Cocktail Inspiration:

Drinking brings people together, my best memories are with the friends I grew up with in Wisconsin. Especially in the summer time after what seemed like the never ending winter finally stopped for a few months. I live in Florida now but the drinking here cant even compare to the drinking experiences one would have in Wisconsin. I decided to combine all the Wisco favorites of beer, cheese and booze.
