Quality vs Quantity
The other night a wonderful patron came into my bar, nad ordered a drink. As I started to mix his drink, I reached for my measuring cup. “Oh no, Man!”, said my guest. “Don;t measure it! I want a good drink.”
‘Good” to this gentleman meant an overpoured drink apparently.
As I continued with the drink. I explained, “The reason I am using the cup is to ensure you get a GREAT drink, my friend. I want every flavor to be balanced and perfect this time and every time you come to my bar. Trust me you won;t be disappointed.” He wasn’t. Thanks Ture Believer!
I kept thinking about this chat after my shift.
What if the chef in the kitchen didn’t measure the salt in the soup?
What if the carpenter didn’t measure the cut?
What if the doctor didn’t measure the anesthesia?
See my point? I want each person to have a cocktail experience that rivials all others. I want everyone that come in for one of my drinks to be taken on a mixological journey. That is my job as your bartender.
So how about a drink?
