They’re one bitchin’ couple. Ben offered me something to drink before we rolled into a series of questions. “Want some water or something?” he asks. I think, “I’ll take a whiskey ginger.” “No thanks,” I say. “I’m not thirsty...” Not for water, anyway.

No. 308 INFO:

BOY MEETS GIRL It all started in 2009, at the Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans, which Alexis says, “is like South by Southwest for booze.” Sounds like a recipe of sorts. Ben, a renowned mixologist in the Big Apple, and Alexis, a bartendress in Miami, met through a mutual friend. And this particular traveling buddy happened to make plans to crash with a certain bartender from New York, who was also attending the conference. Ben meet Alexis. Alexis meet Ben. You could say they hit it off. After spending an entire week together—at what was essentially a weeklong alcohol tasting—they both returned home with plans to end things with their significant others. Their relationship caught fire a bit unconventionally, but it works for them. After only twenty-odd days of knowing each other, Alexis proposed to Ben in a hotel room in New York. I bet you can’t guess the room number—it’s the name of their bar.
