"David Wondrich is the writer and mixologist behind Alcohol (and how to mix it) , our categorized online repository of over 150 carefully-chosen classic cocktails and other alcoholic potions, many — eventually all — with odd little essays locating the drink's position in the cocktail culture. "I love this job," he explains. "It's allowed me to get in touch with my inner bartender. But seriously, my favorite part isn't testing the drinks, it's researching them — digging through old bar books, comparing recipes, that sort of thing. Not that I'm complaining about the testing." His favorite discoveries: the Hearst, the Presidente Vincent, and the Ramos Gin Fizz."
