He quickly learned that each restaurant, including the flagship (712 W. Girard Ave.), has its own handmade metal spice box stocked with raw ingredients and masalas, the spice blends each location preps in half-cup batches with a coffeebean grinder. First row (L-R): Bay leaf, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Royalâ&#x20AC;? masala (for lamb and chicken dishes), black cardamom pods, dried chilies. Second row (LR): Chaat masala (mild), walnuts, golden raisins, fresh cilantro. Third row (L-R): fennel seed, turmeric, cayenne pepper, green cardamom pods.

This symbiosis could be characterized as mutualism, a relationship between two different species where both individuals derive a benefit â&#x20AC;&#x201D; e.g., youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a shrimp, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a goby

fish, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get you drunk. While most bar-goers are generally agreeable, a perplexing minority abandon basic courtesy when faced with that big bar and the human being manning it. So rather than viewing this guide as an indictment of people forking over their hard-earned money for drinks, think of it as one big generous tip.

Your bartender isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interested in your address or your photo â&#x20AC;&#x201D; only in covering their frighteningly exposed ass under state law, as Klein notes: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave your house without ID if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning to go to a bar and look under 30. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just common sense.â&#x20AC;?

your surroundings,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. bartender/manager Colin Shearn. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out for a fun night on the town. But in order for you to even have that fun, work needs to get done, so make room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you see servers coming and going from one part of the bar, marked by brass rails or a sign that says â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or a large black rubber drink mat â&#x20AC;Ś donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand there,â&#x20AC;? says Shearn.

N>ZOgWbQ]]Z >S`VO^aO`]c\RbVS same time socially dysfunctional nerds became celebrated billionaires (thank The Social Network), keeping things cool and low-key lost its cachet. That being said, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a vital piece of advice for bar-going novices: Asking for free drinks virtually guarantees you will not get any, ever. Free drinks are a not a right, but a privilege bestowed on steady regulars, lavish tippers and VIPs as indicated by bar owners. Haranguing your bartender or begging for stronger drinks without being willing to pay for doubles is just about as lame as it gets.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;My regulars know they are getting a strong drink for a good price and tip accordingly,â&#x20AC;? says longtime Dirty Frankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bar queen Jody Sweitzer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment on how cheap our prices are and then graciously tip 50 cents.â&#x20AC;? Asking for the cheapest thing on the menu, noted several on the panel, is also unlikely to endear you to your server, and those who â&#x20AC;&#x153;wave their money frantically and scream as if they have been stranded on an island with no food and water for months,â&#x20AC;? as Sweitzer puts it, typically meet the same fate. Cliffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Notes version: Just. Be. Cool.

ÂľEVS\7O[ really busy, I am smiling on the inside,â&#x20AC;? shares Sweitzer, who has clearly suffered, as all female bartenders do, thousands of suggestions to put on a happy face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Those customers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t] have the

Multitasking, a permanent state for anyone who works at a bar, does not include matchmaking services from Gunn: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Guys should not ask bartenders for help picking up girls.â&#x20AC;? As for â&#x20AC;&#x153;that guyâ&#x20AC;? who keeps annoyingly inserting himself into other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conversations? Glommy singles who drive away other guests acquire unshakably bad reputations with bartenders quickly. Lest the bar-going public lose confidence in their best-loved mixmaster, fear not. The best in the business cleave to Heather Keating of the P.O.P.E.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philosophy: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change your life, but I can change your night â&#x20AC;&#x201D; hopefully in a good way.â&#x20AC;?

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the drink â&#x20AC;&#x201D; some combination of rice, cinnamon, water, milk and sugar â&#x20AC;&#x201D; can be tweaked in ways both subtle and drastic to yield many different iterations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In taquerias, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there. On the streets when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there,â&#x20AC;? says Plaza Garibaldiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Raul Castro. Just as with using powdered mixes for iced tea or lemonade, not everyone makes horchata from scratch. When they do, there are countless variations to consider. Many begin with the rice powder and go from there, while those like Castro start further

back with untouched rice. A drink containing milk isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what first springs to mind to when trying to beat summer heat â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Pura Vida owner Charles Alvarez says he often compares it to cereal milk for customers unfamiliar with it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but horchata is mostly water, anyway. In fact, many make it with no leche at all, allowing that floral rice flavor to really come through. Milkless horchata can be found sitting out at room temperature in glass vessels awaiting the draw of a ladle. In these versions, cinnamon can be mixed in prior to serving; other times itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dusted over top to order, in an aesthetically pleasing sprinkle that flavors the drink as it falls to the bottom of the cup. The light use of milk (usually whole) in the recipes featuring dairy, however, provides an intimation of creaminess without making the drink heavy (measurements vary, but many recipes call for roughly two parts milk for every five parts water). The addition of milk not only sweetens the drink (a trait that can be enhanced

with vanilla, sugar or condensed milk), it also bolsters horchataâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to extinguish a spiced-out mouth. At >ZOhO5O`WPOZRW (935 Washington Ave.), chef/owner Castro lets rice sit overnight in water ahead of blending it, straining it and blending it again with milk (evaporated and whole) and cinnamon. He sweetens the mix with a pinch of vanilla and some sugar. The key here is Mexican cinnamon, or canela; with the leafiness of tobacco, it has a pronounced bite that gradually lays into the back of the tongue. The spiciness of Garibaldiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horchata, poured from a chilled dispenser, hits in varying waves, cut by a giddy, rice-puddinglike creaminess. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfect paired with Castroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oaxaca cheese and masa quesadillas. Ask for horchata at F]QVWbZ (408 S. Second St.) and your bartender will turn around to grab one of three bulbous glass jugs (the other two are hibiscus and tamarind aguas frescas). Poured over ice into a tall Collins glass, this milkless horchata continued on page 20Ă­

has a slightly grainy feel. Manager Sergio Ruiz takes a from-scratch approach, soaking his rice for eight to 10 hours before blending it and passing it through cheesecloth twice to gain that winning consistency. They spike upon request here, too â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ask for two parts dark rum on the rocks topped off with horchata. The sugars of the rum are subsumed within the rice-and-cinnamon mosaic, the alcohol dancing on the edges. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also done a horchata and vanillainfused tequila cocktail. To find the horchata at BOQ] @WS\R] (1301 N. Fifth St.), look next to the cash register, at the end of the cafeteria-like line where your tacos are assembled. The horchata â&#x20AC;&#x201D; rice, water, a small amount of whole milk and a faint dusting of powdered cinnamon that quickly settles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is light, splashing together nicely with bites of rich, fatty beef cheek tacos. At South Phillyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s :]a5OZZ]a (951 Wolf St.), the horchata sits in a 5-gal-

lon jug in front of the cash register, its three thick bands of glass giving the impression of a mini barrel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People come in here and they stare and they say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says owner Luz Jimenez. (He converts them by offering samples.) Making the horchata is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a process,â&#x20AC;? one Jimenez happily takes to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why people who love it come here â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to make it at home.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a whisper of cinnamon (he blends in whole sticks with the rice) that plays elusively with his restrained use of vanilla extract â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;just a little.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neither too thick nor too heavy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one wants to feel full right away,â&#x20AC;? says Jimenez of his light version. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially not the point with horchata.â&#x20AC;? There are horchata traditions that extend outside of Mexico, too. Guatemalan-born Alvarez of >c`O DWRO (527 Fairmount Ave.) scratchmakes horchata in line with how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s served in his native Guatemala. Rather than just let uncooked rice

soak, he gives it a light toast ahead of an overnight steeping. Then, he rinses it several times, dries it and grinds it into a fine powder, rendering a clean, refreshing end product flavored with powdered cinnamon. You might swear thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vanilla in there, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually the toasted flavor that theâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culprit. For a nearly dessert-like experience, visit Venicio Guerraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoeboxsize BO_cS`WO:O;]`S\O (11 E. Moreland Ave.) in Hatboro. They make horchata from scratch roughly every other day, combining best-ofthe-best canela with soaked-overnight rice and then blending. Sweet condensed milk (no whole here), a dash of vanilla and sugar make for quite the sweet horchata, pushing the spicier cinnamon notes to the background. Having multiple glasses can catch up with you, especially if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re eating something rich like cemitas (Pueblan sandwiches) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but then again, drinking a light dessert is never a bad thing.
