Get some great insights and go deep into the world of craft cocktails on a brand new episode of The Speakeasy, as host Damon Boelte is joined by bartender/drink impressario and author, Greg Seider. His latest book, Alchemy in a Glass: The Essential Guide to Handcrafted Cocktails is full of original, ingredient-driven recipes for cocktails, mixers, garnishes, and bitters, this book by a cocktail expert for master chefs shows readers how to transform spirits and flavors into inspiring, mouthwatering drinks. In bars and restaurants across America, drinkers are being exposed to the artistry of the modern cocktail. Seider, who has created cocktail programs for top bars and restaurants in New York and Los Angeles, approaches cocktail creation as the art of understanding how flavors work together and develop over the course of a drink. Drawing on his experience developing cocktail programs for chefs such as Eric Ripert, Seider goes beyond recipes to show readers how flavors work, giving them blueprints for constructing a balanced drink. This program was brought to you by Michter's.

"The danger with a lot of cocktails is too many bitter components in a rink that knocks out complexity or flavors." [11:00]

This week on The Morning After, solo-host Jessie Kiefer starts the show off in style with a crazy tale from the Front of House. Soon after, she welcomes Dr. Dave Ores to the program. Dr. Dave (as many of his patients call him) provides medical care for the uninsured in the NYC area and runs the Restaurant Worker's Health Care Cooperative (RWHCC) as well as the Fresh Start Tattoo Removal Program. With the RWHCC currently servicing restaurants in New York City, Philadelphia, and New Orleans, he talks to Jessie about providing free or discounted health care to all restaurant employees. He goes on to explain that each month the restaurant contributes money into a common fund based on its number of employees and in return, their workers can see Dr. Dave for any kind of health concern they might have. Prevention is key! Tune in for a very informative episode and to find out how to help Dr. Dave's cause. This program was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.

"For healthcare, you want nonprofit because it's a different mission statement. In a nonprofit corporation, the mission statement... is to provide as much care as possible with whatever resources you have." [11:31]

"The reason why it (RWHCC) costs so little is because... you only pay money when something happens. With your private, for profit, insurance, if you pay them $1600 a month, they just keep it. If you don't get sick for 10 years, you don't get that back." [19:15]

"If you have nonprofit medicine, you have to make it function well." [23:31]

This week on The Morning After, hosts Sari and Jessie welcome from Pearl & Ash restaurant, general manager Branden McRill and wine director Patrick Cappiello. Starting off the show with a 'Currant' Food Affair, the duo bring up hot topics that have made recent headlines, including thoughts on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. After the break, Branden and Patrick share how they came to team up and have a hand in creating Pearl & Ash. Set in a challenging location in New York City, Patrick mentions how the restaurant pioneered the area but also that the neighborhood adds to the charm of Pearl & Ash. The guys explain that Pearl & Ash prides itself in its staff as well as its social media presence, both of which help to make customers feel like family once they walk in the door. At the tail end of show, Sari and Jessie point out the guys' love of danger, also known as sabering champagne, which perfectly leads to the first ever The Morning After Quiz! This program was brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.

"The philosophy to me with the wine program was that I want people to be able to come to the restaurant no matter who they are, no matter what their wine experience is, what their budget is, no matter what their particular desire that evening is, to be able to have many bottles that are enticing to them. [21:47]

--Patrick Cappiello on The Morning After

"I also think that you can take the methodology of the wine list and extrapolate it across the entirety of the restaurant to say that it is about the approachability and access." [23:39]
