Thirty years of bartending, 30 YEARS ...."WOW "
Our Intrepid Mixologist and -"C.E.O." - Chief Entertaining Officer - Bruce Tomlinson -- will be having a few libations with Norman Ramsey, AKA (Stormin Norman)on February 2, 2008. Back in the day Norman was the head Bartender at Lycifer's in Indianapolis, IN.{don't let the name creep you out - the place was beautiful } It was a 4 level disco were Bruce started his lustrous career. Also joining the festivity will be Taylor Wilson. Taylor, Norman, and Bruce all worked at Gritzbies in the early 80's. Bruce's brother, Brian who will turn 50 this year was a 19-20 year old barback at Lycifer's, and will be bellying up to the bar for a few cocktails with the boy's. Instead of fish stories. It will be bar stories... I once served a drink this big......

We know, we know,,, Saturday, February 2nd, 2008 is also Pisco Sour day and Groundhog day.
So if Bruce see's his shadow you will be drinking Pisco sour's for the next 6 weeks.

To make a Pisco sour
1-1/2 oz. Pisco ( Peru rum )
3/4 oz fresh lime juice, in Peru they use limóns (Don't confuse these with lemons. These small tart limons are very popular and taste like key limes.)
1/2 oz simple syrup , made with 1/2 sugar,1/2 water
1 egg white
Add ingredients in to a Boston Shaker with one ice cube and shake hard and fast for 30 seconds,,,this get's the egg frothy,,,add more ice and shake for 15 seconds to get this cocktail good and cold... Now using your hawthorne strainer, strain into a chilled glass. NO ICE... Add a few drops 3 or 4 of Angostura Bitters on top of the froth and enjoy my friend,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, enjoy.
