You could watch them live on NoHangUps.tv eating, sleeping, Tindering, working out, etc. On their 14 day journey, Rob made a stop at Binny’s Lincoln Park to debut his mixologist skills – and it turns out, he wasn’t terrible.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Sheridan Road

Tagged:

Bartender Angie built this cocktail around memories she had with her Grandmother. They would often take a drive in the fall down Sheridan Road from the city up to Highland Park and watch all of the leaves change color. Additionally, the rum of choice is Angie’s favorite, and she was quite pleased to find that the port mixed perfectly with the gin and bitters.

Bartender Kyle whipped this one up with ingredients that he had in his home while jamming to some tunes. His playlist must have been on point because he mixed up one delicious cocktail. The ginger and raspberry syrups mix eloquently and blend well with the Armagnac and Fernet Branca to make one deliciously smooth drink.
