Brandy: Not just for Wisconsin anymore…

| August 31, 2010

You might not know this, but Packer Nation not only consumes per capita unhealthy amounts of beer, cheese, brats, and Farve drama; but also the Don Draper of forgotten liquors…brandy. When you order a Manhattan in Wisconsin, you’re probably gonna get it back made with brandy. The state consumes more brandy per capita than any other in our fine fifty.

San Francisoans can now enjoy the fine spirit along with some fine Caffé Vita coffee while lounging along the Embarcadero at Lafitte. From the Thrillist.com daily email, a column about eats and drinks in outdoor settings:

Make your way over to the only resto on Pier 5 named after a smuggler/privateer/pirate for The Baptiste cocktail: a flaming drink served hot in a coffee mug that’s made up of brandy, orange peel, cloves, cinnamon, sugar, and Caffé Vita coffee–suggesting the best part of waking up is…not Folger’s.
