Several of the bottled pleasures on the shelf at Barrel Society come from Gorogianis’ home region of Chicago, such as Jeppson’s Malört, a bitter liqueur appropriate for seasoned imbibers, or those who want to become one.
But what is master mixologist Gorogianis’ favorite drink? He can’t narrow it to one — a glass of Four Roses bourbon, paired with a cold Pabst Blue Ribbon.
“I can go for those every time,” Gorogianis observed.
