Eric weighs in on the use of the word "mixologist" to describe someone who makes cocktails either professionally or as a hobby.

He does this by first taking a good, hard look at this word, “Mixologist,” both in terms of its historical usage and its various meanings and connotations. Then, he sizes it up compared to other words used to describe bartenders

Finally, he makes a case for why it’s a pretty good word - maybe not without fault - but certainly worth keeping around.
