Spirited Awards Nomination

by on February 05, 2011

With Tales of the Cocktail 2011 on its way, nominations for the Spirited Awards are being solicited. With that being said, I’d love to get Fix the Pumps  nominated in the Best New Cocktail/Bartending Book category. I’m setting my expectations at a reasonable level, considering that it is my first book and was self-published, just being nominated would be a significant reward. Now, I’m not being pessimistic when I say this, but my chances of winning are most likely zip, zilch, nada. Why? Because there’s this great guy named David Wondrich (Esquire drinks columnist / editor, Ph.D in comparative literature, etc.) who put out a great book called Punch this year. You can head on over to the Tales Nomination Form to nominate Fix the Pumps. Thanks.

The swelling on my bee stung ear is approaching the comical mark. #beekeeping
Hey look, we've changed the way people think about cocktails. "Shake Your Way Into the Craft Cocktail Trend" drnk.ca/1p2mWIX
Can it really be called "craft" if it is made in a 10,000 sq ft bottling and packaging plant? drnk.ca/1DkAQ2I
.@susebraids comparing honey with sugar would be a better idea. I do know sugar works when my kids get needles vs no sugar (lots of crying)
.@susebraids I wouldn't discount it as parental bias, sugar is a known "pain killer" because it causes the brain to release dopamine
Getting stung in the ear hurts, I wouldn't recommend it. #beekeeping
@ryanfeeley cool, glad you enjoy the Abbott's Bitters. Wiser's 18 works well.
