PIG Roast: the aftermath

August 22, 2008 at 6:46 pm (Our Favorite Things, Special Events, What we're drinking) (, , , , , )

What up, yo? I am incredibly excited and still dizzy from the rush of the pig roast on Wednesday night with Freddy Noe of Jim Beam, one handsome and tasty pig, a foot stompin’ band, and plenty of lushes. The three classic bourbon and rye cocktails were delicious…I must admit it was tough to resist drinking the entire pitcher of maple julep that I was continuously refilling with fresh mint, maple syrup, and Beam Rye. Yum! We had a great crowd and a wildly good time! JOIN us next time…

Was BEAM your first taste or whiskey?! While Jim Beam remains madly popular, the Beam family has taken their love for making great bourbon to the next level…crafting a line of spectacular bourbons that make up the Small Batch Collection. As the 7th in a generation of bourbon distillers, Fred Noe is now in charge of carrying on the Beam family legacy and oversees the making of not only the Jim Beam bourbons, but Knob Creek, Booker’s, Basil Hayden’s and Bakers. LUSH has signed bottles available…and even a couple of the Master’s Collection, as well.

I won’t bury you in words…just wanted to share the pictures from the knee slappin’ good time at the Beam PIG ROAST.

DRINKS: Ms. Erin and Ms. Rachel shook it all night long…pouring pitchers of classic bourbon whiskey cocktails.

The Seelbach…Beam White Label, Triple Sec, and Champagne.

Maple Julep…Beam Rye, mint, lemon, and maple syrup.

Woo, fancy. 19th Street…Beam Black Label, Aperol, bitters, tangerine.

And, I would like to graciously thank Mr. Pig for nourishing us, the hungry lushes.
