Bar & Food – Cocktail Videos

In conjunction with the launch of the book “Bar & Food“, Brasserie Appelmans in Antwerp hired me to make a series of four videos about their cocktail bar, Absinth Bar.

The videos explain the process of making four of their signature cocktails: the Espresso Martini, the Mint Julip, the Negroni, and the Pornstar Martini. They are featured on the Brasserie Appelmans website, but also in the book – readers are prompted to watch the videos by scanning QR codes.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

I did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge after being challenged by my uncle. I had fun making this video… but more importantly, I donated to the Mayo Clinic’s ALS research efforts.

Jonathan, AKA Tweetybird, is getting married. Sounds like a good reason to have some fun in Cologne, Germany.

A Country Lost, Then Found
