Quick Flight, Small Pours

It’s been a while, so we’re catching up.

 

Doooooooooooooooooooooooooooom.

…or just a shortage of wine, globally.

 

Our very own Brett Pontoni contributes to this PVW article, as does John Hansell.

 

Love these recurring articles:

One about how not drinking correlates to shortened lifespans.

One about blind tasting crappy beer.

 

Halsted Vodka gets local love.

 

Congratulations to Binny’s in Champaign for taking home the coveted “Best Place to Buy Liquor” nod from the Daily Illini.

Confessions of a {Festive} Mixologist: Kissed Chata

Tis the season for awesome Rum Chata gift sets. This year it includes a thermal cup for your hot cocoa + Rum Chata enjoyment.

 

If you’re not enjoying Rum Chata with a warm beverage, you’re probably throwing it back as a shot with something like Fireball Whiskey or Loopy Vodka. But why not use it in cocktail and enjoy it a little while longer?
 
Dan Culen, our mixology enthusiast in Willowbrook combined Rum Chata with Smirnoff Kissed Caramel for an epic Rum Chata cocktail. You will not be disappointed. Dan recommends adding a splash of club soda to soften the drink and give it a few bubbles without changing the flavor profile. It’s an easy holiday cocktail for when Aunt Gladys asks for yet another refill.

Binny’s Evergreen Park: Charity, Ditka and More!

Another group of all-stars that have inspired all of us is Christmas Without Cancer. This organization’s mission is far beyond inspiring. With their drive, energy and goal in mind, these volunteers are able to provide holiday gifts, as well as basic necessities to local families such as gift cards for gasoline and groceries. Don’t be fooled by the name, though. They work all year round to help as many families as possible. They know that cancer doesn’t only affect the patient, but the entire family. We showed our support for this community organization with the charitable gift of $10,000.
