~ Caffeine Crawl, Coffee Fest, Portland Cocktail Week ~ libations flowed freely in the Rose City this week, & our team drank it up. ~
~ Sadie took a very old car and three compadres to San Diego - beverage enchantment, and what we will call "adventure," ensued. ~
~ After last week's exploration into Aperitifs and a week of excellent KC food and beverage, we headed back to The Rieger for a nightcap. ~
~ We asked 6 inspiring guys from the world of artisan beverages the same 2 questions,
and they answered. ~
~ In the spirit of St. Patrick's day, we got our Irish whiskey on with this classic cocktail that shares its name with a town in Southern Ireland. ~
I love salsa, I do. Go ahead and judge me. I also love the condiment of the cocktail world, bitters. Recently took a few bottles of bitters and sugar cubes to a New Year's Eve party to help those that weren't huge bubbly fans.
When I got into the beverage industry there were just a handful of bitters to choose from and stock your bar with. Now there's everything from celery to chocolate, and many odd profiles that I probably will never use. Just look at the options on Kegworks alone.
