The Coveted B1 Annual Trip

How lucky are we...

There I was staring down Bourbon Street at 5am thinking to myself, ‘these boys know how to party’.

It all started about a year ago at 4am on a Friday morning when I was driving the senior (old) guys of the Bartenderone team to the airport for the first annual trip or should I say drinking tour. I realized how badly I wanted to be on the next one myself when I recieved a phone call about 8 hours later with the entire semi-sober team telling me how much fun there were having.

Barback “the backbone of a great bartender”

Running-Back

A running back in football breaks a tackle and runs the whole field for a glorious touchdown run, but no one reflects on the vital block thrown by the fullback that made it all possible.

A lawyer makes a break in a big case and becomes an instant legal star, but who thinks about the members of their team who did all of the vital legwork behind the scenes to make the big break happen?

Falernummmmmmm…

What is Falernum?

What is Falernum?

Falernum – really the name seems to just roll off the tongue right? Emphasis on the num part here or should we say the ‘yum’ part because here at BartenderOne there is nothing better than a bit of quality homemade Falernum in your Caribbean style cocktails.
