I want to take a moment a congratulate my partner in Cocktails-For-Hope and the driving force behind cocktails-to-go in Illinois, Julia Momose. Without her great media presence and steady hand, we would never have made it over the finish line. Also a shout out to our other partner, the extraordinary talented Ian Beacraft.

Julia was named bartender of the year by VinePair

A great piece by Tim McKirdy in VinePair highlights Julia’s great efforts. I was honored to be mentioned in the piece.
