Let’s be honest with each other. There are just some days where no matter how hard you try to find motivation, it can be very hard to focus on work. And we can all agree that there is no greater tool than the Internet for faking productivity and procrastinating the tasks at hand. Viral videos are most definitely a weakness of mine and, lucky for me, I can write-off watching fine beverage videos as “research and development” for the blog. (Or at least that is what I keep telling myself).
My newest online video addiction is Combier USA’s collection of “Shaker Faces” – a series of videos capturing the cocktail shaking techniques of some of the country’s most well-known mixologists.
“Face it: you can learn a lot about a bartender by the way they shake a cocktail. And, whether they’re hard shakers or more musically inclined, our favorite bartenders all make a face when they shake. So, we set out across this fine nation to capture a few of our favorite Shaker Faces.” — Combier USA.
If you find yourself putting off work by perusing through the Interwebs, I highly suggest checking out the “Shaker Faces” videos. The competition for ends Friday, so make sure to check the site out before then.
And heed my warning, the videos get pretty addicting. They also make you very very thirsty. Speaking of, I need to go practice my shaker face right now…
