February 28th, 2018

This week on the show we talk with Mr. Philip Duff, who is among other things, director of education for Tales of the Cocktail.

Well we continue to talk about TOTC, as it became official last week, (Mid February 2018), that Gary Solomon Jr,Neal Bodenheimer of Cure and Cane & Table have taken over leadership of Tales.

We spoke to Gary Soloman and Neal Bodenheimer about all this on show #241, just 2 episodes ago. 

First, l want to thank some great people that chose to help support this podcast. As I mentioned on the previous episode, my family suffered a devastating loss recently. Things are pretty complicated right now…I have a special needs son, and all of a sudden there is one less parent to take care of him, so I wont be returning to my Bartending gig for awhile. I kicked off a Patreon campaign to help support this show. I want to thank Zeke from Chicago, Ryan, PM - Pooch. Also, our friend David Eden-Sangwell from the Bartender HQ podcast, Dylan, Hazel and the Gnarly Gnome from the Cincy Brewcast, a podcast about the Cincinnati craft beer scene.  And I also want to thank Dean and Leonardo for helping out.

If you’d like to support this podcast, go to, where you can hear the previous episode, with more details and find a link to the Patreon campaign.


Cocktail of the Week:

St-Germain brand ambassador Marlo Gamora turned me on to this drink. Its an upside down martini with a splash of St-Germain.

  • 2 oz of a good quality Dry Vermouth (fresh)
  • 1 oz Gin
