We’ll raise a cup of holiday cheer as award winning author Jeanette Hurt shares the stories behind Wisconsin’s iconic cocktails in a festive virtual lecture on Friday, December 10 from 2:30-3:30pm. We find out why Wisconsin has a love affair with brandy Old Fashioneds, Tom and Jerrys, gigantic, garnished Bloody Marys - with a beer chaser of course, boozy ice cream drinks and more. We’ll find out the likely reason Wisconsin favors Korbel brandy more than any other state and hear about some new twists on classic drinks.
