MAKER´S MARK HOMESTORY #3 - DRINK AND SWEETS

The massaged meat is slowly cooking in the smoke. The homemade BBQ sauce has joined a range of hearty sides, ready to be drizzled over something delicious. For Fossi, this is the cue to mix some drinks!

To offset the deep, intense BBQ flavours, Fossi has decided to shake up a fresh take on a Whiskey Sour, a recipe he originally created together with Leo Sommerfeld. High time to kick back and relax for a bit … if it wasn’t for those pesky colleagues …

Here's how to make your Kentucky Straight Bourbon part of a delicious, authentic BBQ

Usually, our day is all about high-end drinks made with high-end spirits. At least in theory. The corona virus has moved our everyday focus from bar to home. A seismic shift that also affects our German brand ambassadors. While they should be out there, moving around, visiting you, swapping news and tips or trying novel concoctions, corona has put a break to all that. 

Since they were happy and eager to explore new ways to communicate with the community and share their love of excellent spirits, we’ve given them some new tools of the trade: a set of video equipment. Let’s see what they’ve come up with to give us a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes. 

So, what happens when we leave Jan Forsberg aka Fossi at home with nothing but a camera, a microphone and a few bottles of Maker’s Mark? That’s the topic of our very first brand ambassador home story. 

Anyone who’s met Fossi will know that he loves good food at least as much as he loves great drinks – after all, the combo of food and drink lends itself to some creative collaborations. Inspired by the Kentucky Straight Bourbon down-to-earth roots, Fossi decided to invite us all to his first BBQ of the season – featuring Maker’s Mark on the grill, on the plate and in the glass. Cheers!
