HIGHBALLS

Shoe Maker...........................$8
Genever, Old Tom , London Dry,
Orange-Salt Bitters, Tonic
(Restaurant slang for an individual who is particularly lazy, always looking for a shortcut, and trying to get away with shoe maker-y stuff)


The Lifer................................$8
Blended Scotch, Lemongrass, Bitter Lemon Soda
(Service Industry slang for someone who has spent their entire career in the industry and likely will retire in the industry. Lifers often once had dreams of being
musicians, designers, photographers, fine artists -and many still are, at least at heart.)


Short Timer...........................$8
Botanical Vodka, Cucumber Water, Lime, Agave Nectar
(Short timers are employees who have put in their notice at their current job and generally quit giving a hoot, seeing the light at the end of the tunnel)


Line Cook................................$8
Bourbon, Tamarind Bitters, Ginger Brew
(Line cooks are regularly the hardest working individuals in the building, and usually don’t make very much money even though they work ridiculously long hours in blisteringly hot kitchens. To spot one look for scars from knives and burns and a glass of bourbon)


S.A............................................$8
Tequila, Grapefruit Soda,
Lavender Bitters, Lime, Piloncillo
(Server assistants, often called SA’s , are the line cooks of the foh- they do the unglamorous jobs: run food, bus tables, fill waters, etc. They are an integral part of restaurant operations. Next time you encounter one, thank him/ her for making service happen)
