I get asked that a lot, I have this little joke where I say that one day my parents left an open bottle of piña Colada in the fridge, and the rest is history! But in reality I don’t really know what drew me into this world, I just found myself interested in it more and more, and I started making cocktails (at home) almost 20 years ago, a little bit before legal drinking age (18 in Israel). Israel is a great place for a Mixologist, because as a huge melting pot and culture mix, you get exposed to so many spices and styles of cuisines, and you just can’t help but be inspired. The rest is pretty much my deep deep passion for this field and a lot of self teaching for a while, and then teaming up with other bartenders/Mixologists where we have a mutual inspiration during the creative process.

Picture this: a steamy night at the El Floridita bar on the outskirts of Havana, a lively mambo playing in the background, and yourself in the middle of a tropical paradise drinking a tart, icey cocktail that was created for none other than Ernest Hemingway. There is perhaps no writer who was a bigger fan–or more ardent supporter–of cocktail culture than Hemingway, author of classic American short stories, essays, and novels like A Farewell to Arms and Death in the Afternoon. From capturing the running of the bulls in Pamplona to thrilling African safaris, Hemingway shared his adventures with generations of avid readers–and he was always up for a drink.

Is there anything more disappointing than mixing yourself a cocktail at home and realizing you don’t have that last ingredient? A twist of lemon peel, a squeeze of lime wedge, or a sprig of mint just makes the drink. The best part of having a well-stocked home bar is that you’re always just a few minutes away from your favorite cocktail, whether it’s a Manhattan, Old Fashioned, or Mojito. A garnish garden stocks your kitchen windowsill or backyard with all the herbs, vegetables, and even citrus perfect for cocktails.

GarnishBlog.com had a post about using a milk frother to create lovely foam on sours and shaken drinks without wrenching your shoulders. I still do a wet shake, then usually a dry shake, but if I still can’t get the foam I want from the shaker, I use the milk frother to build it up. I personally haven’t seen it out in bars, but I would imagine that in a bar environment it could save the shoulders of the bar staff. At home it’s a perfect cheat that helps me make gorgeous sours in 15 or 20 seconds, rather than shaking for 30 to 60 seconds.
