Portneuf Valley Brewing
615 S 1st Ave
Portneuf Valley Brewing, located at [Address], has an atmosphere that's bordering on dive. Don't take a date there-unless she's cool as hell and is super low-maintenance-but it's a good place to chill and unwind. -Review of Portneuf Valley Brewing
Jefferson Street Pub & Suds
147 Jefferson Ave
Jefferson Street Pub & Suds - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Jefferson Street Pub & Suds is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)
122 N 3rd Ave
Hooligans - If you're looking to kick back, Hooligans, located at [Address], is a safe bet. It's not the kind of place that's going to break your wallet, so that's more you have left over for happy hour.
Cotton Club Lounge
1415 Bench Rd
Cotton Club Lounge - Plush seating and good music gives Cotton Club Lounge a good name. The place usually gets filled up by midnight so come early if you want to designate an area for you and your friends.

Center Street Bar & Grill
542 E Center St
Center Street Bar & Grill - Known for its simple décor and good drinks, Center Street Bar & Grill is located at [Address]. Just make sure you dress up a little, as it's not quite the frat bar you're used to from college.
528 E Center St
Players - There's not much to be said about the cocktails at [name]. They're not necessarily cheap, but they're as tasty as they are potent...a delicious and dangerous combination.
2585 Pole Line Rd
Mason Jar - Some bars are legendary. The kind of watering hole that you'll remember for most of your life. Mason Jar? It's not one of them. Located at [Address], it's pretty much your vanilla bar. Which isn't a bad thing.
1259 Yellowstone Ave
Club 91 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 Club 91
Sandbagger's Bar & Grill
296 Yellowstone Ave
Sandbagger's Bar & Grill - If you're looking to kick back, Sandbagger's Bar & Grill, located at [Address], is a safe bet. It's not the kind of place that's going to break your wallet, so that's more you have left over for happy hour.

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.

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 "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.
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...
