Hey, I'm Steve the Barman and I've been Bartending since 1995. I'm all about FUN. So I'm not here to show you classic Cocktails. I'm here to give you Fun Inspiration so you can impress friends and family at home! 



Welcome to my new look Videos, complete with a brand new Name. Thank you to everyone who helped choosing a name. It was tight, but after deciding on Boozy Banter, a last min change was called for because it just didn’t feel right.

So. I’ve gone with Booze Flash!!

What will these videos be about?!

Over the last 6 months, I’ve created a great following on YouTube. I have a small but loyal following, but the channel has been primarily Search Based. Views have been racking up because I’ve been answering Questions.

However, Facebook has been a different story. Despite an average watch time on YouTube of between 3 and 7 minutes depending on the Video. On Facebook, the retention has been less than 1%. While FB shows you you’re getting 100/1000 views...if you actually dive down into the new Retention Analytics, less than 1% of my 1000 views made it past 30 seconds.

I learned all this from one of my regular Podcasts. Then they dived in to how they’re solving the problem. And they coined the Phrase “Drive by Content” which really got me. Because it’s exactly what we do. We scroll, stop on something. Maybe if we’re lucky give 2 minutes of our attention, then move on. Not only that, we don’t really wanna turn our phones on the side, we wanna watch like this.

So that’s what I’m gonna do. Going forward these videos are gonna be around the 2 minute mark. Short “Drive by Content” helping you to understand Drinks a bit better.

I’ll be doing;

  • More Gin Reviews

  • Drinks News

  • Cocktail Recipes

  • Tonic Waters and other Mixers

  • Giving you some knowledge and my musings

  • And letting you in on Product reviews from my Favvy people down the road “Drinkstuff

How can you help me?!

My Target for this is to hit the 10,000 follower mark.

And if you want to help and support me, then Drop me a Like or Follow My Page if you haven’t done so already.

And in the comments below, let me know what you’d like me to cover!
