IMPROPER BOSTONIAN, MAY 2014 "Hot Shots" article by MC SlimJB

The IMPROPER BOSTONIAN MAY 2014 "Hot Shots" article by MC SlimJB
features a Q and A with bartender Freric Yarm of the Russell House Tavern. One of the questions is "Cocktail that must die?" to which Mr. Yarm answers, "Those '70s drinks." 'I refuse to remember the difference between a Bay Breeze and a Sea Breeze."

The Bay Breeze is made with gin and the Sea Breeze is made with vodka. Both drinks feature a 2:1 ratio of grapefruit juice to cranberry juice cocktail.

This quote symbolizes craft bartending. Oh holy drinkmeister please forgive me for ordering a drink that you say you aren't required to "remember".

I might not "remember" to tip.

P.S. I have been tending bar for a good part of 30 years.
