The Cocktail Lovers Magazine Issue 49



Talking Sip & Guzzle with Steve Schneider– new podcast!

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


It’s the last episode of season six and have we got a great interview for you! We head over to New York to catch up with one of our absolute favourite bartenders/owners/humans, the one, the only Steve Schneider, talking about his latest venture, Sip & Guzzle.

But before we hear from Steve, we’re doing the usual: opening up bottles, dipping into a book and heading off to a cocktail bar to sample its goodies. The products in question are Linie Aquavit, a caraway-based spirit which dates back to 1805, then we put Ben Branson’s Seasn Cocktail Bitters to the test, seeing what characteristics the two very distinct bottles bring to non-alcoholic and spirit forward drinks.

Our book choice this week is Aperitif by Kate Hawkins and our bar review sees us falling for Dram, the recently opened, tardis-like spot in London’s Soho.

As mentioned, our interview is with the absolute G that is Steve Schneider. He tells us why he’s happy to be back behind the bar and why we should all be heading to New York to experience both Sip & Guzzle, the two unique experiences on offer in the brand new site he co-owns with fellow industry stalwart, Shingo Gokan.
