THE WIG SHOP COCKTAIL LOUNGE

BOSTON, MA

The Wig Shop, Boston’s newest cocktail lounge, boasts retro-inspired beverages, an exclusive champagne list and inventive small plates. The cocktail destination transformed what was once Wig World, turning the space into a cocktail hideaway while paying homage to the previous business through symbolic hair-themed elements.

The Wig Shop is led by multiple hospitality industry veterans, including restaurateur Babak Bina, who owns and operates the bar and other concepts (Bin26, jm Curley, and Bogie’s Place), along with partner Andy Cartin; Managing Partner Kevin Mabry, whose hospitality roots began as early as childhood at his parents’ Connecticut sports bar, followed by positions at notable restaurants including Seasons in the

Ocean House Hotel in Watch Hill, RI, Bobby Flay’s Bar Americain at Mohegan Sun and Capo Restaurant & Supper Club; Oscar Simoza, The Wig Shop’s bar manager, who is known for his impressive work at jm Curley and holds the title of “Culture Shaker of 2021” awarded by Jack Daniels; and Executive Chef John Malone, who is no stranger to the Boston food scene, having spent time in the kitchen at Capo, Lucy’s American Tavern, and jm Curley.

“After seeing the success of jm Curley and Bogie’s Place, it was a no-brainer to add The Wig Shop to our repertoire of bars and restaurants in the area,” says Mabry. “Though I may be biased since The Wig Shop is a dream come true for me, I know it will be a fun addition to the Downtown Crossing scene and I

hope all guests come ready to dress up and show out.”

Upon entering what appears to be a wig shop with retro wig stands outfitting the window display, guests are welcomed into chic lounge-style space that exudes a playful and elegant ambiance. In the dining area, blue and maroon velvet booths and chairs surround gold accented tables, each separated by a sheer gold floor-to-ceiling drape to create a sense of intimacy. A standout L-shaped bar made of sleek black quartz and a custom-built back bar sit beyond the dining area, offering bar seating for smaller parties. Gold sconces furnish the walls and black metal light fixtures hang delicately over the bar to illuminate the space.

Located at 27 Temple Place in Boston, MA, The Wig Shop is open seven days a week from 5:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.

RAMÓN BILBAO VERDEJO

Perfect for Springtime weather, Ramón Bilbao Verdejo is a fresh, clean, and bright white wine with a distinct fruit and herbal character. Produced from 100% Verdejo grapes harvested in 2022, this wine is from Spain’s Rueda D.O., where the altitude (over 700 meters) and continental climate (very hot summers and very cold winters) creates the perfect condition for growing Verdejo grapes, ensuring the freshness of the wine’s aromas. Ramón Bilbao Verdejo pairs perfectly with cold dishes such as creams, steamed vegetables, salads, cream cheeses, and white meats.

The head winemaker for Ramon Bilbao’s Rueda winery is Sara Bañuelos, who grew up in Spain’s Rioja region surrounded by the best wines in the world. She studied agricultural engineering and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Oenology at the University of La Rioja before working her way through different wineries in Spain, and eventually to Ramón Bilboa. Her favorite wine pairing? “A mushroom and truffle risotto with a full-bodied white,” she says.

But Absente can also be the foundation for many innovative cocktails, especially the Sazerac, or to spice up more classic recipes like the Absinthe Spritz or Smoky Colada. When incorporated in an existing cocktail, or long drink, Absinthe adds an herbaceous note, but respecting the cocktail identity: a Gin tonic absinthe will still be a Gin Tonic, but with something special.

ABSENTE

Absente, The First legal Absinthe in the US, Creates Innovative Cocktails.

Bartenders and consumers across the U.S. have increasingly discovered the quality, versatility, and intriguing taste of absinthe. And one of the best-known and most respected authentic absinthe brand in the U.S. also happens to be the first legal absinthe to be introduced here, Absente.

The Absente portfolio - Grande Absente 138 Proof, Absente Absinthe Refined 110 Proof, and Absinthe Ordinaire 92 Proof – each have their own characteristic taste profile. They are produced at Distilleries de Provence in the South of France, following some of the oldest absinthe recipes and using the highest quality artisanal distillation methods, dating back to 1860. Ingredients are the same as a century and

a half ago, including the infamous botanical wormwood (Artemisia Absinthium), which contains thujone and imparts the spirit’s distinctive bitter taste (and it’s also the component that has been accused to create hallucinations back in the 1800s.) Today, the approved level of thujone is 10mg per liter, which is what Absente contains.

Added to the wormwood are several botanicals, such as mugwort, anise, peppermint, and lemon balm, which create a very aromatic and intense taste, with a pronounced herbaceous and spicy taste, with a pleasingly bitter finish.

The traditional way to enjoy Absente is to pour 2 oz. in a glass, place an absinthe spoon with a sugar cube on

slightly spiced taste, it mixes beautifully into numerous cocktails and adds a delicious note to so many drinks,” says Jean-Baptiste Robert, Owner of Distilleries de Provence. “It goes with bourbon, gin, mezcal, rum – that’s why we’re seeing bartenders experimenting and playing in so many innovative ways with this spirit. The only limit is your creativity!”

Most people recognize Absente by the iconic Van Gogh image on the label. Robert explains that Van Gogh was selected to represent the brand because he was known to love absinthe. Like many artists of his time, the “Green Fairy” (as absinthe is often called, due to its unique naturally green color) was said to feed artistic inspiration.

“Absente is an authentic, original, and beloved spirit, and it’s incredibly exciting to see so many consumers and bartenders discover and appreciate this extraordinary spirit,” adds Robert.

TIA BARRETT CHICAGO, IL

As Esmé’s Beverage Director, Tia Barrett oversees the curation of the beverage program at the Michelin-starred fine dining destination in Chicago’s Lincoln Park community. With the program, Barrett aspires to provide a platform for distinct and underrepresented voices in the industry with a wine list that predominantly showcases bottles from women and BIPOC producers, as well as those with a philanthropic mission. The 50-bottle list places emphasis on biodynamic or certified organic wines while considering approachability, as well as unexpected offerings that inspire education and discovery among guests. This intention is echoed throughout the bar program with bespoke craft cocktails, spirits and beer selections that similarly tell a story about an independent producer, their process and their commitment to giving back.

In her role, Barrett draws upon her deep and multifaceted experience across the industry. She was most recently the Director of Service at the Michelinstarred Entente in Chicago’s River North

neighborhood, and previously curated the cocktail program at Boka Group’s GT Prime Steakhouse.

At Esmé, Barrett shares in proprietors Jenner Tomaska and Katrina Bravo’s mission to reimagine the fine dining model while cultivating community within the restaurant — among both staff and guests. Described by Tomaska and Bravo as a “love letter to Chicago,” Esmé is similarly deeply personal for Barrett, who grew up in Glenview outside of Chicago where her parents settled after immigrating from Jamaica. While Barrett studied Sports Medicine in school with ambitions to become a Physical Therapist, she was consistently more inspired by her work at a local restaurant and wine bar. It was during this time that she unearthed her passion for unlocking the stories behind the beverages she was pouring, while cultivating meaningful connections with guests. This passion continues to fuel Barrett’s approach and aspirations to provide memorable experiences that inspire feelings of commonality and community.

KIMBER WEISSERT PITTSBURGH, PA

Originally a talent booker at a concert club in Cleveland, Kimber found her way behind the bar 15 years ago which led to a path of craft cocktails, whiskey, and wine. She’s now running the bar program and bartending at Simpre Algo in the Deutschtown neighborhood of Pittsburgh where the whiskey selection is continually growing!

HANNAH WHITENACK DETROIT, MI

With a passion for rum and tiki, Hannah has bartended for almost 18 years in Detroit. A frequent participant in “Women Who Tiki” events, she is currently involved with a tiki bar pop up concept called "Dead Lagoon".

A self-described “bit of a nerd” Missy’s dream is to one day open a GoT-themed bar where she can focus on sustainable practices, sourcing from local vendors, and creating a healthy compassionate working environment for herself and the people around her.

Originally from South Texas, Crystal has been bartending for six years and is a sitting board member of the Long Beach Bartenders Guild.

Alisha’s background in dance and fine arts, along with her Korean American heritage, are the fuel behind her creativity and passion for her 20 years behind the bar, and her current work at Veritas Restaurant in Columbus.

She’s also the President of the local chapter of the USBG, and is a trainer for Safe Bars RVA, which focuses on sexual violence/harassment prevention in the hospitality industry.

After pursuing a career in make-up artistry, and following her passion for martial arts, “bartending was something I had always envisioned doing one day because I was often fascinated by the process of making magic happen behind the bar – creating, combining, and transforming magic and the alchemy and chemistry of it all,” says Jocelyn, who is a lead bartender at one of the top restaurants in California’s capitol city, Kru Japanese Contemporary Cuisine.

NADINE MEDINA LAS VEGAS

Hailing from Hawaii, food and beverage has been in Nadine’s blood for generations. After an exciting stint as a Chef for the Seattle Sonics, Seahawks, and Mariners, she crossed over into bartending and eventually found her way to Las Vegas where she now is a menu consultant and the owner of a custom garnish and specialty mixology products company.

LEAVY

A native of Honolulu, and a Las Vegas resident for over 10 years, Jillian has an extensive background in marketing and operations management. She has worked at some of the best-known restaurants and bars in the city, now behind the bar at Blue Martini Lounge.

Oregon Moonshine: Bootleggers, Busts & Brawls

Available at Amazon.com

$23.99

➨ Moonshining is deep-rooted in the history of Oregon, stretching back to the days before it became a state. In 1844, when it was still Oregon Territory, one of the first moonshiners, James Conner, challenged a lawman to a duel for busting his illegal operation. The McKenzie River Bandits had better luck hiding from the law and produced bootleg booze for nearly five years before their arrest. It wouldn’t be the last time they were caught. Over the years, outlaw moonshiners engaged in car chases, shootouts and even attempted an assassination to protect their hidden distilleries—and way of life. Join author Bruce Haney as he chronicles the intoxicating history of Oregon moonshine.

SWITCHBACK KARSTEN LAGER

Switchback Brewing Co., home to Vermont’s iconic Switchback Ale — has released their Karsten Premium Lager in 16 oz cans for the first time.

“With the recent addition of a new Quadrel Techline high speed labeler, the brewery now can create out-of-the-box labels that truly fit the personality of each beer,” says Brewery Founder and Brewmaster, Bill Cherry. “The new equipment eliminates color and print limitations of mass-produced pre-printed cans which we used to have to order by the truckload.” Switchback’s graphic designer, Interrobang Design Collaborative, whom they have worked with since the Brewery’s founding, utilized many of the creative features that Amherst Label offers to make dynamic cans that come alive as you rotate them.

Karsten Lager is crisp, clean and expertly crafted. It features Switchback’s delicious malt signature, balanced by noble hops with just a hint of sweetness.

Modest to the bone despite the skill it takes to make, this beer is made for drinking not crowing about. A beer big on details but not boastful about them. But like all of us, Karsten deserves to

have some fun - check out his antics in the “Karsten Klips” series.

Find Karsten in 16 oz. can 4-packs and 12 oz. can 12-packs throughout Switchback’s distribution footprint.

CRAFTHOUSE COCKTAILS INTRODUCES NEW COFFEE OLD FASHIONED

New limited edition ready-to-serve cocktail joins Crafthouse’s portfolio of all-natural classic cocktails in a bottle.

Crafthouse Cocktails, one of the first brands to introduce bartender-quality premium craft ready-to-serve cocktails in a bottle, has just launched an innovative new limited-edition Coffee Old Fashioned.

“It’s something I’ve had in my head a long time that I’ve wanted to do,” says Charles Joly, a global bartending champion who together with Chicago bar owner and restauranteur Matt Lindner founded Crafthouse Cocktails ten years ago. “This is a variation on a smoked coffee cocktail I enjoy making at events, people always seem to love it, and so we’ve been working hard to perfect it in a bottle.”

Like all Crafthouse Cocktails, the new Coffee Old Fashioned is created from all-natural ingredients, in this case made with high rye bourbon from Traverse City Whiskey Co. in Northern Michigan, and coffee from Chicago coffee roaster Dark Matter Coffee, together with custom bitters that Joly created.

Crafthouse Cocktails were first introduced in 2013, back when you’d be hard pressed to find a real, premium-quality premixed cocktail in a bottle or a can. It might be hard to remember, but back then even many of today’s popular malt-based RTDs didn’t exist either.

“We asked ourselves 10 years ago, why isn’t anyone making high-quality bottled cocktails the way we do in the bar? It was a huge unmet need in the market,” says Joly. “We’re proud that Crafthouse Cocktails was truly the first real ‘ready-toserve’ premium cocktail.”

They created classic cocktails using their favorite variety of ingredients and small batch craft spirits from some of the best distilleries, just as Joly would do for his attendees at famed events across the world. They maintained their uncompromised requirement of crafting classic cocktails their way — a single batch at a time, attending to every detail, no matter how small.

In the end, they succeeded in producing what has become the Crafthouse Cocktails lineup: a meticulously crafted collection of balanced cocktails, rivaling those of even the most respected craft cocktail bars.

Today Crafthouse Cocktails are available in cans, bottles, and bag-in-box, in such varieties as a Smoky Margarita, Moscow Mule, Paloma, Pineapple Daiquiri, Rum Old Fashioned, Spicy Margarita, the Southside (made with London dry gin, natural mint flavors, and real citrus), the Goldrush (made with bourbon, honey, real lemon, and bitters), and of course the new Coffee Old Fashioned. The craft spirits used for Crafthouse Cocktails are produced at several partner distilleries, including CH Distillery in Chicago, La Cofradia tequila distillery in Mexico, Traverse City Whiskey Co., Bittered Sling Bitters from Canada, and Plantation Rum.

“In addition to at-home consumption, ready-to-serve cocktails have really allowed people to find a good quality cocktail far beyond home, at places like airports, hotels, on planes, on Amtrak,” adds Joly. “And because of the popularity and growth of premium ready-to-serve cocktails, that’s helping drive overall premium spirits sales in the U.S.”.

DON JULIO

STARBACK 2023 COMPETITION

In February of 2023 we partnered with Tequila Don Julio to crown the 2023 StarBack winner! The competition took place in Miami, Las Vegas, NYC, Austin, LA, and Chicago, and then one victor from each of those local events competed once more in NYC to crown the overall winner!

For the first round of competition each consisted of a speed round where each person had to create three drinks...a Don Julio Blanco Margarita, Don Julio Reposado Paloma, and a Don Julio Añejo Old-Fashioned. For the second round, each competitor had to make their best and most creative margarita, and then for the final round, they were allowed to make their most creative drink! The scores were tallied up, and a winner was announced (with each receiving a custom StarBack jacket and a custom cocktail kit!)

Our local winners included Gustavo Rodriguez from Miami; Joe Arakawa from Las Vegas; James DeFoor from New York City; Veronica Flores from Austin; Crystal Mendoza from LA; and Tia Barrett from Chicago. These talented bartenders then all flew to NYC to compete at Sweetbriar at the Park South Hotel

for the finals! The competitors had to wow the judges with three additional cocktails. Their best Paloma, an original cocktail, and a “Red Carpet”-worthy cocktail! The judges included Jackie Foley from BARTENDER® Magazine, Charles Joly and New York Educator, Jonathan Lind from Enthuse Marketing.

After each competitor created their drinks, it was time to crown a winner. Master Educator Rasmus Just (who also judged the local Miami competition) announced the winner of the competition, Tia Barrett from Chicago! Tia worked with Charles Joly and team to create thousands of incredible Don Julio cocktails at the big red-carpet event in LA.

Cheers to all who competed, and we look forward to partnering with this competition in the future! Check out our Instagram (@bartendermagazine) to see photos from the events and learn more about our competitors and judges.

Special thanks to Lisa Petrella, Adrienne Smith, Justin Noel, Brynn Laurash, Laura Briar, and the other local judges who helped bring these events to life.
