Konkol Blog Special: Sparki the Bartender's cocktail of the week

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)

Welcome to my new blog-only Friday feature to get your weekend started just right. I've commandeered the services of one my all-time favorite Chicago bartenders, Sparki at Four Moon Tavern in Roscoe Village. He's a bartending talent right up there with Heather my tall, blond ex-roommate at Tavern 33 and Humberto, owner of Pullman's Pub.

And I've asked him to provide the recipe for a weekly concoction guaranteed (well almost) to make your Friday night go smoothly. Here you go ...

This drink sure feels like summer, even if you can still see your breath outside.

The (Roscoe) Village Idiot --

In a pint glass filled with ice, mix 1 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao, 1 oz. Amaretto, 1 oz. vodka and 1 oz. tequila. Fill to top with lemonade and add a dash of Coke.

Konkol note: If you go to the Four Moon, don't be one of those guys that yells, "Hey, Sparki!"
He hates that.
But feel free to tip generously. He likes that.

And if you're a bartender or a regular with a favorite cocktail, send me the mix . If it's quality — I'll try it out on my cousin Hipsha — I'll post it with the rest of Chicago to enjoy.

How to Mix

How to mix can mean many things. How to mix a drink, how to mix socially, how to mix friends and lovers, how to mix a tape, how to mix it up. You get the picture. To mix something, to create something. A means to an end, a product, a change of normal course for two seperate objects, a collusion. We tried to delve into mixing things to give you an idea of different outcomes for combining seperate entities. Its something to read while you are drunk anyways, or trying to get drunk...This is just a fun topic, something to play around with. And if you are ever bored at a party or are too drunk to remember the rules to quarters, we even threw in some drinking games to add a little fun to your evening
