I'm a contributing editor at Imbibe magazine, and have written about spirits, cocktails & the culture of drink for the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, Serious Eats, and--oh, hell, a lot of places. I've also published The Cocktail Chronicles blog since 2005, which has given me a venue to geek out about cocktails way more than ordinary people should.
