Someone described me as a mixologist the other day, which I refuted. Mixologists are creative drinks inventors who craft new, tantalising tastes through their intimate knowledge of flavour, aromatics, visual appeal and chemistry. I’m just a belligerent lush who merely insists on keeping ones gin and martini glasses in the freezer.
However, whilst trying to brew an earl grey infused gin, I caught myself creating what appeared to be the shabby lab of some gin-soaked mad scientist in my kitchen. Maybe there is a mixologist in me somewhere. But that mixologist is drunk.
