Gare-Bear's is the type of place you start off your night. The drinks are cheap and strong but the crowd isn't the type to get the party started. Grab a quick drink here and then head out to the real party. -Review of Gare-Bear's
Narrow Lane Tavern

Narrow Lane Tavern - Maybe you'll see Norm in the corner. Or Cliff sitting next to him. Maybe Sam behind the bar. Yep, Narrow Lane Tavern is that comfortable, cozy neighborhood bar - the kind where the bartender seems to know everyone who walks through the door.

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

For "sugar-frosted" glasses, wet the rim of the glass that is already chilled with lemon or lime juice and then dip into powdered sugar or coarse salt depending on the recipe.
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.
