    Why do you break the fancy square ice versus just using like freezer ice or bagged ice cubes?? It’s not like the going to end up in the final product? It’s more for temperature right?

    Okay so I have a question and sorry if I am a little ignorant but does the Angostura Bitters is it okay for a pre teen/teenager to have it in a drink? im only asking because when i was like 12-13 I had a babysitter from Trinidad where the product is from and she used to make me like this special lemon ginger tea when I would get sick and then add a few drops of the bitters to it. I mean I always felt better but was that legal? Lol 😂 just curious.

    i'm straight edge, so Jeff you're not the only one that thinks Last Words are disgusting.
    although i question you anyway.....cuz if Bond is your big influence, you have to SHAKE a Vesper. i mean that's dumb as hell, but no one orders a Vesper because the like martini's. people order Vespers hoping to come off just as suave and mysterious as James Bond.

    i went straight to the mojito and i noticed he says the drink incorporates lime, but he never adds the lime. Club soda is often a common ingredient as well, but is not mentioned. I'm doubtful about these recipes he's using.

    I get it- they'll be demonetised if they say the one that's vodka, peach schnapps, orange juice and cranberry juice. Or the one that's Bailey's and amaretto, topped with whipped cream.

    In cocktails and drinks, like some people say its more cheap for bars to use a lot of ice, but I mostly want to see how its done, what it has and how it tastes, not how much I get it. I respect bartenders!
