Today on The Speakeasy, we round out book month with a visit from Robert Simonson, the author (most recently) of ‘A Proper Drink’. Simonson tells us all about cocktails, bar spoons, and the Internet.

A Proper Drink

“I think it’s inarguable that without the internet, the cocktail revival would not have happened […] In the beginning these bartenders who were interested in making old cocktails right had to go to eBay or old book stores, or flea markets to find the old cocktail books.” – Robert Simonson [04:35]
