and has sharpened my skills to become voted the "Best of the Best
Bartender" for 2001 and 2002. Kyle really shows you in a non-intimidating way how to make these cocktails with ease and confidence, and the bonus features are awesome. Not only should every bartender have one, but every party giver should own one as well. Check it out . . . This is more than 5 stars.
I can't wait for his next DVD to be available.
