    Featured Cocktail | Lionel Got The Juice!

    Lionel took on several projects, and those closest to him worried he’d burn out. He reassured his friends it was all under control, and ambition was going to reward him.

    However, everyone knew that Lionel was trying his hardest to not remember. Once fearless, now aimlessly drifting.

    Lionel could only continue with life’s journey if he conquered his fear of blood oranges! Yes, deathly afraid, for once ingested all lost memory returns. Sometimes the juice is worth the squeeze, and he bit into the blood orange, and never looked back.

    • 2 oz Roots of Ruin gin
    •  .25 oz blood orange oleo saccharum
    • .5 oz blood orange shrub
    • 1 oz IYLIA white wine
    • garnish with dehydrated blood orange

    Add all ingredients, except wine, to your mixing glass, add ice, stir for 45 seconds and strain into wine glass, or coupe.  Top off with IYLIA white wine.

    • I started off working for non-profits, then teaching at charter schools in marginalized communities throughout Chicago, Oakland, CA and Portland, Oregon. My passion for learning, teaching and history is undeniable, but I was struggling financially, so I began moonlighting as a bartender just to make ends meet, and unexpectedly fell madly in love with every aspect of the bar business. For my squad and I, it is about so much more than making a great cocktail. It’s about memories, music, history and sharing those moments, ensuring you embrace the present, reflect on the past and securing a bright future.
