Drink Guide

For some extra holiday fun try these two cocktails. The Stone Wall is the perfect holiday drink and combines rum, apple cider and ginger beer for a good fall taste. Secondly Tommy Gun, referencing the machine gun used by mobsters in the 20s. This drink gives you a little late night kick with its touch of ginger, some lemon, and some hearty Irish Whiskey to go along with it. Both of these cocktails have ingredients that can be purchased at The Bottle Shop or Geneva Liquors in Lake Geneva.
