If that’s not a good reason behind a cocktail name, I don’t know what is. (Bitterness? Check!) Steve sent me this cocktail recipe a few weeks ago and I was very happy to share. As he explained, “I had taken several trips to New Orleans and wanted to do a New Orleans classic style cocktail but with Chicago ingredients.”So why Letherbee Bësk (formerly Letherbee Mälort)? “While the ingredients are adaptable, I do prefer to make this drink with Letherbee Bësk, a wormwood schnapps made in Chicago.
Listeners of our podcast (especially folks who have listened since the beginning) know that I have a bit of an .. ahem… Rum Problem. Namely, I love rum. And Chris doesn’t. (He’s starting to come around, thankfully… but my work is never done! So when I came across this tasty looking cocktail featuring a hefty dose of demerara rum, I was excited to give it a go! One of the great benefits of spirited cocktails like this one is just how darn easy they are to make. Three ingredients. One mixing glass.
It’s a rare find in cocktail bars, restaurants, and most definitely in the home. But nugget ice (also called “Pebble”, “Pellet”, “Chewable” or even “Sonic” ice) has a near-cult following. Sonic (the fast food joint) invested in Scotsman ice machines across the franchise two decades ago and ice chewers nationwide have become addicted to the chewy, airy ice. (Don’t believe me? Here’s one of the dozens of Facebook pages I found dedicated to “Sonic Ice.”)But what does that mean for cocktails?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
