It is a hard truth: not all drinks are created equal. Some taste bad. Some are an affront to the good liquor used to make them. And some...well, let’s just say some drinks don’t earn you brownie points with the bartender who has to make them. (Looking at you, gin fizz.) We asked 7 bartenders across the country what drinks you should avoid at all costs. Below, the blacklist:Shaun Maglen, Péché, Austin, Texas Maglen takes a live and let live approach: “It doesn’t exist.
September is the first month in the grand recipe rodeo we call cookbook season. 2017 is coming on strong right out of the gate, with big names (Paul Kahan, Moosewood), big ideas (3-ingredient cocktails, modern slow cooker recipes), and big flavors (QUESO!). Below are a few of my favorites, and there's a lot more where they came from. Bäco by Josef Centeno and Betty Hallock Based on Centeno’s popular Los Angeles restaurant Bäco Mercat, Bäco focuses on bright flavors and vegetables.
Plenty of bars look great at a glance: great atmosphere, fun soundtrack, deep cocktail list. But then, sigh, the limes were clearly cut yesterday, the glasses have fingerprints on them, and oof—have you seen the bathroom? Too bad for you, you didn’t find these things out until after you spent your hard-earned fifteen dollars on a mediocre cocktail. Ian Fletcher, Tiger Fork, Washington, DC For Fletcher, it’s the small things. “One simple one: light bulbs. Look and see if there are bulbs out.
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".
