Moonshine — it’s one of the hottest cocktail ingredients out there now, but how much do you really know about it? Well, if curiosity is calling your name, head over to Barolo Ristorante on Sat., November 15th for a lunch and learn. Barolo has invited in Mark Spivak, author of Moonshine Nation: The Art of Creating Cornbread in a Bottle for this special event. This book documents the journey of America’s true native spirit—corn whiskey—from the Whiskey Rebellion to the present day.
Guests will enjoy a 3-course lunch at Barolo prepared by chef Will Figueroa, while listening to Spivak talk about his new book and share stories about his 1-yr journey through the backwoods of Kentucky, Tennessee and the Carolina’s. Did you know that without moonshine, there would be no NASCAR?
The event will take place on Saturday, November 15, 2014 from 12:30 – 2:00 p.m. at Barolo Ristorante, 1201 U.S. Hwy 1, North Palm Beach (on U.S. 1, just south of PGA Boulevard).
Cost for this event is $35 and pre-registration is required by November 12th. This includes the 3-course meal with a glass of soda, iced tea or Prosecco and a copy of Spivak’s book, Moonshine Nation: The Art of Creating Cornbread in a Bottle.
