“The ideas of tools we use [at Booker & Dax] are basic – though the equipment is complicated can cause advanced issues. The way we view it as as simple as can be – we’re not pulling anything that’s exotic or foreign – it’s just a cleaner way to get to an end result.” [05:00]


“I would never make a daiquiri with clarified lime juice. There’s a time and place for clarifications.” [13:00]
