Specially created for the collection launch, guests were treated to the delicious Maker’s Mark Signature Serve: a spiced mandarin and mint julep, served over crushed ice in a beautiful, limited edition Maker’s Mark Pewter Cup.
Showcasing the versatility of the premium bourbon, guests also enjoyed Maker’s Mark with seasonal golden grapefruit and pineapple served in a champagne flute, the refreshing combination of Maker’s Mark served with apple juice and ginger beer, and for the traditionalists in the crowd, Maker’s Mark simply served over ice.
