Cheers Sippin Gypsy Team Vodka! This post comes to you while enjoying my Sippin Gypsy Sorbet Sparkler with peach sorbet, mint from my garden and gin, a refeshing little cocktail that reminded me of the bold flavors I enjoyed memories of gathering around a grill with family and friend and my new found Best I've ever had barbecue while in Chicago Illinois at Green Street Smoked Meats!
I was raised in Midwest America. Smoked meats and barbecue resonates with the happiest of summer and fall memories where friends and family gathered around the grill picking at spicy smoky flavors of barbecued meats. My father taught me how to grill, and to this day, every summer I enjoy the process of preparing ribs, steaks, chicken for a low a slow barbecue and gathering around the grill for great conversation, cocktails and of course meat!
While in Chicago Illinois, I met up with my cousin Ryan and to his excellent suggestion savored the best barbecue I've had from a restaurant ever! Green Street Smoked Meats was a casual comfortable spot with community style seating and truly the most flavor packed, tender, delicious smoked meats! We sat for hours enjoying cocktails and barbecue and catching up on memories. Thank you Ryan for suggesting Green Street Smoked Meats...it truly was a meal to remember!
