What about becoming the perfect bartender to welcome your friends at home?
First of all, as for cooking, you have to choose the right products. Talk to your cellar man, you will discover so many differences between diverses whiskies, or gin, or vodka, or te-quila. As for the wine, there are so many details and flavors to taste ! Buy some local lem-onade, good bitter or tonic, those will make the difference.
