Dark & Stormy – Playboy’s Sexiest Bartender of The Year

I was the first to hire Nicki as a model.  Soon thereafter, Playboy discovered her.  Man I’m good.

It is truly a rare day when someone who follows my salty words and rum soaked adventures doesn’t send me a note reminding me that I am living the life.  Normally I just chuckle to myself in agreement.  As a bikini baron and owner of Conch Republic Bikinis, I also quite often get pictures of girls in various states of undress wanting to be a model.  My friends can’t believe my wife let’s me do this.  Yes indeed, my life doesn’t suck, but I do it for you.

On those dark dreary days in Manhattan when the market is down and you know your bosses aren’t stepping up to bat for you for this year’s bonuses.  Or on a frigid cold morning in Ohio when the kids are late for school and the windshield on the mini-van is still frozen from the night before, I’m there for you.  I’m that go to escape from reality, that smile on your face.  I’m even willing to catch that hangover just so you didn’t have to.

Today, finishing up on last week’s drink on The Schooner Mistress, we’re going back to an original.  The Dark and Stormy.  This time, I’m making the drink with Nicki, Playboy’s Sexiest Bartender of the Year.  Check her out at Playboy.com.  For this video we’re in Key West Harbor. Soon after this video we headed into town for the last night of Fantasy Fest.  The things I do for you, my dear reader!

I’m looking for new cocktail ideas.  Drop me a line or comment.

    In Maine, where we’re just getting used to the idea of spring, I know where I can go to remember there is life after winter.

    Thank you Carl

      I feel you Dan. Cheers. I was born in Maine (Portland). Just put my son on a plane up there an hour ago. Now I can go to the islands!!!

    I just enroll myself into a bartending school and I get to attend some interesting bartending courses and classes with them. I am trying my best to be an aspiring bartender even though I have zero experience in it. It is fun so far because I learn a lot from the classes and I will give my very best. I am now looking for some bartending kit that is suitable for a newbie like me. I tried to do my research on it online and the search engine brought me to your post. I did found some informational websites online. Please post more information like this one. I am very thankful for this and I will continue to keep an eye on your website. Thank you so much.
