    You mean “bartender,” not “mixologist,” right? Only wussies say the latter.

  • Andrew Chalk

    Susan K: No. I mean mixologist. That is why I said it.

    Headline says, “Bartender,” wuss.

    The man’s name is Rocco. Not Rocky.

    Rocco is a genius! I suppose there is a difference between a Mixologist and a Bartender but in this case, Rocco is brilliant in both titles! One of my favorite things he did was making Campari Dust – how do you think of somthin like that? Go Rocco!

    @TheLuckyOne…umm, I’m pretty sure Rocco didn’t invent Campari dust. Mick Formosa and Ben Walsh should be credited.
