John Mariani The Virtual Gourmet: What makes a Master Bartender?

Food and travel writer, John Mariani, publisher of the weekly newsletter, The Virtual Gourmet, never holds back on his opinion about food or service. When it comes to his favorite cocktails he’s easily frustrated by bartenders who can’t make the classics –or anything other than pour beer! He acknowledges not all venues cater to the high end cocktail crowd and takes us for a tour of great bartenders around the world and what one should expect from a Master Bartender.
