1. “That’s the Indian version of grenadine. This one is actually Alicia’s (another bartender who also shares the house). The only time I’ve ever bought it, I did an event at the Halekūlani and made an Indian cocktail. So I used a very little bit of that, made a curried rim and used Bombay Sapphire. It came out phenomenal.”
2. “The lychee is another one of Alicia’s experiments. She’s trying to make a shrub (a drinking vinegar).”
3. “Best dressing ever. I love that stuff. I put it on salads or whatever cut up veggies for dip. The original Bob’s Big Boy in L.A. does a classic car meet every Friday. It’s super old school.”
4. “I have a bunch of jams—I’m on a mission to perfect a Monte Cristo. Because nobody out here makes it. When I lived in San Francisco, there were a bunch of spots that made killer ones. The one that I remember the best was this spot called Mama’s. They put the sandwich together, [dip it in] batter, cut the sandwich into triangles and just cook it on the flat top. I can’t compete. They use their own blackberry preserve they make in house. It’s phenomenal. I do a poor, white-trash version.”
5. “There’s usually lots of fruits and vegetables because Alicia juices a lot.”
6. “I have no idea what that is. I’m going to blame that on Alicia.”
7. “We bought eight of those [beers] for Pint. When there were two left, some regulars bought the last two and gave me one.”
