The Internet wins again.

Bartender culture is evolving thanks to social media.

Now, you don’t even have to leave home to be the life of the party.

According to VinePair:

A host of influencers in the alcohol space have launched Instagram feeds devoted solely to cocktails.

Established accounts like Beautiful Booze, Gastronomista, and Apartment Bartender have tens or even hundreds of thousands of followers.

Some are paid to create recipes, or sent on trips around the world sponsored by liquor brands. Others are given free samples to feature in cocktail posts or Instagram stories…

Drinkstagrammers are reinvigorating the craft and its community, bringing geographic diversity and homegrown enthusiasm, and posting thousands of cocktail images every day.

Many live in places that don’t have upscale cocktail bars, and they reach audiences who might not have the time, money, or inclination to go to leading cocktail bars.

So my friend Matt @theamateurmixologist came up with #peacepours for #worldpeaceday No fancy cocktail for me just a simple glass of whiskey which was my dad's favorite drink. You'll understand a little later. • First a little family background. Both my parents are from Hiroshima. My mother as a little girl witness the mushroom cloud from the atomic bomb. If she was closer to ground zero I would not be here today. I lost an uncle from the radiation poisoning. He lived until his 30's but his body was slowly deteriorating year after year. My cousin lost his dad at a young age. So this concept of World Peace isn't a word or a thought to my family but something we strive to actively achieve. • I dedicate this post to my father, my mother and my mentor. Three people who have shown and taught my what it means to fight for World Peace. They have taught me World Peace is not something we think about one day out of the year but something we need to strive to achieve each and everyday. They taught me World Peace begins we me. How can we talk about World Peace is we don't have that at home, at our workplace, at school, with our families, with our friends. They have shown me what it means to listen to someone, to respect someone, to care for someone. To help someone become happy and create these bonds of friendship. They have challenged me to think what am I doing today to help achieve World Peace? Yes, today is World Peace Day but the fight for World Peace does not end at midnight. • Thank you to my father, my mother and my mentor for dedicating your lives for World Peace. I promise to follow in your footsteps and carry on the fight for World Peace.

#OneBottleWeek w/ @redemptionwhiskey, Pt. 3 . Everyday this week I am posting a different cocktail recipe using rye whiskey as the base spirit 🥃 . About a month ago a few friends came over for drinks and one asked for a "Catcher in the Rye" 🤔 After some searching around on the internet, it appeared that several different people had thought of naming a cocktail after this 1950's novel (it was kinda destined to be a whiskey cocktail name anyway) so there are several varying recipes out there. This one sounded good to me, plus I just picked up a bottle of Cynar, so I went with it. Try it out for yourself and let me know your thoughts! . Catcher in the Rye . 2 oz @redemptionwhiskey Rye ¾ oz Dolin Dry Vermouth ¼ oz Cynar ¼ oz Walnut syrup (I subbed in Demerara) 2 dashes of Peychaud's bitters . Combine ingredients in a mixing glass and stir with ice. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with an orange peel ✌🏼 . #highproofpreacher #redemptionwhiskey

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere right? Well look at that, it’s 5 o’clock here! ⏰ . Joking aside, I honestly had no idea what time it was when I shot this as I was more focused on not dropping the glass while my other hand was holding/operating the camera. Still loving this classic @jordwatches in all it’s wooden glory, helping to remind me when it’s socially acceptable to start mixing. On my IG story last night I promised this recipe so here ya go, I highly recommend: . HORA DORADA 🌅 (Golden Hour) 1.5 oz anejo tequila .5 oz @soltadotequila (anejo that’s been infused with Serrano peppers and cinnamon) 1 oz @amaromonte .75 oz grapefruit juice .5 oz lime juice .5 oz agave nectar Shake \ Serrano pepper and grapefruit wheel . I guess #amaroweek is still on the mind because I wanted to play with one in a tequila cocktail. Monte does so very well because of it’s orange and floral notes (which mimic an orange liqueur like Cointreau). If a Paloma and a spicy Margarita hooked up in Italy, this would be the result. Salud! . . . . . #tequila #margarita #tequilacocktail #tequilatime #paloma #jordwatch #myjord #mensstyle #watch #esquire #quittintime #spicy #cocktails #cocktail #craftcocktails #happyhour #cocktailtime #imbibe #imbibegram #mixology #handcraftedcocktails #drink #drinking #liqpic #instagood #supercall #madewithmonte #amaro #barrelageddad
