    17. 27. Me as I really am…
    18. 28. Or… actually, it’s more like this:
    19. 30. How do we confirm this for ourselves?
    20. 31. Usually it’s: ME OBSERVING OBJECT, PHENOMENON OBSERVATION
    21. 32. But, the Trick is: Self-Observation
    22. 33. ME OBSERVING SELF & OBJECT, PHENOMENON AT THE SAME TIME !
    23. 34. Or, more simply…
    24. 35. Me, working…

    32. 43. … In the Morning, we start our day… … the News suck…
    33. 44. Clog of negativity
    34. 46. … Then a phone call from work … “ the other Bartender is sick. Can you work a double today?”
    35. 47. … sure, we say yes. But inside we are not happy…What about our plans? Did he HAVE to get sick today??? Poor me…Blah, Blah, Blah…
    36. 48. Clogs of negativity
    37. 50. Traffic sucks too… The President is in town. You are late for work…
    38. 51. Clogs of negativity
    39. 53. … Finally, at work instead of OR…
    40. 54. … We feel like…
    41. 55. … we are shoveling coal all night…
    42. 56. … and then we look for remedy in the wrong place…
    43. 63. … and very soon, it’s the usual terror of the situation!
    44. 64. And at the end of the night…
    45. 65. Sad…
    46. 66. Can we change this?
    47. 67. Yes! Easy…
    48. 68. … In the Morning, we start our day… … enjoy or coffee, juice. Focus on the positive. The News is always the same…it is always bad…
    49. 70. … Then a phone call from work … “ the other Bartender is sick. Can you work a double today?”
    50. 71. Sure. I’ll be there. “Oh Well…Poor Steve with a flu. Too bad I need to cancel my plans for the night. But Steve is in trouble and he needs me to help him out”.
    51. 73. Traffic is jammed… The President is in town. It seems that you’ll be late for work, there isn’t much I can do about it…I better call and let them know.
    52. 75. … Finally, at work, You Rock…
    53. 76. … and Roll…
    54. 77. You are not emotionally identified, and so you are not prone to drama…
    55. 78. You are observing yourself in Real-Time. Taking the suffering and imagination away.
    56. 79. And so…by the End of the Night… … And
    57. 80. … your battery is Full !
    58. 81. How will this affect me in reality?
    59. 82. 1) My life in general will get better for I will be more aware of myself and other people.
    60. 83. 2) My hospitality and service will enhance naturally as a consequence of my understanding.
    61. 84. 3) The quality of my cocktails will increase since I will be aware of myself when I am making them!
    62. 85. Really?
    63. 86. Really!
    64. 87. Let’s do an experiment…
    65. 88. 1 1/4 ounces (37 ml) Plymouth Gin 1 1/4 ounces (37 ml) Campari 1 1/4 ounces (37 ml) Sweet (Italian) vermouth 1 orange twist, for garnish Directions Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass. Add large cold ice and stir for 40 revolutions. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with orange twist. Negroni
    66. 89. How and Why is this happening?
    67. 90. Distilled Spirits contain between 50-60% Water
    68. 91. Fresh squeezed Juices, Syrups, Tonics & Cordials between 70-85% Water
    69. 92. Plus dilution from a healthy shake or a proper stir
    70. 93. Means that a cocktail is almost 80% water!
    71. 95. H2O Can our mood, the quality of our inner state, influence the water molecules?
    72. 96. Masaru Emoto claims that is the case.
    73. 97. “ Gratitude”
    74. 98. “ Love”
    75. 99. “ Compassion”
    76. 100. “ Peace”
    77. 101. “ Anger”
    78. 102. “ Hate” Thoughts of murder
    79. 103. “ Of course it matters in what kind of mood I am when I enter the distillery”. – Miles Karakasevic, 12 th generation Master Distiller, Domaine Charbay
    80. 104. Remember Grandma’s cooking?
    81. 105. With her cooking she wanted to please you. Your happiness was the only goal.
    82. 106. That’s why it tasted so good. It was loaded with a special ingredient…
    83. 107. … [Fill in the Blank] …
    84. 108. CONCLUSION
    85. 109. WHETER YOU JIGGER OR FREE POUR…LEARN TO POUR A PART OF YOURSELF INTO YOUR COCKTAILS. MAKE EACH ONE OF THEM AS IF YOU ARE MAKING THEM FOR SOMEONE REALLY, REALLY SPECIAL TO YOU. DESIRE TO PLEASE THAT PERSON BEYOND THEIR EXPECTATIONS…AND EVEN IF IT SEEMS THAT THEY DO NOT APPRECIATE IT AT FIRST, NEVER REGRET IT.
    86. 110. Otherwise, a machine could make far better drinks then us…and we’ll never admit that, will we?
