No need to drink from a urinal.

I found an article in The San Francisco Chronicle newspaper reporting an upscale event where they served yellow “specialty cocktails” that “flowed from white ceramic urinals”. I saw no pleasure in a drink like that and It may me wonder what is the limit.

It instantly made me remember what Arrigo Cipriani said about what makes a good barman. Please take a few minutes to read both articles and share your thoughts with me.

THE EVENT AND THE URINALS:

and WHAT MAKES A GOOD BARTENDER ACCORDING TO ARRIGO CIPRIANI:

Just on a side note, you can read this article about a London bar infusing liqueur with Whale skin (yes, it’s true, they infused the same 2×5 cm piece of skin several times through out the year, also serving you an inconsistent drink). The bar got raised by the police because of this. I agree with the cops this time.

I would love to know your opinions or any interesting story to share regarding this topic.
