Spirited Drinks With The Cocktail Whisperer Warren Bobrow

Warren “The Cocktail Whisperer” Bobrow has lived many lives. After graduating from Emerson College in ‘85, he worked in television as an editor at PBS in New York City. That position led him to TV and radio engineering in Maine, but his heart just wasn’t in it. Unemployed and poor in Portland, before it was chic to live there, Bobrow took a job as a dishwasher and salad prep cook in a local restaurant, which ignited a passion for the culinary arts.

Canndescent Five Jar

If Adrian Sedlin- the effervescent and ‘crackling with enthusiasm, ever pragmatic man’, his brain postulating in an intense, Miles Davis- Be Bop fashion, …You’ve gotta keep up because he is going a mile a minute and if you can’t take it- well we have a another plan for you… It’s about the way that you feel. And that way or Tao, is very personal, it is very intimate, you’re in there along with your tribe. It’s going to be a ride like a freight train on a high mountain pass, in the middle of the winter. It is filled with deeply personal emotions. Cannabis tends to unlock those feelings. Is that light ahead the end of the tunnel or the future? How do you want to feel? This is what makes Canndescent brilliant and it’s the very best money can buy!

END OF CANNABIS PROHIBITION

INDUSTRY EXPERTS & INFLUENCERS SHARE THOUGHTS ON THE END OF CANNABIS PROHIBITION IN CALIFORNIA

Weed

Californians did it. It’s the end of a 100 plus year cannabis prohibition in California. Two thousand eighteen is off to an exciting start. What exactly does this mean? You no longer need a medical recommendation to purchase cannabis from a dispensary. However, you’ll need your ID proving that you’re 21 years or older to obtain cannabis recreationally. How much are you allowed to buy? There’s a daily limit of one ounce of flower and eight grams of concentrates. Edibles are capped at 100 milligrams of THC per item. Welcome to the world of legal weed. In honor of the occasion, MAGNETIC spoke with everyone from LA-based musicians Dynasty Electrik to MagicalButter.com   executive director Chris Whitener to share their insight about this momentous occasion. Here’s what they had to say!

Cancer Patient Discusses Medical Cannabis and New App

From being born in virtually subtropical Johannesburg, South Africa, Steve Stern spent his formative years in the temperate climate of Israel and then suddenly uprooted to sub-freezing Wisconsin just after the Yom Kippur War. After that, he landed a suburban life in Great Neck, New York. His NYC inflection is a dead giveaway of where Steven Stern is from, and it guides his direction in life, that entrepreneurial spark that comes from being from New York.

Cherry Popper

“I’ve found that the deep cherry notes of both Luxardo and Heering are a great complement and substitute for almond, allspice and passion fruit syrups.” Warren Bobrow, author of books such as Apothecary Cocktails: Restorative Drinks from Yesterday and Today, also points to the sweet nature of tiki cocktails as working in cherry liqueur’s favour. “I’m from the mindset of dry, and sometimes over proof rum over sweet, caramel coloured and heavily sugared rum in a tiki drink,” he says. “It’s the sweet stuff that is so memorable the next morning.” So he layers cherry flavours at the bottom of the glass and serves it with a straw for guests to “pull the sweet liqueur up from the bottom through the drier elements of the rum”.

Corgi Spirits: A Burst of London Dry Gin, from NJ

Warren Bobrow (Leica M8)

A most venerable beast, the favorite dog of the Queen of England, the Corgi Dog– agile, able, agreeable and friendly. To understand the breed, one must have an open mind because the Corgi Dog is a fast learner- but extremely independence minded. The same holds true for the pragmatic, friendly and highly ambitious owner of the new Corgi distillery located in an ‘up and coming’ section of Jersey City. If you’re coming from out of town, you’ll have to go way off the beaten path. Once there, you’ll find what appears to be a movie studio from the 1920′s. Painted an extremely dark color- the warehouse/distillery calls out to the adventurous, thirsty drinker in the midst of utter urban decay. The new Light Rail line, located beside the distillery is slowly bringing the thirsty and the curious out to the far reaches of the known universe. You might find it may be easier to take a car service out here. The turf is still highly industrialized and there aren’t a whole lot of sidewalks or casual walkers around these parts.
