If you don’t know our next guest by now, you haven’t really been listening to Lush Life. I quote him incessantly, because he is the one, the only, James Beard award-winning, for the first-ever cocktail book no less, cocktail historian extraordinaire, the Dean of Cocktails – David Wondrich!
If you want to know the history of the cocktail you are sipping right now, David is the one to ask. Author of Imbibe, Punch, Esquire Drinks, co-host of drinks podcast Life Behind Bars, and so much more. He is one of my idols and here with me today!
On today’s episode, you’ll discover:
- Why the year 1999 is so important in cocktail history
- Why we need our neighbourhood institutions so much
- His top tips for the home bartender
- Where he would drink right now if he could
- What cocktail we started off the interview with
