Hello, and welcome to my world! I have worked as a bartender for the last decade and a half in wide variety of settings. Everything from lonely service bars to full on rock concerts. I currently find myself employed in a very busy upscale setting, working five long nights a week. Our clientage leans toward the middle to upper class, however every night is different. What follows are true stories as seen from my vantage point behind the bar. Outside of my honesty, and the fact that they all unravel at my workplace, there is no single theme behind these events I will share. Hopefully some will find your funny bone, some may piss you off, and others might even inspire. So pull up a stool, let me mix you a beverage, and enjoy…Tales From A Bar!
Liquid FusionPretty Pyrat. Another of my own creations....a luxurious rum inspired spin on The Beautiful...that works well as an after dinner cocktail. In a heated snifter...add three quarters of an ounce of Pyrat XO Reserve Rum with an equal amount of Grand Marnier.
