Common sense says that you should learn to make cocktails from bartenders. But who's to say the geisha down the block can't mix an awesome martini? (Side note: where do you even live?) Punch has started a sweet video series called "People Making Drinks" in which non-mixologists teach you to make great cocktails. It all began with a bodybuilder shaking up a Mexican Firing Squad, and has progressed to a retired Army officer mixing a Negroni and a firefighter making an Aperol Spritz... which ironically requires a flaming orange peel.
Punch has been rolling out a new edition about once a week, so keep an eye out for the next chapter starting Monday. And if you think your beekeeping buddy makes the best Manhattan in town, let this crew know ASAP.
