The Modern Bar Cart Podcast

Oct 30, 2023

In this nerdy deep-dive on the craft and science of Super Juice with bartender and cocktail competitor Mike Vander Horn (@cocktail.complex), some of the topics we discuss include:

  • What Super Juice is and how it has risen to prominence in both cocktail bar and home bar settings.

  • Different ways of formulating super juice, including recipes and methods drawn from Liquid Intelligence, a bartender named Nickle Morris, and a YouTube mixologist called Kevin Kos.

  • How to test the flavor of super juice against real citrus, and why this highly-engineered product seems to attract as many skeptics and purists as it does sustainability nerds and flavor geeks.

  • Where we stand in the sweeping citrus “movements” or “eras” that have influenced cocktail trends over the past several centuries.

  • And the tools and ingredients you’ll need to source if you want to incorporate this versatile new citrus ingredient into your professional or home bar.

  • Along the way, we tackle a question from the Discord Community about pH measurements, the best way to foil your bartender nemesis, South Jersey’s new signature cocktail, and much, much more.
