Hi! I'm Tyler.

I read about, write about, and take photos of cocktails & spirits. Why? Because I'm kind of nerdy and love learning, specifically, about the history, culture, and science of it all.

Join me on my booze-filled journey to get the latest cocktail trends, the best booze to buy, some cool recipes, and learn a thing or two. Learning is a lot more fun (and funny) when drinking is involved, I promise.

Mixing It Up


A proper drink at the right time—one mixed with care and skill and served in a true spirit of hospitality—is better than any other made thing at giving us the illusion, at least, that we’re getting what we want from life. A cat can gaze upon a king, as the proverb goes, and after a Dry Martini or a Sazerac Cocktail or two, we’re all cats.
