Welcome to MDR Labs! The idea behind this blog began a while ago. A friend of mine, Jason, had become interested in classic cocktails, mostly from the (pre)prohibition era. While we hang out on frequent occasions, we only really drink on New Year’s Eve. As he’s built his home bar, he’s rediscovered old recipes, stocked many different types of alcohol, practiced his mixing techniques, educated himself on many of the drinks (and components) histories, and honed his skills. And on NYE, he has been providing mixed drinks to the party that I host for the last couple years.
