Cocktails on the Small Screen

There are dozens of blogs and media outlets that concern the art of the cocktail. Some of these are featured on the links section of this page. Most of these blogs are run by bartenders, amateur cocktalians, or owned by various liquor companies. However, a few business start-ups have entered the space, including the Small Screen Network (SSN).

The SSN specializes in "niche casting," consisting of short sub-10 minute programs targeted at the cocktail/beverage enthusiast. Their first show, "The Cocktail Spirit," is hosted by Robert Hess, cocktail expert and co-founder of the Museum of the American Cocktail. When not discussing cocktails, Mr. Hess interestingly hangs his hat at Microsoft as a Technology Evangelist. His short videos are a great way to learn how to mix quality cocktails quickly and properly, ranging from well known drinks like the Cosmopolitan to lesser known libations like The Last Word.

Other shows include "Raising the Bar," hosted by Bartender Jamie Boudreau, "Three Sheets," with comedian Zane Lamprey, and "The Liquid Muse" with mixologist Natalie Bovis-Nelsen.

In addition to the videos, the SSN also operates several entertaining blogs. For those of you with money to play with, they're looking for angel investors according to the webpage.
