21 ways to eat like a Wisconsinite
The March cover story of Milwaukee Magazine focuses on 21 ways to eat like a Wisconsinite. From the Wisconsin Old Fashioned to Custard to the Butter Burger to Booyah stew to Real Chili to Broasted Chicken, Milwaukee Magazine travels around the state to find the most Wisconsin food and drink items.
History of Rum Cocktail Class on March 8 at Great Lakes Distillery
Rum used to be the most popular spirit in the United States, but that popularity has waned with the rise of whiskey. The history of the New World is intertwined with the history of rum.
Join Brendan and Ross as they take you from colonial America to the modern day through a rum cocktail glass. Learn how 17th century industrial waste became the liquid that would fund a young nation to victory over the most powerful country in the world.
During the class, you will be introduced to what could be considered the very first rum cocktail, as well as other drinks that helped define the spirit, and the places where it was consumed.
$25 includes 4 sample cocktails & a recipe sheet to take home.
