AFBA Virtual Happy Hour with Milam & Greene Whiskey

By October 9, 2020Events

Cheers to whiskey! Milam & Greene Whiskey, a distillery from Blanco, Texas, hosted a happy hour for our Austin Food Blogger Alliance members, complete with samples of their triple cask bourbon and port finished rye whiskey.

Whiskey expert, author, master blender, and CEO of Milam & Greene Whiskey, Heather Greene, joined our happy hour to share more about tasting whiskey and the cocktails we could make. We were asked to have a grapefruit and orange ready along with our whiskey to make some simple serve cocktails.

Here’s a look into our happy hour through the Instagram accounts of our members:

Often when I'm thinking about making a cocktail at home, I frantically dig through my pantry. "I need garnishes!" I yell to no one in particular. "What is vermouth and would it be good in this??" I scream into the abyss. "SHOULD I USE LILAC?!" as an entire shelf collapses, scattering everything from cinnamon to Cheez-Its across the floor. 🍹 Luckily, we had an #AFBAHH whiskey happy hour with @thewhiskeyauthority, who showed us how to make cocktails with only @milamandgreene rye or bourbon and an orange or grapefruit. You just peel a bit of the rind, rub it between your fingers over the glass, and then toss the peel into your drink. AND IT'S SO GOOD. That's quite a-peelin'! 🥃 So thank you to Milam & Greene, Heather Greene, @bigthirstmarketing and @atxfoodblogs for showing me the way. Cocktails don't need to be intimidating to be delicious. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go clean up my pantry. 🧹 #atxfoodblogs #milamandgreene #bigthirstmarketing #cocktailhour #atxfoodbloggers #austinfoodbloggeralliance #whiskeytasting #virtualhappyhour #letsdrinkyall #portfinishedrye #triplecaskbourbon #bourbonandorange #ryeandgrapefruit #whiskeyexpert #craftcocktails #homebartender #cheerstothat #whiskeyglass #peeler #thatsapeelin #austinfoodbloggers #austinfoodies #austincommunity #austintexas #foodiebloggers #drinksofinstagram #minibottles #pourmeaglass #threedayweekend
