LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS — It’s always a treat to sit in front of a bartender who is skilled in both the physical aspect of their job, as well as the intellectual. We caught up with one such local bartender, Alex Reynolds, during their most recent shift.
“Oh that one is very delicious, juicy. We start with a smoky scotch…” they said to seat 5, clearly captivated. “And round that off with some ginger syrup, which gives it a nice spicy ginger, uh, finish,” they went on while building another ticket of 6 cocktails.
The guest ordered the cocktail and watched as Alex crafted a drink as beautiful as their words. At last report, the guest described the cocktail as “juicy” and “nice” just as described.
