A Drink of Cinq: Andrew Friedman

Le Mixeur Cinq will be held on Saturday, October 4, at 8pm. The drink menu for the event is comprised of original creations of esteemed bartenders from Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco. Over the next week, we will be featuring a post on each of the contributors and their drink.


Andrew describes himself as the "often-happy owner of Liberty, a scratch, classic cocktail bar in Sunny Seattle, where bourbon is adored and rye is cherished."

Liberty is nestled up on 15th on Capitol Hill. Have you ever wished you could go to a bar with an amazing selection of whiskeys, a cocktail list about 38 pages long, free wi-fi, and an all-sushi food menu? Me too! All my life, in fact. Imagine the dismay of Mom Mixeur, when T.Mixeur was but a lad, and begged of her, "give me liberty," and upon arriving in Philadelphia to gaze upon that glorious bell, did say to her, "where's the fucking whiskey, sushi, and wi-fi?"

If you go to this preferred form of Liberty and don't see Andrew, wait a little while. He'll be along soon enough.

Andrew has dedicated his life to ensuring that a substantial portion of the populace of Seattle reeks of whiskey and raw fish. Our advice to anyone reeking of whiskey and raw fish: seek out some sort of solitary pursuit, such as, I don't know, surfing the internet. Anyone know of a good place on the Hill with free wi-fi?

editor's note: Et pourtant, Andrew est un vrai monsieur et un barman!
