Elemental Mixology Courses News

I must announce that, since I am due to become someone's father in August, I will be taking a hiatus from the courses after that.  That means that the current courses listed at will be the last ones available for a while.  If you have been waiting to take the EMDC, the time to wait has ended!  The course will fill up quickly and this post must serve as everyone's fair and equal notice!
All is not lost for those who do not get in - the courses will resume in November.

Attention: Elemental Mixology Mixed Drinks Course Alumni

I am preparing a written test for the Elemental Mixology Mixed Drinks Course.  The test will not be a required part of taking the course.  Any student who chooses to take the test and passes it will receive a certificate to the effect that they have passed the EMDC test and will be given an e-mail address in the Elemental Mixology domain, should it be desired.  The addresses will be in the forms of:  (for women)  (for men)
That might be a more interesting e-mail address for a bartending resume or other drink-related endeavors.
When your address is set, an e-mail will be sent to your other e-mail address with confirmation of your address and a temporary password that you may change.
Any prior students who have completed EMDC within the past two years may take the test when I give it.  Anyone interested in repeating EMDC is always allowed to sign up for it at a discounted rate in the last week before the course begins, provided there are any spaces left.  More information about the course can be found at
Anyone interested in taking the test should e-mail me at:
