My first cocktail conversation focuses on the craft of ... cocktailing with Washington, D.C. bartender Deke Dune. (@deke_dc on Insta.) In this inaugural episode of Cocktail Conversations, I chat with Deke about the cocktail you can order to test a bartender's talent, the best cocktail bar in the country and whether it's ok for bartenders to drink on the job. Pour one back and press play. Then, send thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
