Welcome to Experiments From The Bar
About the blog:
This blog is a place for me to share some of the drink recipes I’ve created, and to try and help people like me that want to start keeping their own home bar and playing around with making drinks. To that end, in addition to new, original recipes, you’ll also see recipes of classic cocktails, staples of the drinking world, as well as recommendations for basic bar tools, glassware, spirits, and some easy how to’s. I’ll occasionally post reviews of original cocktails and their bar of origin, and my own stabs at recreating or riffing on them.
About the author:
I am not a professional bartender, just an avid hobbyist that likes a nice drink or two and loves experimenting and making drinks for my friends. I live in the Atlanta area with my lovely wife and our two dingoes. I am a huge geek, and I’ve recently taken to crafting drinks based on characters from various LARPs that I play.
I’ve been making drinks, informally for the last 13 years, starting off back in my college days when I found myself stuck behind the bar at parties making ridiculous candy-tasting college coolers. Since then, my palate has improved, I’m happy to say. I found a love for classic cocktails, from the Prohibition era and mid Century cocktail resurgence, 8-9 years ago, and got into the growing craft cocktail scene in the last 5.
