Bartender Q&A: Vincent "Vinny" Desposito of Bogart's Bar & Grille on Long Island Iced Teas and the New York Yankees

Many bar and restaurant industry veterans in South Florida hail from far off cold Northern climes in search of warmer, easier living and the chance to make a comfortable -- and rather fun -- living. Although, we do have a few homegrown heros in Broward and Palm Beach.

Bogart's Bar & Grille tender of bar Vincent "Vinny" Desposito, has spent years working in local institutions and graduated from Boca Raton's Spanish River High -- a rarity in these parts.

We decided to catch up with Desposito to find out about his favorite drinks and least favorite customers.
