About Charlie Hyland

Who am I?

I'm Charlie Hyland! I have a Master's Degree in Opera Performance and a certificate from an online bartending course, and I've made a living wage with precisely one of those things.

What will I be doing on this Patreon?

I'll be posting weekly cocktail recipes and tips, writing profanity-laden opera synopses, and making videos of me singing or making drinks or singing while making drinks.

What the hell do craft cocktails and opera have in common?

Well... not that fucking much, really, but they're about the only two things I'm remotely competent at, so here we are.

Is there a non-shitty answer to that question?

Okay, fine. Cocktails and opera are both often seen as fancy or decadent. They're things to be enjoyed by wealthy supervillains, mob bosses, gentleman cannibals, and/or James Bond, and making a habit of consuming either or both can get really fucking expensive pretty quickly. To make matters worse, some people will tell you that cocktails and/or opera require special knowledge to be properly appreciated (e.g. "Oh, you haven't heard of Jules Massenet / Fernet Branca / Gesamtkunstwerk? BEGONE, PEASANT"). These people are, for lack of a simpler term, assholes.

Opera is awesome. Opera should be enjoyed. Cocktails are awesome. Cocktails should be enjoyed. And I'm in a unique position to chip away at the nonsense pedestals we've built up under both these things.

I hope you'll join me.
