1 - Chicago Creation: Barkeep! Recipe Box

Barkeep! Recipe Box is a collaboration of Chicago's most creative minds.

The Barkeep! Recipe Box ($22) is a collection of four cocktail recipe cards designed by three local companies: stationery purveyor Suitor, online magazine Glossed & Found, and charitable beauty service Prescription Well-Being. Each highlighted recipe was contributed by one of Glossed & Found’s favorite past guests, like makeup maven Bobbi Brown, whose cocktail of choice is a cucumber-mint fresh martini. Other contributors include designer Kelly Wearstler, Christina Zilber of Jouer Cosmetics, and Katrina Markoff of Vosges Haut-Chocolat. Printed on Cordenons paper, the cocktail cards come in a gold foil stamped box with a set of four vintage swizzle sticks.

All of the proceeds from Barkeep! benefit Prescription Well-Being, an organization that provides beauty treatments and spa services to women struggling with their changing appearance due to cancer. Stacey Roney founded the organization in honor of a friend in 2001, and hopes to one day open a standalone spa dedicated to women and children fighting the disease.

Even better, 100% of Barkeep!’s proceeds are able to go to charity through the generous donation of Rohner Letterpress, which provided complimentary printing services. The Suitor + Glossed & Found Barkeep! Recipe Box for Prescription Well-Being is available through the end of the year at suitorlife.com.
