PHILADELPHIA - Mike’s BBQ in South Philly and Elverson, PA’s Resurgent Whiskey are partnering on a collaborative event featuring BBQ and whiskey this Saturday, December 10th, from noon to 3 p.m. at Mike’s BBQ, located at 1703 S. 11th Street in Philadelphia.
In what will be the first time that pitmaster Mike Strauss has collaborated with a craft spirits brand at his beloved BBQ shop, the event will feature seasonal and holiday-inspired cocktails utilizing Resurgent Whiskey paired with a variety of BBQ options.
In addition to complimentary whiskey and cocktail samplings, Resurgent cocktails and bottles will be available for purchase, including Resurgent’s Young American Bourbon and Custom Cask 100 Bourbon, along with Resurgent’s newly released botanical whiskies: Resurgent Coffee + Chicory Root Whiskey; and Resurgent Sarsaparilla + Cherry Bark + Licorice Root Whiskey.
“We’re calling this a Whiskey & BBQ party, and I’m very excited host this event,” said Strauss. “I met the team from Resurgent at the Trauma Survivors Foundation’s Black Tie & Sneaker Gala last month, and we decided to collaborate on an event together on the spot. I’m looking very forward to seeing how our customers respond to this fun, festive holiday tasting.”
The cocktails, which will all be made with Resurgent’s Young American Bourbon, include a Chocolate Old Fashioned, a Spiced Cherry Mule, an Apple Chai, and Eggnog. All guests 21 years or older can sample any of the cocktails and craft spirits for free and/or purchase the 6 oz. cocktails for $10 apiece, or 750 ML bottled cocktails that serve six for $30.
