Local Bartenders Getting Their Props

Charleston's chefs have been receiving national media attention for quite some time, and now some of our local bartenders are getting a little notice, too.

Garden & Gun just ran a nice piece featuring Brooks Reitz of FIG, who gave them a recipe for the lost classic Remember the Maine (how's that for a drink name?)  And, Joe Raya of the Gin Joint appears in this Imbibe Magazine piece on Southern Comfort for his take on Philadelphia Fish House Punch.

I talked to both Reitz and Raya myself not too long ago for a piece on rum I wrote for the City Paper, and I can attest they not only know their stuff but are really nice guys, too.
