    Very informative presentation. I can totally relate to the idea of making cocktails with the mindset of a tea ceremony (sado). My daughter has taught tea ceremony and a lot of the aspects are similar. I would love to see more bars encourage their mixologists to craft the cocktail with respect and attention to detail. Unfortunately, when you’ve got a busy night, things like that tend to go out the door in favor of cranking out product.

    In any case, what I came away with, is that ice is not only an important part of making drinks, but that other than correct ratios of ingredients, ice is probably more important tan most of us realized.

Its a passion , way of life :) I suggest you to watch the movie Cocktail with Tom Cruise , it would grab you and make you wanna learn to be part of that.

    Looking for the iPod version… when is it going to be out?

    Adam – Apologies had uploaded the iPod version but hadn’t added the link to the post. The iPod version of this episode should now show up in iTunes as normal (though it’ll probably be below some more recent episodes).

    Extremely interesting video! I found it interesting how he audits the cocktails before they are iced, so that he can still adjust it. I linked to this site while discussing that issue here:
