Episode 067 - Beer Part 1 of 3

As promised, I didn't take long in getting to my next episode. As a nod towards my new job at World of Beer in Lake Mary, FL, I am doing the next three episodes on beer. Part one goes into the history of beer and talks a bit about the ingredients. The next two episodes will go into great details on a BUNCH of different beer styles. You can find every episode still available on iTunes under Podcast or you can feel free to look at all of my posts here on my website using the "Episodes" label if you want to manually select an episode and stream over your web browser.

Literally "Behind The Bar" in Lake Mary, FL

Hello all!

It's been a crazy year and a half. After walking away from an 18+ year career, packing up and moving cross country and trying my hand at real estate, I finally seem to be settling in to my new home and best yet, the bar where I now work. Funny though. Mr. Martini ends up in a beer bar. I must say though, if you really know me you know I like to learn about every aspect of bar tending and that includes beer. There's SO many styles of beers and a growing list of brewers. It has been a challenge for me and a blast keeping up with 40 taps and over 500 different bottles. That said, I'm happy that my bar is now full liquor as well and we're focusing hard on making quality craft cocktails with fresh ingredients. I already have some regulars who come in looking for me to make them Sazerac cocktails.

Anyway, if you're in the Lake Mary, Florida area, head to World of Beer Lake Mary in Townpark Plaza and I'll be happy to mix you up a cocktail or pour you a beer!

Once I get everything straightened out, I'm considering posting some more Behind The Bar Show episodes. It would be great doing another one on beer considering all I've learned.

Missing but not out of the game

Well, it's been a long time since my last post or podcast episode. It's definitely been getting slower and slower. Basically, I've had some MASSIVE life changes. We sold our condo in San Francisco and moved back to the Orlando, FL area. We own a beautiful home and most importantly, I'm now 9 miles from my beautiful daughter... the biggest reason for the move. Of course, moving across country doesn't simply happen without casualties. I had to leave my job and start over. Even though I continue to look for bartending options (Strangely enough, a lot of bars around here could care less how long you've been doing a cocktail podcast or private parties in customer's homes. LOL) I decided to also venture into another career option I've always been interested in. I love helping people so I have started my own Real Estate Business. I am having a blast doing it and it gives me a great feeling when I watch a couple sit at the table and close on their new house. The smiles are worth it. I have to add this since I'm out to help anyone I can, don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any real estate questions or would like some assistance finding a great REALTOR® in your area. I can help anyone, anywhere. Oh, and I can give good cocktail recipes as a bonus. LOL

Just to prove that I'm not down for the count, here's a great picture taken at a Derby Party I bartended yesterday. Man, I had fun! The drink specials of the night were mint juleps, mojitos and El Diablos... along with whatever you want from all those bottles behind me. Oh, and yeah... this is in someone's house! I could live in their bar. Keep your eyes open for new video episodes because we're playing around with some ideas of future episodes recorded behind this bar.

Shaking up cocktails in one of the nicest home bars I've been in. Oh, and it was a hat party so everyone was wearing their best hat.

Thank you, Tracey and Kris, for letting me behind your beautiful bar. It was my pleasure to bartend for your party!

Until next time, cocktail enthusiasts. Keep stirring and shaking!

Episode 65 - Muddler

Hello fellow cocktail enthusiasts! Well, we did it! We moved to Florida. I may be in my new home but as mentioned during the last post, I already recorded episode 65 in my old place before selling it... and here it is!

In this episode, we'll talk about the muddler as well as put everything we've learned together to create a wonderful summertime drink perfect for poolside. I mean, hey, I'm in Florida now. There will be a lot more cocktails poolside for me.

I think after this one I'm going to go back to doing audio episodes. I've also thought of alternating between audio episodes on a specific topic and video episodes focusing on a specific cocktail recipe. What do you think? Email me and let me know. Feel free to give me topics you'd like to hear on an audio episode or drink recipes you'd like me to make on a video episode. If there are more bar tools you'd like me to do an episode on, let me know that too.
