Watch (and Talk to) Your Favorite Bartenders, No Bar Stool Required

A new summer livestream series will feature Josh Goldman, Matthew Biancaniello and others

This world we are living in. While you used to have to sidle up to the bar and bear a backless stool if you wanted to schmooze with your favorite bartender, now you can just flip on your device. Starting today (at 3:30 p.m.),  juice company Bolthouse Farms will be launching a new summer cocktail series on Periscope and Meerkat, featuring some of L.A.’s biggest behind-the-bar stars.

First up will be Josh Goldman (Belcampo Meat Co., Soigné Group), who will be making two root-vegetable juice drinks: the Borscht Belt and a mocktail called the Fozzie Bear. He’ll also be sharing his best bar stories and fielding questions from the audience, meaning you if you’re game.

The series will continue throughout the summer—future hosts will include Vincenzo Marianella (Copa D’Oro, The Independence), Karen Grill (Sassafrass), and bar chef Matthew Biancaniello. More will soon be announced.

Here’s the line up for the rest of June:

6/11: Vincenzo Marianella

6/18: Karen Grill

6/25: Joseph Brooke

You can catch the summer cocktail series today and every Thursday at 3:30 via Periscope or Meerkat (@BolthouseFarms). Recipes will be available on @BolthouseFarms social media channels following each livestream.
