Adventures in Cocktails

The Chanticleer SocietyWelcome to "DrinkBoy". The DrinkBoy website was one of the first sites to promote and provide insights on "Craft Cocktails". Many hearald it as being one of the main reasons bartenders as well as customers have embraced cocktails as a cuisine instead of just an alcohol delivery vehicle.

The Discussion Continues

Early on, one of the key benefits I was providing was my discussion forum on the now defunct MSN Groups site. When that site went away, I rethought the overall concept of the discussion forum and rebranded it as the "Chanticleer Society" to embrace more of a community approach. We are still carrying on great discussions over there, so please stop by and join the community! (http://www.ChanticleerSociety.org)
