Roost, The - As picturesque as the Pacific Northwest can be, it does have its ugly parts and Issaquah, the location of The Roost, is one of them.

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.
