David RothRecipes and Musings by David Roth, Cask Bar & Kitchen, NYC

“In the Mindful Mixology module, I was reminded to taste the spirits I’m working with and balance in my drinks is something I always strive for . . .

“The Mindful Bartender module was very helpful to me. In fact,I feel like it was designed specifically with me in mind. This module addresses the issues and challenges I have with mentally preparing for work. I have taken the tips like meditating before work to help me prepare for my shift . . .

“I definitely have my more mindful days than others but now I am thinking about it more and I hope that it will become routine sooner than later. Everyone wins when the bartender is practicing mindfulness. Everyone! Your class was just the thing I needed.”
