This thread is also available in podcast form if you prefer audio.
Chipotle for Cocktails
Chipotle is simple, you choose three (3) things:
Food Style (Burrito, Bowl, Salad, Tacos)
Cocktails are complicated. You either:
Choose your go-to cocktail
Choose something randomly from a menu
This is where Chipotle for Cocktails comes in. Imagine a bar where you go in and it has three (3) choices:
Choose your Spirit
Choose your Sweetener
Choose your Bitters
And you come out with a custom cocktail made just for you.
