Sorry for the flub, it's just that we have so many amazing events going on in Lake Geneva and in our store over the next few weeks, we have filled the shop with so many new goodies to share with you! Stop in and see us at New World Wine Shop while you are in town for Winefest. There it is again! We mean, W I N T E R F E S T!
Warming Up Winterfest
One of our most favorite weekends in Lake Geneva is back again! Winterfest starts this weekend, January 28th and keeps all of us in Lake Geneva and surrounding towns looking, and begging for more! Just when we thought the winter blues were upon us, the streets of Lake Geneva come alive and fill-up with talented snow sculpture artists for a week-long championship event.
In true Wisconsin spirit, we welcome not only the U.S. Snow Sculpting staff and competing artists, but we welcome true, hardcore Wisconsin weather. Cold and snowy is how we like it! Full winter gear of gloves, hats, layers of flannel and fleece. Nobody can "do" the midwest winters quite like we can here in Wisconsin... and nobody can "do" a nice, stiff Old Fashioned like the Bourbon from Central Standard Distillery.
Why can't they do it like anyone else?
Because they are also from Wisconsin. February is childsplay to this Milwaukee based distillery. So come for Winterfest and stop into New World Wine Shop for some face melting (literally) Old Fashioneds.

We just looked at the weather and the first thing that came to mind is it's going to be a great night to watch a movie or read a book at home. Seriously cold nights like this call for a Hot Toddy! They are amazingly easy to make, especually when you go by the store this afternoon and grab some Stillhouse Whiskey. Work your drink around the various flavors, or work the flavors around the drink.
1.5 ounces of whiskey, (brandy or rum work too)
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 ounce of lemon juice
1 cup hot water
Lemon wedge, cinnamon stick, or whatever else you want to ganish with
Combine the first four ingredients into a coffee mug of teacup. Add garnish / flavors as you wish.
Stay warm friends!
