The Mixology Talk Podcast, Episode #167

If you saw the last episode, you know how Chris feels about hot cocktails. Now it’s time to set him straight! Chris is chatting with bartender Bradley Thomas Stephens who has some great tips for making delicious hot cocktails for service – and avoiding the pitfalls that drove Chris crazy!
o hear his tips and tricks for making infusions work, even in a high volume bar.

But before we go too far, here’s a bit more about Bradley, from Bradley himself!

I have 9 years’ bar and 25 years’ restaurant experience. I have worked in every type of bar and restaurant you can imagine, from local dives and corporate chains, to boutique hotels and world class whiskey bars. I’ve mixed drinks in more than a half dozen states here in the US and abroad in Tokyo and Helsinki. An old nickname I once had was “Brad from Everywhere” and I’ve taken those experiences with pride and share them with everyone I can.

I am passionate about hospitality and classic cocktails from other regions of the world. Maybe I’ll write a book someday, but until then just come see me at the bar and see what I’m experimenting with now.
