Chris McMillian

From Chanticleer Society

Identified by Imbibe Magazine as one of “The Top 25 Most Influential Cocktail Personalities of the Past Century”[1]:

"As much a New Orleans institution as the Sazeracs he serves, career bartender Chris McMillian is a living piece of Nola cocktail history. His bartending style is one part historian, two parts storyteller, and his pitch-perfect Mint Juleps are a legend in their own right."

While working at the Library Bar at the Ritz in New Orleans, Chris McMillian recorded several videos on how to make many of the great classic cocktails. This video series was very early on in the days of Internet video and still represents one of the finest examples of how to make some of these drinks. The "Mint Julep" video is perhaps the one he is most well known for.
