Bitters and the Manhattan with Robert Hess

Auf Smallcreen Network gibt es seit einiger Zeit eine Reihe von Online Demonstrationen über Cocktails und ähnliches. Der Mastermind hinter diesem ist kein geringerer als Robert Hess und in der erst küzlich veröffentlichten Folge widmet er sich dem Thema "Bitters und der Manhattan Cocktail"(auch wir widmeten uns diesem Thema schon des öfteren!).

Er erklärt sehr schön warum es so wichtig ist Bitters(speziell in einem Manhattan) zu verwenden und gibt einige Einblicke in die Geschichte von Bitters und deren Gegenspielern in diesem Drink.
Das sich unsere kleine Bittersmanufaktur im Süden des Landes als würdig erwiess, sich neben die "Bigplayer im Bittersgeschäft" gesellen zu dürfen, sorgt für freudige Stimmung.
Wie mir Robert kürzlich mitteilte ist in Zukunft die wöchentliche Ausstrahlung einer neuen Episode geplant.

George hat gesagt…

Are you joking?

It is so obvious that Drinkboy has never worked behind a bar. Shaking a manhattan???

His choice of Last Word, and probably the next will be the Bijou, demonstrate that he is a home mixologist only. No-one drinks this shit.

I wish he would just stick to his day job (Microsoft).

Museum of the American Cocktail: FUCK OFF!!!

Joerg Meyer hat gesagt…

Is it that George thinking arround and not working behind a bar as a bartender ...?

Stephan Berg hat gesagt…

george, this is the way we know you.
Punkrock!!!
actually everybody knows that robert never worked behind a bar and also that he makes a lot of mistakes a professionell bartender would be ashamed of.
but anyway, he still gets people start thinking and that`s what it is all about.
make it better george-we will support you!

by the way-can you read german or are just targeting the headline?

Robert Hess hat gesagt…

George, George, George... I think you need glasses. You will NEVER see me shaking a Manhattan. (Unless it is to illustrate why you shouldn't shake a Manhattan) Go check that episode out again. :->

I make no bones at all about the fact that I am not a professional bartender. But then neither was David Embury, and likewise I don't believe Julia Child ever worked professionally at a restaurant.

I never have been able to figure out why you tend to take such an abrasive attitude all of the time.


Stephan, thanks for the support. Your products rock.

Goncalo hat gesagt…

Bar is not about the perfect drink. That can be made in a small room all by yourself.

Who will be judging a Bar on the quality of the served peanuts ?

Beside the reference on Embury's book, there's also Charles Baker and Wiliam Grimes' Straight Up Or On The Rocks for knowledge between the lines for a great Bartender.

None of those were Shakers !?
