Eater Maine has published an interview with Gingko Blue bartender Guy Streitburger.
What do you think of current cocktail trends? Are there some that you just say “no,” I’m not doing that?
The more weird trends there are, it makes people want to explore and try out all kinds of new things. I’m not a fan of fruity/sweet cocktails but some customers like those drinks, so I have to be able to make them. A sour apple martini is like fingernails on a chalkboard for me and for the longest time I didn’t carry anything apple so I could just say no. But now, if you really want it that badly, I’ll make it.
