liquor

There's a new, unique collaboration between a locally distilled hazelnut liqueur and a new Shakespeare podcast. Sales of Queen Mab, named after a character that appears in several of Shakespeare's works, will support Froghammer Shakespeare, a local theater start-up planning a podcast. 

Pretty much every spirit known to man begins life as some sort of plant: sake began with a grain of rice; scotch emerged from barley; tequila from agave; rum from sugarcane; and bourbon from corn. In The Drunken Botanist, Amy Stewart explores how humans have, through ingenuity, inspiration, and sheer desperation, contrived to transform all matter of plant life into alcohol over the centuries. She’s with Mark Perzel this morning for a little liquor education.
