Why make things complicated when they can also be simple?
For some reason, I sometimes have the feeling that those who took the nerdy turn of cocktail making, myself included, believe that complicated is the synonym of good. This is what some wants you to believe because they want to feel like they do something house bartenders can’t achieve. But don’t be fooled, most of the time, the secret of a great recipe is simplicity. E.I. Most of the classic cocktails that been enjoyed all around the world for decades contains no more than 3 to 4 ingredients.
