In today’s Episode…

We’re chatting with Jordan Silbert, the man behind Q Drinks mixers. Like many of us, he appreciated a great cocktail with great spirits. But he became frustrated when he realized that quality spirits had to share a glass with low-quality mixers.

Listen in to this episode to hear his story and how he set about to offer mixers as good as the spirits they’re enjoyed with.


We’re chatting about:

  • What inspired Jordan to start Q Drinks in the first place
  • How Q Drinks found a spot at PDT and Milk & Honey before it was for sale to the public
  • What the most dangerous part of making Q Tonic really is (hint: it’s not quinine!)
  • How a simple two-part cocktail can be a special experience for the guest
