Like in the music or film industry, many artists revert to remaking classics from the past when current trends become exhausted. Mixology is no different as we continue to see more retro, pre-prohibition bars sprout roots.  However, technique and science can provide ramps over these plateaus and open eyes to new experiences. Art pushes technology, just as technology pushes art.

Molecular mixology continues to nourish my imagination and provide an unparalleled outlet of artistic expression from behind the bar. Molecular gastronomy tears down walls that used to confine the artist to only taste, sight, and smell. As Heston Blumenthal would attest, gastronomy invites the explorer to open up all his senses and tap into a more influential component, the perception of the mind.
