(512) 257-2244
11200 Lakestop Blvd
Cedar Park, TX
Description
Chelsea Street Lakeline - Chelsea Street Pub doesn't fit the profile of a typical 6th Street Bar. It's located inside the Lakeline Mall and mostly features cover bands -- not exactly the place to take advantage of the Austin music scene. However, when you're at the mall late, Chelsea Street makes for a great place to satisfy any shopping-induced munchies.
Cross Street

In real estate the mantra is location, location, location but in mixing cocktails its technique, technique, technique. Most home bartenders tend to just throw the ingredients together and serve the drink and in a lot of commercial establishments they do the same thing. The way a drink is prepared can make a big difference in how it tastes and in the atmosphere created.

Chilling a Glass
Always chill glasses before filling them. There are a couple of ways to accomplish this. First is to simply put them in the fridge or a freezer a couple of hours ahead of time. If you forget however you can fill the glass with shaved or crushed ice for a few minutes. Make sure to empty the ice before preparing the drink.

Frosting a Glass
For "frosted" drinks you can put the glass in the freezer ahead of time or bury it in shaved ice until it has a white, frosted and ice-cold look and feel.

Floating Liqueurs
Creating a layered drink, also known as a pousse caf�, is not difficult once you know how. The main concept is the heavier ingredients go in first and the lighter ones on top so the ingredients don't mix. Take an inverted spoon and slowly pour the ingredient onto the back of the spoon. This spreads it out and reduces the churn that happens with a straight pour. This can also be done by pouring the ingredient down a glass rod.

Flaming Liqueurs
To make a flaming drink you have to have a spirit that has a high alcohol content. Brandy is normally used. Prewarm the glass being used. Pour some liquor into the prewarmed glass and heat a smaller amount over a flame or in a saucepan on a stove. Light it with a match and then pour it into the glass being used very carefully. This will cause the rest of the alcohol to ignite. Be careful, flames can jump up qu...
