How to Drink in Hong Kong

In 2017 I went on my first international trip, and my first completely solo trip. I headed to Hong Kong. The ten days I spent there gave me a ton of personal fulfillment and growth. Suffice it to say, this country has a special place in my heart, especially as a bartender. If you ask…

How To Drink on a Cruise Ship

Becoming a “cruiser” is almost like learning a new language.
