The Tinker

There are many incredible things to be said about the mythical creature known as Max, an engineer from planet Earth. It is true that he has enjoyed many adventures, and surprised so many people with his constant generosity and powerful left hand.

Max was not a man born into wealth, nor power, yet whenever anything is broken, powerful men seek him out. He fixes things. Usually with his left hand. Legend has it that he even fixed a local bartender’s cocktail.

It was a hot and humid evening, and Max was enjoying an ice-cold beer. However, he wanted something refreshing and balanced, so the bartender made him a gin cocktail. It was ok, but missing something, so Max suggested adding boomerang liqueur and this fixed the cocktail.

He made the suggestion while gesturing with his left hand. Enjoy the good vibes!

1.5 oz Tanqueray gin
.25 oz boomerang liqueur
.25 oz simple syrup
.5 oz lime juice

Add lots of ice and all ingredients to your shaker tin, then shake for 15 seconds and fine strain over ice, serve in coupe or rocks glass and garnish with lime wheel.

  • I started off working for non-profits, then teaching at charter schools in marginalized communities throughout Chicago, Oakland, CA and Portland, Oregon. My passion for learning, teaching and history is undeniable, but I was struggling financially, so I began moonlighting as a bartender just to make ends meet, and unexpectedly fell madly in love with every aspect of the bar business. For my squad and I, it is about so much more than making a great cocktail. It’s about memories, music, history and sharing those moments, ensuring you embrace the present, reflect on the past and securing a bright future.
