Henry's Spotify playlist & inspiration
With this playlist, I wanted to show Charlotte's eclectic range of music with an ode to every bar or restaurant I've ever worked in this city. It houses a selection of various artists local to Charlotte and the state of North Carolina, as well as many others that I've found my constant companions throughout my time and travels in the industry. This is an all-encompassing list of artists, so be prepared to go all over the place! I enjoy almost every type of music, which is readily apparent in this playlist. I hope you enjoy it!
I'm Henry Schmulling, and this is my Behind the Shot playlist.

What do you love about your city?
It's a constantly growing metropolis with endless possibilities, and even though there are some growing pains and old haunts lost along the way, there is always the promise that tomorrow will bring new opportunities that embolden the city and its inhabitants to new heights. I've spent most of my life here, and although I love to travel and have moved away a few times, I always end up coming back.
My inspiration for this cocktail comes from my love of all things fall in Charlotte. We get to experience all the seasons here in North Carolina, but fall is by far my favorite, and it's not something I take for granted. Charlotte is known as "The City of Trees," and this time of year, it's easy to see why. An array of colors floods the city almost overnight, from vibrant yellows to varied amber hues; it's a spectacle to behold every year. Being the second largest banking center in the country, we have a myriad of people from all over the world coming to our city daily. For years this diversity has had a direct correlation with the thriving F&B community here in Charlotte and the rest of the Piedmont region. I wanted to accent some of that complexity while still providing a cocktail that is something palatable to all. A shockingly refreshing combination of fall flavors and Jägermeister blend to create this crushable November bevy. Cheers!
