Welcome to my hubpages,what you'll find here is the work of a man who's spent far too much time in the company of cocktails. On top of hangovers, I inflict upon viewers my sense of humor - a far more insidious beast.

I'm Tom, I've worked in bars for many years. I'm full of alcohol-related advice, I hand out hangovers like there's no tomorrow, and I have the drink that's on fire.

I don't mean to describe an image of a demon publican to your mind's eye, I'm just a cocktail obsessed bartender with a penchant for getting excited about what drinks my customers might like.

And one of those drinks is on fire!

I also love music, to hear and create. I enjoy an ever growing range of musical genres from over the eras, and through the years I've added to an ever growing collection of genre based inspiration to the fruits of my own endeavours, with vibes ranging from utter nonsense to effective aural torture.

So wander on down this library of recipes, and wonder no longer how the hell to make all those great cocktails yourself, if you know something I don't then tell me, if you want to know something I've not written, try me!

        Cask conditioned Real ale, who makes it best? Is it one of those micro breweries local to you? Or one of the major producers like Sharps (we are talking English Real ale here, soz) or St. Austell. Who does it best?
