It’s All About Giving Someone What They Want

“[At the Brooklyn bar] we were taught to build cocktails with our heart in place, to close our eyes and visualize ourselves as being content. And when we make a drink we remember that it’s a privilege to do what we do and that not everybody gets a chance to do that in our life. Anybody can mix a drink; a robot can mix a drink. But to actually have feelings when you produce that and put it into a glass and have somebody enjoy a piece of something that you created — few bartenders have that opportunity. At the end of the day, it’s all about giving someone what they want. They come there to see you. You invite them into your home. The bar scene can be a very scary place when it’s not done with love.” Anonymous.  Source:
