2011: My Year in Cocktail Writing

Looking over the year (read: sending invoices) for 2011, it turns out that I managed to get a lot of work done in between all the trips.

This year I contributed to:

  • FineCooking.com as the weekly cocktail blogger
  • Mixology Magazine in Germany
  • The LA Times Magazine
  • Caviar Affair Magazine
  • SilverKris (Singapore Airlines)
  • Penthouse Magazine
  • The San Francisco Chronicle
  • 7x7 Magazine
  • Tasting Panel Magazine
  • TastingTable.com
  • Drink Magazine (China)
  • Sunset Magazine
  • Every Day with Rachael Ray Magazine
  • DiffordsGuide/ CLASS Magazine
  • ShakeStir.com
  • Drinks International
  • The Bold Italic

Plus, I blogged every day here on Alcademics.com and worked on both the Solid Liquids Project and the Sugar Spirit Project. 

I spoke at several conferences this year including Vino 2011, SF Chefs, and the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers Association, covered cocktail competitions in France, Spain, and India, and judged them in Vegas and San Francisco. 

So, I guess that was a pretty productive year! Thanks again for reading all my blatherings.
