    Yes, thank you. Get the basics down, figure out why the classics are the classics. Understand about balance, subtlety etc. I worked in a bar where the bosses were all excited about every misbegotten fruit bomb drink the beverage manager would put together and got mad when I didn't care. They couldn't understand my obsession with a properly made Martini. Small, very cold, good gin, Dolins Vermouth (4 or 5 to 1), orange bitters, stirred, with twist - done.
