In case you missed it: Here is link to this morning’s Food Talk with John & Max on KNPR’s State of Nevada: (Stay tuned to the end to hear them mix (and ELV taste) three cocktails in the KNPR studio. Yep, drinkin’ on the job. Again.)

AIR DATE: December 10, 2010


While celebrity bartenders haven’t quite caught up to celebrity chefs in public awareness, their craft is still growing in popularity. John Curtas talks to three of the valley’s best-known “mixologists,” who discuss some of the details of what they do and what makes a great cocktail. Then they demonstrate with some sample drinks for Mister Curtas!
