Thank you to the House of Suntory for partnering with Half Full and sponsoring this Bartenders At Home cocktail video.
What inspired you to create this cocktail? “I wanted to create a cocktail that made you think of simple and easy times. One that could be created at home, with interchangeable ingredients.”
What music would you pair it with? “Funk. It’s a fun cocktail that excites your mouth! So why wouldn’t you pick music that also excites your feet?”
What food would you pair it with? “Something delicious. I think this cocktail can adapt to any situation.”
Name the person (dead or alive) you’d like to make this cocktail for. “Gilda Radner. She seemed like a cool chick and I would love to share a cocktail and a laugh with her right now.”
