Cocktails

Many years ago, my mind starting thinking about cocktails. I was a grown man in my 30s with a wife, two kids, a mortgage and a career. But I knew squat about cocktails. So I went to a few nice bars and ordered things I’d heard about – Martinis, Manhattans,well, after that I was about done. But I tasted these and they were horrible….and expensive.

So, as I often do, I bought a book – a cocktail book. I bought some bottles. I started mixing at home. These were wonderful. What I learned was that the state of cocktail culture in Cincinnati at the time just plain sucked. So I hosted some parties and now I do a little bartending around town, just for fun.
