KeeperCollection @KeeperColl @warrenbobrow1 Who/What inspired you to become an #author? #SommChat

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I had a dream, really! I was in a job that I hated for twenty years and I had to do something.. anything!

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I was inspired by @WildRiverJoy who is the founder of the Wild River Review. She is the toughest editor I've ever had

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl Question fr shy #SommChat peep: how long have U been studying #cocktails & what R biggest changes you have seen in last 10 yrs?

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat been studying cocktails since I was a boy 50 or so years ago. I was in #spain with my parents and I discovered sherry

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I've been studying #cocktails since I was quite young. they always interested me. I'm also a trained #chef.

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I've seen so many things.. most of all i just love when bars use fresh ingredients and fine rum like Mezan.

Kay Marley-Dilworth @ATXFoodnews Oooh, yes, I agree, @WarrenBobrow1! #SommChat

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl .@ATXFoodnews great to see you on #SommChat today with @WarrenBobrow1

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @PrimlaniKitchen @KeeperColl @canterburywine #SommChat #negroni is so hot right now in #russia... they can't get enough of this classic!

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @PrimlaniKitchen @KeeperColl @canterburywine #SommChat another new trend is authenticity. nostalgia and concentrated flavors.

Rashmi Primlani @PrimlaniKitchen @WarrenBobrow1 Can You Give us Some Cocktail Examples #SommChat @KeeperColl @canterburywine

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @PrimlaniKitchen @KeeperColl @canterburywine #SommChat a great one is the Old Fashioned made with @BarrellBourbon

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @PrimlaniKitchen @KeeperColl @canterburywine #SommChat #gin and Tonic always with Cane sugar instead of corn syrup tonic @QDrinks is amazing

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl @PrimlaniKitchen thanks for chiming in today on #SommChat

Adam Plotkin @AdamPlotkin Hey @WarrenBobrow1: love #Negroni but looking for something new. What's your fav non-Negroni #Campari #cocktail? #SommChat

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @AdamPlotkin #SommChat I just did one at the Moscow Bar Show in #Russia with freshly squeezed "charred" grapefruit, Campari and Mezan Rum

Adam Plotkin @AdamPlotkin Need to try this! #cocktails #SommChat

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl Q fr shy #SommChat peep: Do you only drink #cocktails and what are some of the most unique ones you have had @WarrenBobrow1 ?

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I love the Milk punches and Ramos Gin Fizz at @totc in #neworleans

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat shy. I love a fine glass of beer (usually from either Belgium or Maine) and I absolutely LOVE #wine!

TalesoftheCocktail @totc @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl Good choice! Any other cocktails from #TOTC you enjoyed?

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @totc #SommChat I love the Harvey Wallbangers and the Absinthe Frappes that were everywhere I turned.Tales is a unique event for all spirits

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl @warrenbobrow1 U R known as the Cocktail Whisperer? How did U get name & How did U become interested in writing abt #cocktails ? #SommChat

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I was writing for Served Raw in San Francisco. When the publication folded, they owned the site: Cocktail Whisperer

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat They gave me the name Cocktail Whisperer when I worked for them. at the end I owned the name.

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I am in many ways a cocktail dreamer, but a whisperer works very well too for my unique personality!

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I was a rum judge for Ed Hamilton in 2010 with the Ministry of Rum. He opened my eyes! #rum #ministryofrum

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl Q fr shy #SommChat peep: what types of #wines do you prefer and do they correlate at all with your love of #Cocktails ? @WarrenBobrow1

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat no.. I think #wine tells a much different story, like #bourbon tells a different story from Scotch.

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I prefer wines that speak of the soil. I grew up on a Biodynamic farm so nonmanipulated wines are my preference

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl have questions about #cocktails ask them now to @WarrenBobrow1 #author on #SommChat

Douglas Trapasso @demilove @KeeperColl - Good morning from Chicago! I need a drink! - #SommChat

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl great to see you @demilove and look fwd to your #cocktail questions today on #SommChat

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl @warrenbobrow1 What research did you do for ur latest book Bitters & Shrub Syrup Cocktails published via @quatrocooks ? #SommChat

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I made all the shrubs for my book. it was amazing and I've never felt so #healthy

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I did a lot of historic research from the #Food Timeline and the Oxford Encyclopedia of Food/Drink in America

Douglas Trapasso @demilove @KeeperColl - How can a cocktail newbie get started learning about cocktails, esp. someone who is used to wine/beer? - #SommChat

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @demilove @KeeperColl #SommChat #SommChat start simply. not sweet, but savory.. questions? connect and ask me!

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl @warrenbobrow1 How long did it take you to come up will all the recipes in ur latest book? #SommChat

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat it took me a month! that's all I had to write the book! @QuartoCooks the recipes were working for months prior

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl Q fr shy #SommChat peep: how does using bitters and shrubs change the taste and texture of a #Cocktail ? @WarrenBobrow1

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat great question! it changes the complexity and depth, but the context is healing of the gut. vinegar is good for you!

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat vinegar also is a preservative it makes fragile fruits last longer from the low ph and high acidity of the vinegar

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat vinegar is essential for the low ph and long life. #shrubs are three ingredients. fruit (or veg) sugar and vinegar

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl 2nd q fr shy #SommChat peep: how have you used your knowledge as a trained #Chef in creating #cocktails ?@WarrenBobrow1

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I think like a culinarian, flavor comes easily to me and my formal training as a cook is essential to my life.

Courtney Cochran @HipTastesMaven @WarrenBobrow1 How do you define "balance" in the context of cocktails? #SommChat cc @KeeperColl

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl @HipTastesMaven great question for @WarrenBobrow1 on #SommChat glad you could add to the mix today!

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @HipTastesMaven @KeeperColl #SommChat balance the savory quality that plays alongside sweet flavors. #bitters are essential to tie it all up

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl @warrenbobrow1 Tell us some of ur secrets in making the perfect #cocktail . #SommChat

SAHMmelier @SAHMmelier Catching up on #SommChat hello all!

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl q from shy #SommChat peep: how do U decide which specific "namebrand" spirit 2 use N #Cocktail -what do U think of artisinal vs large co?

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl .@WarrenBobrow1 how do you keep up with all of the new artisinal #spirits on mkt and at what point do they become too large for U #SommChat

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I specialize in small producer players. always preferred #Craft spirits and made my success here. I do not cover big

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl #SommChat I keep up with the small players because they are my friends..we are all in #craft together. I'm all about Independent

SAHMmelier @SAHMmelier @WarrenBobrow1 #SommChat love to use herbs in cocktail but muddling renders them less attractive. Tips? Steeping? Muddle,drain,garnish?

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @SAHMmelier #SommChat I like to slap my mint. put it in your hand and clap the other one against it. this releases the oils softly.

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @SAHMmelier #SommChat I also recommend infusions. then garnish with fresh herbs.

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl @warrenbobrow1 what are some of your favorite #food and #cocktail pairings? #SommChat

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @KeeperColl food and cocktail paring, #SommChat I love #Cheese with @CaledoniaSpirit gin..also @BarrellBourbon w/barbeque!

Douglas Trapasso @demilove @KeeperColl - What basic equipment do I need to start a bar (probably just for myself at first - not entertaining much) - #SommChat

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @demilove @KeeperColl #SommChat I'd get to @thebostonshaker and put yourself into their hands. they can make your life easy!

Warren Bobrow @WarrenBobrow1 @demilove @KeeperColl @thebostonshaker you'll need a good shaker, a good glass mixing vessel. meddler and

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl @warrenbobrow1 What did you do before you became a #Cocktail #author? #SommChat
