Yes, these are the words that I hear ringing in my ears as I find myself reading the news that Forbes Traveler has sympathetically chosen to include me in its very illustrious list of Cocktail Movers and Shakers this year.

Another drink-slinger who’s putting the Pacific Northwest on the cocktail map is Jeffrey Mortgenthaler[sic], bartender at El Vaquero in Eugene, Oregon. “There are amazing drinks being made in this region right now and people don’t really know about it.” He’s doing his best to change that. Of late, his favorite drink is an Old Fashioned using house-made orange bitters and his own brandied cherries.

I’m honored, truly. Thanks, Kirstin.

    Ooops.

    I got sidetracked on my own thought and forgot to wish you a hearty congrats!

  • That’s very exciting. Congratulations!

    I know this is a very old thread but why in the world would anyone say such a dumbass thing?? I have been to both his establishment and yours. I can say that although different, both of you do an amazing job at cocktails. Hell I’d settle for a fraction of your talent or his. Watching me make a cocktail at home is like watching an old jerry lewis movie on acid… disturbing yet funny…
