In this post, we’ve shared an inspirational journey of a Cannabis Alchemist, Writer of Apothecary Cocktails & Whiskey Cocktails, and well-known Mixologist – Warren BoBrow.
Talking about Warren Bobrow, he’s a mixologist, chef, and writer known as the Cocktail Whisperer. Bobrow is a freelance mixologist specializing in Craft Spirits. He has developed bar programs and implemented their cocktail and ice programs. Warren served as master mixologist for several brands of liquor, including the Busted Barrel rum produced by New Jersey’s first licensed distillery since Prohibition.
BoBrow was born in New Jersey and completed his bachelor’s degree in communications and film at Emerson College in Boston Massachusetts. He has tried his hands in various fields and currently, he’s working as a Cannabis Alchemist, presently working on the periphery of the known and unknown universe between craft spirits and the cannabis industry. He also writes for Forbes.com and a host of magazines and publications on a global basis. His five books are: Apothecary Cocktails, Whiskey Cocktails, Bitters and Shrub Syrup Cocktails, Cannabis Cocktails, The Craft Cocktail Compendium, In reprint: Whiskey Cocktails.
When did we ask Warren to Introduce Himself, like Who’s Warren Bobrow?
He said promptly, “My name is Warren Bobrow and I’m a Cannabis Alchemist. I’ve created a life for myself writing about spirits, not mystical spirits, but certainly about the type of drunk spirits. Starting with books like Apothecary Cocktails, I have completed my second book, Whiskey Cocktails. Another book, Bitters & Shrubs is in the compendium, The book that we love to talk about is Cannabis Cocktails because it created something out of nothing. So who’s Warren BoBrow? Well, Warren BoBrow is a lot of things. He’s a chef, a former banker and worked with other people’s money. Surprisingly enough, he’s a seven-time failure and he made something out of nothing.”
Also, When we asked him, How he is coping with the current COVID-19 situation and what are the challenges facing, He Says:
“It’s just my wife, me and my mother in law. So self-care is very easy because we don’t have a whole lot of responsibilities right now. The first major challenge that I’m facing right now is the lack of travel and we’re not safe with travel. Travel is probably not such a great thing right now. Most of the work that I do is housed right here at my desk. I can get out and do things but it’s not necessary to become successful to do those things. I can do it from a virtual standpoint. The thing that I miss most though is the interaction with people.”
