Note: Since this forum is dealing with alcohol, please be reminded of two things: -This thread does not condone underage drinking. Alcohol is only to be purchased and/or consumed by people above the legal drinking age for alcohol. -This thread also does not encourage negligent drinking and alcoholism. Please drink responsibly! That being said: Anyone here dabble in the art of making cocktails? I consider myself an amateur bartender/mixologist. I started because of a combination of my dad having an expansive liquor collection and my uncle giving me a complete set of bartending equipment for my birthday. I personally love bartending because of the ritual of the activity, and because I feel like an alchemist or a potions master while doing it. It doesn't hurt either that the finished product is delicious.
