New Northstar Cocktails book is a home bartender's best friend
The logo on the cover of Northstar Cocktails, the new cocktail guide by local cocktail superstars Johnny Michaels and the North Star Bartenders' Guild, could be suitable as a super cool rock band logo; this is no coincidence--the guys and gals who created the recipes in this extensive guide are local mixology rock stars, pushing the boundaries of cocktail culture, taking the classics and adding their own unique riffs.
The North Star Bartenders Guild is made up of the cities' most cosmically talented barkeeps including the Strip Club's Dan Oskey, two time Iron Bartender winner Jesse Held, and Peder Schweigert and Pip Hanson from Marvel Bar. Micheals is the playful narrator, with the guild members contributing their signature recipes.
