Nothing like a drink to start your day
What's not to love about a Bloody Mary? The fun of the Bloody Mary is it's a unique drink (and meal) to many people. The idea behind the traditional bar staple is simple and basic: seasoned tomato juice and spirit. But since the flavor of tomato can overlap so many food groups, it's a blank canvas to the consumer and everyone has a way they like it. LUXBAR's Bar Manager, Ryan Lindquist, takes us on the journey to make the classic cocktail at home.
Bar Manager at LUXBAR
Ryan Gunnar Lindquist, son of a military family, was born in Alaska and grew up in St. Louis. After attending college at Eastern Illinois University, to study Environmental Sciences, Ryan moved to Chicago to fulfill his dream of living in the city his father called home. While volunteering at the Shedd Aquarium, Ryan joined the GRG team after being recommended by a friend for a busser position. Having never worked in restaurants before, Ryan quickly took to the pace and purpose of hospitality. Before long, he was working behind the bar as bar back. Ryan enjoys spending time with his customers and the creativity involved in crafting cocktails. Once Ryan donned the bartender’s vest, he quickly dove into the world of spirits and never looked back.
