A new shed and a cocktail
I know, I know. It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted, and I’m sure you missed me. The only reason I can give for my absence is that we’ve been working on the house…and we got a huge new shed (photos to come in the near future when it’s completely painted---which has taken a solid 30 hours of man, woman, and cat power). The other excitement is my recent work-related jaunt down to NYC to attend a bartending class/test. It consisted of a written exam of all things spirits related, and a practical test of making classic cocktails. Yes, that’s right, I shook my first cocktail—in front of a panel of the nation’s top spirit professionals! It was a bit stressful, to say the least….and I had only found out that I was going days before. There will be more about that endeavor—I promise.
