Martini vs. Martini with Educated Barfly | How to Drink

Leandro from Educated Barfly flew across country to make drinks with me, and we throw down martini's showing each-other our favorite formulations. Also we curse a lot it seems?


I'm visited today by my new best friend Leandro from Educated Barfly. He called me out in a video of his suggesting we hit up NYC and drop into a few of my favorite bars- sadly I was trapped in front of this camera all week and couldn't get out of my own bar- BUT he did drop by and we swap martini's. Not gonna lie, mine was good, but his was better.
