Very impressive (bonus points for the bois lélé!).

 

How do you plan on transporting your gear to the event?

Is that a Hoffman without a coil?

Sorry, I read it again. No it's not.

Merci!

 

The place is not even two blocks away, so just in a bunch of boxes I guess.

Yep, a box. Had the shakers stacked in each other, then shoved the spoons, strainers, and other such things inside. Pretty easy!

 

I also picked up a MUCH heftier bois lélé from the CK office today. Looks like it could beat back potential troublemakers - Not going to use my other, more delicate one in a commercial setting.

Cocktail Porn. Graphic content, to be consumed by cocktail geeks 21 years of age and older ONLY. There are no graphics, but it's graphic.

They sauntered in to my bar, short skirts, long legs, deep thirsts and shallow eyes. I stood behind the stick, oiling my swizzle stick polishing my rocks glasses. It was a slow Monday afternoon; my only company was Girls, Girls, Girls, the Motley Crew song playing over and over again on the broken jukebox. Hips rolling, like a pony kegs tumbling down a staircase, they made their way over to the barstools, and in unison each threw a leg over one, showing me their Amaretto Sharon Stone Sours. With more giggles than a 7th grade girl’s school Sex Ed class, they ask me “We hear you have a cocktail called LOVE, can you make it?"
“I have just the thing for both of you lovelies.” I reply smooth as 5 times rectified, 23 degree (F) Vodka with 25% dilution of triple filtered water that came from fist sized chunks of ice freshly pulled from a -3 degree (F) True freezer. “It will warm you all the way down, molten velvet dripping down to your diaphram…and send chills up your spine at the same time.”
I slide down the bar and grab a bottle of Mathusalem, it’s curvy neck feels good in my hand, like a sexy Smurfette. I construct Treacle, telling the Brunette on the left the story of the Treacle. How Treacle used to mean an antidote for poison, and that Treacle was what the Mock turtle ate in Alice in Wonderland. Her eyes gleamed as she lapped up the cocktail lore.
I flip a 30 oz metal shaker off the bar and it lands in my slightly moist hand with the sound of a naughty girl getting her just desserts. I usually give naughty girls a Dominicana (Rum, & Coffee Liqueur stirred then heavy cream floated on top) for dessert. The Blond on the right is aching for something creamy, but long, and stiff, something that will satisfy her cocktail lust. Into the shaker I contribute the luscious white of an organic, free range egg, three quarters of an ounce of fresh squeezed lemon juice-Led Zeppelin’s whole lot of love coursing through my mind “Squeeze My lemon, till the juice runs down my leg”-, an full, opulent ounce of simple syrup (one on one, vanilla the swingers would say), and two and a half ounces of Lairds Bondage Applejack, 100 proof (a cocktail doesn’t get much stiffer than that)...

 

Not sure how I got here tonight, but the search function is wonderful!  Tonight I've been working through Autumn in Jerseys, 3 ounces of Laird's bondage each.  Good as always, I must say, but in the grand scheme of things pretty lightweight stuff.

Laird's bondage

 

How does one acquire this? I guess Laird's Co. found me too vanilla—all they've ever given me is a t-shirt  :sad:

Ask Alchemist.

 

I wouldn't mind a t-shirt.  And somehow I think that I deserve it.

Offer them a Nipple Clamp? Granted, the ingredients involved may net you a brutal flogging.

The juicer looks great.

 

What model of mixing glass is that, and are you happy with it?

The juicer is insane, it got 2 oz of juice out of a middle-aged lemon with no effort. 

 

The glass is a CK Seamless flat-bottomed Yarai. I like it, though I've never used a proper mixing glass before. I just got one, as CK is releasing their "tall" XL versions soon, which are easier to hold in one hand than the standard XLs. I'll be getting two of those when they come out.

 

The ice tapper is great too!

An old martini pitcher with ice insert I picked up in an antique mall some time ago.
