Well, its finally happened. I'm now live at the contributing writer on whiskey for About.com. I've kind of put this blog on hold while I've waited for everything to move forward with About before I made any decisions as to what to do with this blog. As it is, I've decided to keep it up and running, although I'll probably migrate it off of blogspot in the next year or so. As it is, My Life on the Rocks will continue with press releases, spirit reviews, and cocktails with the exception of whiskies which I'll focus on exclusively at About.com.
So that means gin, tequila, rum, amari, liqueurs, cachaca, and even vodka will continue to be covered here, albeit probably not as often as I used to. I still play around with cocktails a bit, and those will make an occasional appearance here as well. I've really started to focus my interests though to spirits themselves, I still enjoy mixology but the story behind the spirits and the craft of making those spirits has a great appeal to me.
Thanks for all of the support. I'm taking a bit of a break from bartending to focus on the writing for a bit, but I'm sure I'll end up behind another bar sooner rather than later. I'm pretty excited about the About.com opportunity and I want to make the most of it. Look for me there under cocktails and spirits.
