demo for Scholars

Earlier this evening at The World Bar, I had the privelege of conducting a cocktail demonstration for a group of scholarly graduate students from Columbia University.  Their interest gave me hope, hope that more will come forward with the desire to learn all about Mixology. 

 Enough preaching – here are the cocktails I demonstrated, if you care to try at home.  Also, please click on the logos for the sponsors of this fine event: Combier Liqueur, Moet Champagne, and Sagatiba Cachaca.
