What’s shakin, cocktail fans?
Welcome to episode 122 of The Modern Bar Cart Podcast!
This is a very special episode. It’s kind of a behind the scenes look at what the research and development process actually entails for people in the cocktail world like myself. I’m joined by my good friend and cocktail colleague Charlie Berkinshaw of Element Shrub, and together we debrief a video series we spent about 12 hours over the course of two separate days filming.
In this series, we work our way through the four most common acids you’ll encounter in the cocktail world: citric, acetic, mallic, and lactic. Now, there’s a good chance you’ve heard some or all of those words in some context before, whether it’s on the ingredient panel of some food item or in a high school chemistry class. But, we’re examining these compounds through a strictly mixological lens so that you can understand some of the things going on below the surface in your favorite drinks.
