Eight Candidates for Great Sating: New Cocktail Bars
New Booze May 2016: Lots of gin, a few tequilas, rum, bourbon, scotch, rice whiskey, and more

Join Camper English at the Chicago Cocktail Summit this May!

Screen Shot 2016-04-21 at 12.55.13 PMI'll be giving two talks at the first Chicago Cocktail Summit on May 22 and 23, 2016. 

The summit is divided into two days: the first one for consumers and home enthusiasts, and the second for industry folk and bartenders. 

For consumer day, I'll talking about....wait for it.... ice! 

All About Ice


Explore the (relatively recent) history of ice in cocktails, how commercial ice machines work, ways to make super sexy crystal clear ice blocks, cubes, and spheres at home (protip: it doesn’t involve boiling water), and some fun projects you can do with colored, flavored, and other forms of ice.

For bartender day I'll be talking about pre-ice, also known as water.


Water: A Super Sciency Geek-Out 


In this nerd-forward seminar, we’ll get your brains wet talking about how local water sources impact final flavor in spirits (hint: it’s not how you think it does). Explore whether “bourbon and branch” is bunk, how to categorize bottled waters and how they affect the flavor of your whiskey (and your cocktails), how to make custom carbonated mineral waters, and much, much more!

There are many more seminars by other excellent speakers, and I quite like the way they are arranging the seminars: one day pass allows access to 4 talks on that day, all for the price of one seminar at some other conferences. 

I hope to see you at the Chicago Cocktail Summit this May!
