A few days before National Amaretto Day #nationalamarettoday I gave a talk to the San Francisco chapter of the US Bartenders' Guild about ice.
As science and cocktails are pretty much my two favorite things (with Baywatch coming in a close third), I wish I could attend all of these!
Enjoy a complimentary Gin & Tonic, buy a book or just get yours signed, and very likely take home a free stocking stuffer with your canned food donation. This is gonna be fun.
In advance of Robert Simonson's San Francisco visit, I sent him some interview questions relating to his book A Proper Drink - the history of the global cocktail renaissance from London to New York to San Francisco.
I will visit Chicago this September 14, both to see all your cocktail bars and also to give a talk representing the industry group The Spirit of Italy.
We'll be at the famous Napoleon House in the hours leading up to the Spirited Awards, where I will be losing for Best Cocktail Writer again this year.
