Abraham Hawkins is a bartender at Dutch Kills, in Long Island City. Today on the studio he talks with host Damon Boelte to talk about his experience, cocktails, and even motorcycles and Hawaiian shirts! Explaining how he received his training from trying his first egg white drink, to working at Little Branch, a speakeasy based in the West Village of Manhattan in New York City, Abraham talks about summer drinks, gives us some amazing daquiri recipies, and tells us his favorite drink to make (hint: it’s very simple!). Abraham also updates us on the closing of Dutch Kills, and explains to us that although the bar is closing, the future is bright for his co-workers and their team. Don’t know what a michelada is? Tune-in to learn about this great summer drink! This program has been sponsored by Hearst Ranch. Thanks to Brothers NYC for this episode’s music.
“When I first go to a bar, I first ask for a daiquiri, Old Fashioned, or Manhattan. It explains how the bar makes their drinks.” [23:05]
