Maker's Mark Hurricane Cocktail to Celebrate Besh Big Easy: Whisk(e)y Wednesday presented by Lock & Key

by Sydney "Brown Nose" Blanchard

Congrats to Chef John Besh

On October 9 and 10 in Kentucky, Maker's Mark Distillery is honoring the New Orleans native with a Maker's Mark TasteMaker Award and celebrating the release of his fourth cookbook, Besh Big Easy! It's always great to see Louisiana chefs recognized across the country.

Since we can't be there to participate in the festivities in person, we'll be enjoying this Maker's Mark Hurricane in the privacy of our own office. 

Cheers to Chef John Besh and his latest venture, Besh Big Easy!
