What is your favorite drink?
Gin martini, shaken, straight up, 4:1 gin:vermouth, slightly dirty, large olives (see picture right)What are you known for mixing up behind the bar?
The martini, also the Perfect Manhattan with a twist (or cherry for the chicks)
If you could have a drink with any 3 people, who would it be and where?
My gosh, there are so many but --1: J. S. Bach in the organ loft at Arnstad; 2: Abraham Lincoln (whom I believe was a teetotler) at his house in Springfield, Ill; 3. Ray Manzarek of The Doors, preferably at a keyboard so I could learn some of the versatile riffs.
The holidays are creeping up on us. What are you are you most looking forward to?
Spending time and going to hockey games with my daughter, who went off to college this past summer, leaving us in the early stages of empty-nestedness.
What are you most dreading?
The frenzied traffic.
