poolside conversations

1 1/2 oz Banhez Mezcal (Peloton de la Muerte)
3/4 oz Dolin Blanc Vermouth
1/2 oz Benedictine
2 dash Orange Bitters (Angostura Orange)

Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass, and garnish with lemon oil from a twist.
Two Tuesdays, I returned to the online recipe flashcard sets from The Violet Hour in Chicago, and I was lured in by the Poolside Conversations on their current Spring/Summer 2024 menu. I was intrigued for it fell somewhere between the Oaxacan Dream and the Kerouac. The bar's Instagram attributed it to bartender Ed Kosek with the description of, "Inspired by the tranquility of late-night swims, it captures the relaxed vibe of hanging out with friends and family by the pool, while enjoying the earth's nighttime fragrance." In the glass, the Poolside Conversations began with a lemon, herbal, vegetal, and smoke aroma. Next, a white wine and caramel sip splashed into smoky mezcal, floral, and herbal flavors on the swallow.

Fred - dumb question - how do access some of these online flashcard sets?
Are they available for a fee or are they free?
I've checked a few websites for places that you referenced and I don't see any flashcards.
Just wondering.

I find them on Quizlet and Brainscape. They are free if you can find the interesting ones.
