This site is the result of my curiosity and research.  I wondered about things — like why does Scotch taste different than bourbon, and how do you make a really good martini, and who was Tom Collins?  Since the Internet knows all and tells all, I began reading information available on whatever topic interested me at the moment.  Articles published here are what I wrote from what I found plus what I learned from much delightful experimentation.  Each tells its story in about 600 words so read, be educated, and go forth and experiment on your own.
