Episode 000 - Episode Zero

Hello and WELCOME to the Modern Bar Cart Podcast.

I’m your host, Eric Kozlik, and I’d like to thank you for joining me for Episode Zero, where I’ll introduce myself and provide a quick breakdown of what I’d like to accomplish with this podcast.

First and foremost, this is a show about cocktails. What they are, how to make them, how to incorporate them into your life in a healthy way, and how to assemble an at-home bar or bar cart that will impress your guests and stimulate your own imagination.

I’ll be coming to you with a combination of short, medium, and long-form content about the most important and intriguing topics in cocktails. You can expect special guest interviews, a ton of great cocktail recipes and modifications, and a straightforward, intellectually curious approach to investigating cocktail-making techniques and concepts that sometimes get breezed over or outright ignored.

Starting out, many of these are going to be FOUNDATIONAL episodes, and we’ll be using the concepts established here in future episodes to inform the way we think about (and enjoy) our favorite cocktails.

Hopefully those teasers have you excited for the variety of topics we cover in just these first few episodes as we work our way through some of the most crucial starter info and go deeper into the mysteries and flavor magic of cocktails.

As always, you can get in touch with me by emailing podcast@modernbarcart.com, or by following @modernbartcart on Instagram. You can also stalk me there personally @quixologist.

That’s about it for now. But I’ll catch you in Episode 1, where we sit down with Alex Luboff and Jordan Wicker of the Speaking Easy Podcast to talk about the joys of home bartending.

Until then, remember: Drink responsibly and experiment boldly.
