  1. Naming Cocktails

    The Rogue Gentleman's newest craft cocktail, the John Mayer by John Maher. You see where this went wrong, don't you?Apologies for this horrific oversight.Craft Blowjob (revised) Ingredients: one juniper seedling, one heritage calf (prefer Dutch Belted), heirloom potato seeds Prepare as usual. Top juniper-infused vodka with dollop of whipped cream. Serve up. Now you're talkin'. Selling cocktailians vodka as "wheat white dog" or "rye eau de vie" is the new selling ginophiles gin as "juniper-infused vodka." My god. Pure genius.
  2. Naming Cocktails

    Incidentally, I tend to name my cocktails after music/songs/lyrics/bands or whatever happens to be playing at the moment. Most of the time, this happens after midnight with a record on.
  3. Do-it-yourself Barrel Aging

    We're doing a barrel aging program at TRG using used bourbon, rye, & wheat barrels from Reservoir Distillery here in Richmond. Our first ones are a negroni and Widows Kiss.
  4. The Last Word

    The guys at 15 Romolo in SF have done this. They called it "Last Rights" with a garnish of a cherry cross. Not too bad. But my all time favorite Last Word variation has to be another 15 Romolo creation called the "Fernetaboutit," subbing Fernet Branca for gin. Its a crappy color, but the fernet adds an amazing herbal complexity that is simply amazing. But Im a huge fernet fan, so maybe Im biased.
  5. Consulting Chef Opportunity

    So I was approached by a local restaurant to fix their food program. They are very newly opened, 8 weeks-ish or so. Ive gotten to know the owners over the past few weeks, as I started to go there for the bar + music. I also DJ there once a week. Anyway, Ive never done any consultancy gig before and am trying to find out what to charge for my services. If my background would make some kind of difference, my bio is in my profile. After some googling, it seems that its either A) priced per hour depending on area or B) priced as a flat rate, either weekly or monthly. Just looking for some more numbers to compare. This job would entail: - rewriting the menu - evaluating, fix, and maintain a more proper food and labor cost - train staff on new menu and procedures - fire/hire new staff if necessary - institute proper inventory procedures Thanks in advance for any info. - Chef Johnny
