Big Bad Breakfast
Did you know that before bourbon, rum was the South's favorite spirit? Come learn about the fascinating history of rum, its distillation process, and its role in drinks both classic and contemporary. You'll sample a Snackbar cocktail that features rum in a starring role and taste-test a selection of styles.
You'll also have the opportunity for SFA Managing Editor Sara Camp Milam to sign your copy of The Southern Foodways Alliance Guide to Cocktails (UGA Press, 2017).
From the book:
The Souths relationship with drinking is complicated. Although religious and legal mandates discourage the sale and consumption of alcohol, the region has a robust drinking culture. As the home of NASCAR, a sport that arose from the high-speed antics of bootleggers, and Tennessee Williams, a man notorious for both his literary genius and his propensity to imbibe, the Bible Belt has a booze-soaked background. In the recipes and essays in The Southern Foodways Alliance Guide to Cocktails, Jerry Slater and Sara Camp Milam and their cocktail cabinet of contributors bridge the gaps between the culture, history, and practice of drinking in the South.
