Whiskey snobs may say there’s a “right” way to drink the stuff, but just relax. Simoneau has seen every request, from a Laphroaig 10 year Manhattan (a cocktail usually prepared with rye) to Johnnie Walker Blue and ginger ale. Point being: You don’t always need to drink it neat.
Oh, but you are. You really, really are.
“Think of how much you’re learning,” my mother told me on the phone the other day.
That, I think, sums up best how things have been going lately.
