  • Thank you for listening *and* for writing about it on your site. Your blog is one of my “go to” cocktail reference sites.

    After I get through the run of episodes I’ve plotted out, perhaps I can use one of your original cocktails on an episode?

    Thanks again!

  • Thanks Kevin! and sure you can use one of my cocktails! Cheers! T

    These podcasts have been very good. I am enjoying them very much, and when I have had the spotlight rums on hand I have been like Pavlov’s dog bending to the power of suggestion and uncorking the bottles to play along. Put quite a dent in the Coruba and Rhum JM bottles the other day and I blame Kevin!
