For a fundraiser at Everwood Farmstead Foundation, located in Glenwood City, Wisconsin, Jason Suss of A Proper Pour created two signature drinks, including BeeSqueezin’, that were inspired by the beehives located on the farmstead (and in which he got to use the farm’s honey and cider). 

In late September, guests gathered at Everwood Farmstead, about 70 miles east of Minneapolis, for the foundation’s annual Cultivate fundraiser, where they dined on a meal created by Jim Christiansen of Heyday Restaurant and enjoyed local artists such as Kevin Kling, Chastity Brown and Simone Perrin—all while enjoying the thoughtfully crafted cocktails from Suss.

INGREDIENTS:
—2 oz. Tattersall (or other) gin
—2 oz. apple cider
—1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
—3/4 oz. honey syrup (Everwood Honey ... if you are lucky enough to have some)
—one dash of bitters; Bittercube Bolivar or Dashfire Spiced Apple are great local options

DIRECTIONS:
Add above ingredients to cocktail shaker with ice. Shake. Strain and pour into glass with ice and matchstick-cut apples. Garnish with a slapped thyme sprig and fresh ground cinnamon.

When Minneapolis won the bid to host Super Bowl LII back in May 2014, the city and its people got to work. By the time the Eagles defeated the Patriots on Feb. 4, 2018, in front of a crowd of 67,612, more than 150 Super Bowl-related parties and events took place, 1,055,000 people attended the 10-day fan festival and 1.4 million people visited the Mall of America. The next day, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport waved good-bye to a record-breaking 61,000 visitors, and the people who worked tirelessly to pull off the event breathed a collective sigh of relief.

 

Crafted by Hi-Lo Diner Bar Director Ryan Barott, this bright, refreshing riff on the French 75 is the perfect summer sipper. A simple yet complex cocktail, the South of France is one of Hi-Lo’s many creations featuring a fresh take on fan favorites.
