Flaming Drinks add Effect….

Flaming drinks definitely pleases all due to its showmanship.  All alcohol's burn, usually a bright blue flame, however some better than others.  The higher the percentage or proof the better it lights.  Most cream based liqueurs, not so much so.  So don't waste your time on them. This is all about the show, and done right will have anybody eating out of your hands.  Some quick notes, make sure to extinguish the flame before you drink, it will burn all the way down.  Alcohol burns hot so don't use a cold glass, a sudden change in temperature could crack/ shatter the glass and ruin...

Tequila and Margaritaville…..

Before we get to some recipes, lets discuss the margarita.  This drink consists mainly of tequila, any orange flavor liqueur, such as triple sec, Cointreau or Grand Marnier, the juice of one lime or sweet and sour lime bar mix, ice and salt.  This is the basic margarita, remove anything and you might as well call it something else. Like the martini, there have become endless variations to the margarita.  Such as adding new flavors like strawberry, raspberry, mango or peach.  On the rocks or crushed ice, a slushy, using a blender.  Substituting salt for a sugar rim, for all you wimps,...

Travel the World with the Bartender…

As stated earlier, being a bartender has allowed me to travel the world and drink martini's on countless beaches .  I think it appropriate to share one of those experiences with everyone. Most recently my travels took me to Southeast Asia, a beautiful place called Phaic Tan . Hot, humid and covered in lush vegetation it's little wonder that Phaic Tan is often described as being 'the armpit of Southeast Asia'. Regular flights land at Phlat Chat airport or, if winds are strong, in a rice paddy within several kilometers of it.  With its crowed, chaotic streets and heavy traffic the best...

St Patrick’s Day…Cheers to Green Beers!

St Patrick's Day in North America brings to mind parades, shamrocks, and for many of us a rowdy night at the pub drinking green beer. However, you may be surprised to learn that in Ireland St Patrick's Day is a religious holiday...as the Patron Saint of Ireland,  St Patrick is credited for bringing Christianity into Ireland...and he wasn't even Irish! So how best to enjoy the ultimate "Green" holiday? It's all about throwing yourself into the celebration, embracing the fun, and dragging your friends with you! Whether you go out, or stay in, there are "must do's" to truly participate in...

The Bartender and The Life Coach are back! Episode 7:TDG TV

The Bartender and the Life Coach are back, this time dealing with the question of how to handle the changing dynamics of a long term friendship. Once again with our special guest Amber, we now delve into a personal situation she is dealing with...a friendship relationship that has changed in a way that Amber is not sure how to deal with. Our entire lives revolve around the relationships that we create with the people around us, from family and friendships to casual acquaintances and vocational (especially as a bartender and a life coach!) connections. How we "manage" these relationships...

Confused about my friend…Life Coach please help!

As the Life Coach, I am noticing a pattern...the consensus from our Drink Guy team is that, after watching Episode 7 of  TDG TV, an expanded version of my thoughts for Amber would be appreciated. A friendship relationship question is something we have all dealt with at some point, and it deserves some attention. It is difficult, between the length of the episode and sharing the stage with the Bartender, to really give a thorough answer...and you are probably figuring out that I like to be thorough! The question posed to us was simple...in a long term friendship relationship, when the...

Drinking Games…..

Since our Facebook Fan Page has a Drinking Game listed for the Oscars, I figured I better add a few to peak everyone's interest.  There are literally thousands of drinking games to be played, but these three will help you get drunk, get to know your friends or possibly get you a free drink from the bartender.  You also won't need any cards, which usually get wet or stuck together, or bottles or any other object that could be hurled at the loser/winner (however you choose to look at it). Sorry, you will need some quarters for one game. Let's start with Fuzzy Duck. I think a few know this...

Cyberstalking…Did I Cross that Line?

Dear Drink Guy... Cyberstalking So I was at my significant other's place the other day, and needed to use the computer. My SO told me to go ahead, so I did. When I sat down, I realized that they had a "social" site open that they had a subscription to, a site designed for singles. I knew I should just close it up, but instead I started to poke around. I found "chats" with other people that had started before we were dating, but had continued after we started seeing each other. (A couple months now) I was not happy, but also realized that I should not have been poking around. Now I don't...
