I've started mixing drinks lately. Making more complicated cocktails for friends and family and I was wondering if anyone on here does this or has ever bartendered for work?]

 

Any favourite recipes? Hints? Tricks? Tips?

Yup, used to run the bar in a Michelin 2-star restaurant.

 

Learn the WHY's behind cocktails, what the names mean, why they go together :)

Wanna share a fav recipe? Have any cool twists on an old classic? Is there any drink you find people always get wrong?

Always remember being at a bar that hailed their ability to make any cocktail, bloke asked for an Eskimo cocktail and had them buggered. :)

Years ago though, long before cocktails became generally popular over here.
