Entering and pursuing law is often accompanied by a host of new experiences. One such experience is the proliferation of cocktails at events such as company receptions, dinner parties, and after-work unwinds. Connected with or extending from this new experience may be the expectation to know how to make cocktails yourself; whether it be to craft a stylish drink to impress an important dinner guest, or to speak intelligently about how you’d like your martini made when ordering it in front of your clients. Regardless, as future lawyers it may be helpful to know a thing or two about how to make a cocktail that isn’t the proverbial rum and Coke. In fact, that’s what this piece is all about – providing you with the groundwork to take your drink-making skills to the next level.

The Offshore Account

The Wallstreet Julep
