Hi Jamie!  Just found out about this site about 5-6 months ago (thanks to the power of facebook) and I’ve definitely learned so much and you have influenced me a lot on different techniques.

My newest cocktail is called Chocolate Bacon Asylum, its my play on your Vessel 75.  Bacon infused Makers Mark, Bitter Truth Xocolatl Mole bitters, topped off with Orange Maple foam (I added orange zest) .  I have it featured on our Winter Cocktail list at Ris (  Lots of people find the drink intruiging but I have made my chef and my favorite mixologist very happy with it.  It’s an excellent drink, you might wanna try it:)


Bloody Mary Cocktail 1 Jan 2011

Shaking aerates the tomato juice giving it a lighter texture.  Some people want it lighter, although most people including myself want it fuller bodied.

My mix is asian inspired:
Wasabi, sriracha sauce, yuzu, sacramento tomato juice, celery salt, black pepper, worcestershire.

It’s so yummy, we called our cocktail “Bloody Wasabi.” I have it featured on our list at Ris ( with Ketel one and a cucumber garnish.
