    One of my main goals coming to Chicago was to find the best of the best when it came to restaurants and bars. Unfortunately the Coronavirus made it required to have a reservation to go anywhere. This made it difficult for me to find places as I was walking in an area I liked, or have any spontaneous meals at new places. I have gone to quite a few well known places and decided to give my honest opinion of them. This can be anything from food to the view to the pricing on the menu. So here we go...

    Rock & Rye Medicinal Properties Are Many

    Rock & Rye is an 84 proof alcoholic beverage that was esrtablished in 1884. It is comprised of straight rye whiskey, navel oranges, raw honey, and rock candy. Bitters, which are flavored with botanical matter, are added to give the drink a taste that is both bitter and sweet. Longstanding brands of bitters initially developed into patent medicines, but now are sold as products to aid digestion. Bitters, also known as bitter herbs, (because they are considered to have herbal healing properties) are combined with cocktail flavorings. Since cocktails contain both sour and sweet flavors, bitters are used to make the drink more complex and give it a more complete taste.

    Bartending School - Is it worth it?

    Bartending School - Is it worth it?

    Making drinks has always been a big hobby of mine. I was a barista for a few years, and had experience both teaching and attending numerous coffee seminars. I watched the World Barista Championship for fun, and I was practically a caffeine addict by the age of 14 (although that's another story) . Making artisan drinks was fun, and with the amount of time I spent exploring different concoctions, it came to no surprise that I would soon venture towards mixology as well. As an 18 year old from California I wasn't even sure I was legally allowed to attend a bartending school. But one morning I found myself calling a local bartending school for more information, and that same week I was enrolled.

    Beverages That Are Keto-Friendly

    Beverages That Are Keto-Friendly

    The keto diet has become a popular choice for those looking for an effective way to lose weight. It emphasizes eating a high-fat diet with plenty of protein, while limiting carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are more easily transformed to energy, so if you eat a diet that is high in them, this will be your body's choice of fuel to burn.When you cut back on the carbs, you force your body to burn fat for energy instead. One of the biggest questions for people who decide to give the keto diet a try, is whether or not any alcohol is permitted. The good news is that there are some options that you can partake in while staying true to your new diet. It's important to read your labels to become familiar with the ingredients in the beverage of your choice, and limit the number of drinks that you have since many are still high in calories. But, if you do a little research beforehand, you can find a few tasty choices to be your new go-to drink.

So, one day when I saw a reserved older man, sitting at the end of my bar all alone and looking like he had the world on his shoulders, naturally I went over and asked what he wanted to drink. He smiled kindly, his eyes crinkling around the edges just a little.
