Good Luck Olyn!

I'm a little late in posting this, but last month our good friend and barback, Olyn, left Range to concentrate on school and web design. Olyn is a great guy with a wry sense of humor and a deep appreciation for the great outdoors. In fact, I followed his advice last summer and spent five days in Malakoff Diggins State Park, which is about 50 miles northwest of Lake Tahoe. We had a fantastic time, and have Olyn to thank.
Cheers, buddy!

P.S. Just to tie this all in with cocktails, here's a little tip for all you campers out there: Metal water bottles make excellent cocktail shakers, particularly for making frosty margaritas. I squeeze and freeze my lime juice before leaving home, just to save space. Measure the tequila and agave nectar, chip off a little frozen juice, toss in a hand full of ice, close the lid and shake. Pour entire contents into a couple of camping mugs and shazam... delicious post-hike refreshments!

Camping Margarita
6 oz. reposado tequila
2 oz. lime juice
1 oz. agave nectar (cut 1:1 with water)
Serves two.
