Joe has been serving up cocktails at Maxwells for the last year and a half. His smile and jokes have kept people coming back. So go in to check out his joke of the day (as long as you’re not too squeamish) or go try one of his mean cocktails. Curious on how he makes those cocktails? Visit www.maxwellsnd.com to check out the weekly video of Joe making one of his signature drinks.

Beer of the Month – Lost Continent Double IPA – This is a nice, grape-fruity, bitter beer.

Wine of the Month – Homemade Sangria – Made from scratch with fresh-squeezed orange, lime, brandy and orange liquor.

Drink of the Month – Gimlet – Fresh lime, gin and a little sugar. It’s similar to a vodka margarita.

Favorite part of bartending?
Making connections with people and making friends.

Least favorite?
The responsibility when you have to tell someone they’ve had enough, but they want to keep on partying. You obviously have to be responsible because you want everyone to get home.

Joke?
Ole and Lena are out at a picnic and Ole pulls out a cigarette for himself and offers one to Lena. Lena says, “Ole! I can’t smoke. What would my Sunday school kids say?”

Later on Ole pulls out a flask and takes a swig and offers some to Lena. She says, “Ole! I can’t drink. What would my Sunday school kids say?”

Finally, they’re driving home, and they pass a hotel. Ole asks if she wants to get a room and see where the night goes, and Lena actually agrees. Ole is shocked and says, “What are you going to tell your Sunday school kids?” She responds, “I’m going to tell them what I tell them every week. You can have a good time without smoking or drinking.”

How to impress a date?
Make sure your car is clean and waxed. Open the door. Call the restaurant ahead of time and make sure there’s something nice on the table. Start at the bar with a nice glass of champagne or a cocktail. Finally, don’t over-indulge.
