I know it seems a bit late for this year-in-review stuff, considering that 2012 is already 1/12 over. But in defiance of convention, here's a retrospective of my work for The Kitchn, the cooking site where I am now a real, bigtime, bona-fide, professional cocktail blogger. A review of this year's work here at the Backyard Bartender is coming soon. Happy (belated) New Year!
I have a little house in a little city called Houston, TX. My house has a little backyard where I grow my own fruits and herbs, many of which find their way into one of my cocktails. The focus here is using local ingredients to make drinks that are fresh, unexpected, and most importantly, delicious.
