Anyone who really wanted to start learning about serious cocktail stuff, and did so or came of age at places such as Milk & Honey, Pegu Club, and yes, Bemelman's et al., knows the name Gary (Gaz) Regan. 


The author of such seminal cocktail/booze books as The Joy of Mixology and The Bartender's Bible, he was both a legend...and legendary.


RIP - and we'll raise one of your favorites, a Negroni, to you tonight Gaz.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

I just played with and enjoyed some some egg white in his honor.


Only he could justify writing "J├Ąger" and "single-malt scotch" in a single line of his book. (N.B.: Do not mix.)
