Author, The Little Book of Whiskey Cocktails
This week, Ira spoke with Bryan Paiement, author of The Little Book of Whiskey Cocktails (published by University Press of Kentucky). In this shaken or stirred episode of Ira’s Everything Bagel, Bryan talks about how his passion for cocktails developed after a trip to his garden; the popularity of the Old Fashioned and Manhattan due to a TV series; why, geographically, whiskey is spelled with an “e” and not with an “e”; when do you shake and when do your stir; his top five cocktails; the most complicated cocktail to make; and why he wrote the book, which includes original recipes.
Bryan Paiement a professional bartender at the Dunraven restaurant in Estes Park, Colorado. He is the author of Sports Bar: Cocktails and Sports Trivia.
