One ingredient does not a cocktail make, but it’s a great place to begin. Our guest is breaking it all down for us in his new Youtube channel, and that’s not the only thing on his plate. 

I’m Susan Schwartz, your drinking companion, and this is, Lush Life Podcast, every week we are inspired to live life one cocktail at a time. 

By the way, did you know I have a weekly newsletter?  It is delivered to your inbox every Tuesday with info on what’s I’m drinking, links to new cocktail recipes, and so much more! ! You can join the fun by signing up for it at - you also get a free goodie!

One Thing Drinks, Jack Wareing’s new youtube channel, may have started off during lockdown, but now it has its own permanent home. 

Not that he doesn't have anything else to do with his time, Jack is also Global Brand Ambassador for Porter’s Gin, whose mission is to respect tradition while innovating, thus to avoid cliches.

From his work at Dandelyan to Porter’s Gin and One Thing Drinks, there was loads to talk about, but before we get to that, I wanted to thank Porter’s Gin for sponsoring the transcript of this podcast! You can find a link to it on my home page,

Now to Jack.
