Speaking Easy is a cocktail and home entertaining podcast with a twist. Co-hosts Alex Luboff and Jordan Wicker are both avid cocktail party hosts, often in the company of one another, and have had several people approach them separately to ask about sharing some of their accumulated knowledge on cocktails and entertaining.



The Speaking Easy Podcast aims to break down the cocktails, planning, and other details needed to throw a great party, whether it’s 4 people or 40.



Now that twist: we’re most definitely not professionals. Both podcast hosts hold “real” jobs, and outside of hosting in their homes, are not actual bartenders. Alex and Jordan are enthusiasts, and approach the show from that perspective. Speaking Easy is not trying to create a whole new cocktail revolution, but rather spread the word about how easy it is to master simple crowd-pleasing cocktails.



If you watch a lot of “how-to’s” out there, you may see a professional bartender recommending a $75, hard-to-find, obscure ingredient that, yes, might create a world-class drink. We, however, are more interested in crafting an always satisfying drink, night-after-night, for your friends and family. Leave the fancy work to the professionals, we’re just trying to keep the party going.



We don’t expect to teach you to be the best bartender in the world– we’re certainly not. We’re hoping, as we say at the end of each show, that you’ll come along as we all toast “to being a better drinker.”

Great for the home enthusiast

Alex and Jordan do a great job of exploring and explaining home cocktail making. While, I cringe every time they say maraschino and want to send them a PowerPoint on rum, I do enjoy the weekly episodes, the recipes they find and research, and thier enthusiasm. I'm pretty sure I've listened to every episode except the Vodka one - really not for me.

Great podcast for the home bartender

I got into cocktails during the 2016 election, when I desperately needed a distraction and a lot of really stiff drinks. Alex and Jordan have been great guides along the way. They've helped me sift through the whiskey shelf and taught me more than I ever thought I wanted to know about some of the side spirits that now make up the foundations for some of my favorite drinks (their episode on amari is one of my favorites). Plus: precious few mentions of Donald Trump or politics. You'll walk away from each episode with great context, a little history, and a couple recipes to try at home. Props to these guys for taking their home hobby and finding a fun way to share it with the rest of us.

Fun, interesting, inspiring!

This is my new favorite podcast! These guys have helped me blossom as a home bartender - can't wait to throw my next cocktail party and share the tastiness!
