Heather breaks down her favorite coffees of the year, we debate how much a bag of beans should REALLY cost, talk about what made an awful cocktail not actually awful and give you our favorite adult beverages of 2022.
How do travel & booze mix? Does a specific cocktail or drink immediately remind you of a specific place?
Today we are talking with Natalie Migliarini from BeautifulBooze.com and we are discussing the epic relationship between cocktails and travel, how she got her business started, and why it’s okay to blend your business with your travels. We also dive into the best countries for cocktails, the strangest cocktails, the best drinking experiences, and where you should scrimp & splurge for your home bar (especially during COVID-19).

Listener and superfan Kevin took the time to show me around the city and I ate as much as humanly possible. In the name of research of course!
Today Kevin joins me on the podcast to share his love and knowledge of the Chicago food scene, drink scene, and to express some thoughts on why Chicago is actually BETTER than New York City! And, of course, to present us with some fun facts!
