Scientist McGee’s Drink Menu & Manual – 7th Edition, 2018

I’m pleased as punch to share the latest and greatest version of my home bar drinks menu with all the recipes – over 250!  The first edition of this endeavor was in 2012, and it featured about 75 drinks.  Since then, it’s more than tripled and you can notice the evolution of camera phones through all the photos I’ve taken – beginning with simply a Blackberry and moving along to an iPhone, then an iPhone AND Instagram – haha!

I apologize for it taking me two years to put the finishing touches on this 7th edition, but I’ve been busy drinking.

I hope you enjoy these drinks as much as I do.  Cheers!
