One of the things I like to do when I’m having a party in my house is to brag about my oh-so-mediocre bar skills I’ve picked up over the years. Most of the time the show runs smoothly and I get my “cheers”, but these days all my guests just want to see my new Chiringuito Cocktail Shaker… and who can blame them? Continue reading
