In today’s Episode…

We’re going over three different questions from listeners. Check out the questions below and watch / listen to the video above for our thoughts.

As always, we want to hear from you! If you have a different answer (or know more than we do), please let us know in the comments. We’d love to learn from you!

Question 1, from Micah from Wisconsin:

“I am an amateur with a ever-growing home bar, but I love craft cocktails at many bars, lounges and restaurants, and enjoy trying to recreate them at home for myself. For some reason they never turn out quite the same, even when I am using the exact same brands and ingredients. Do you have any tips on how to best recreate a drink you got that you absolutely loved?
Am I just simply messing up the ratios of the ingredients? Maybe my techniques are off, or even my ice? Or is it maybe that the enjoyable atmosphere of the places just can’t be recreated properly at home, leaving me wanting more? Thanks for any tips you can give.”

Question 2, from Travis from Alberta, Canada:

“Hi guys, love the podcast! I was just wondering what you think is the best way to extract a juice or syrup from crab apples. I’m hoping to try out a crab apple whiskey sour this summer. Background info: Living in the cold north means citrus can get expensive so I wanted to try my hand at something I can grow locally since whiskey sours are one of my favorite drinks.”

Question 3, from Mark from Portland, Connecticut

“I’ve been hearing a bunch lately about how Booker and Dax used to “acid adjust” their citrus, especially orange juice, but I’ve been unable to find out what that means exactly and also how to do it. Any inside info?”
