“This layered port cocktail is inspired by the Oscar nominated movie La La Land,” says Jenn Knott, Head Bartender at 312 Chicago. It’s made with cognac, amaro, lemon juice, simple syrup, port and an egg white. “I used cognac, which I view as a romantic spirit because of its origins in France.” Then she used Montenegro because of its dark, mysterious and dreamy qualities. “This cocktail is sweet and sour, and the port adds a wild and untamed quality that I find in jazz music.” While this cocktail is simple it is also complicated.

The Ridge is a modern, slim, front pocket wallet, made to declutter the modern lifestyle. The main compartment is an expandable card holder, for any and all forms of plastic payment and identification. Attached to that is your choice of a money clip or cash strap for when old fashioned paper money is your best option. Being on the smaller, compact side means the Ridge doesn’t encourage the typical flotsam and jetsam acquisition of the traditional leather bi-fold, with its faded receipts and unnecessary cards. The Ridge re-evaluates your everyday carry and gets rid of the bulk.
