We honor the science and the stories behind some of the better…and lesser known adult beverages. Enjoy the journey across the palate…and through the centuries!

“Professor” Mark Griswold attacks mixology with his biochemist background…add to that insights from “palate panel members” sharing myths and legends and even concoction ingredients and variations …this program has it all.  You will get recipes…a little history lesson…an understanding as to what is at work as tastes and ingredients are applied to various processes…producing a product with a great social and economic ripple effect…which is celebrated as well!
