Cute name, smart idea for a contest like that. Where'd you get Medford? It looks like he's from Brighton.

Eric's Facebook profile, though I should probably clarify with him. (NB: Eric's a Facebook pal of long standing, I don't just check the profiles of home bar stars as a matter of course.) Re: the cocktail, I like how in addition to being a very clever take on an Arnold Palmer this drink also features a deconstructed Swedish Punsch (lemon/arrack/tea).
