Drink Local!

Welcome to my newly added Examiner profile! In addition to the Syracuse Cooking Examiner features I write I have added Syracuse Drinks Examiner to the list. The articles that I will be featuring will explore places in and around Syracuse to enjoy wine and spirits, local breweries and wineries, along with liquor stores in our neighborhoods.

So what makes me such an expert in drink area? Well, I've been in the bar business since I was 18. And not to date myself, but I have YEARS of experience. I've worked from corporate restaurant bars, college pubs, to mom and pop restaurants. I've worked in just about every aspect of the bar scene: from bartending, managing, travelling for a company to train their staff on knowledge/distribution, even a stint as a well-known rum brand's "shooter girl". Not to mention, I enjoy a good adult beverage.

I thought it would be an interesting idea to take my knowledge and combine it with everything Syracuse has to offer. From our beautiful Finger Lake wineries to great places to grab a beer and watch a SU game. I look forward to the articles and reviews to come, and I encourage anyone reading this to share their favorite place/ drink with me! I'd love to feature it. My email is melport_examiner@yahoo.com
